A new website has been constructed to host the knowledge of the non profit efficiency exploration project lead by Golden Community Resources Society.

www.GoldenLoom.ca is a modest website that is intended to be the first line of research for non profits (societies and charities) looking to assess their organization, their place in the community and to share efficiency concepts.

Until now, the project has been focused on secondary research. The consultant, Ryan Watmough, has been reviewing non profits and their supporting systems from across Canada and around the world; he’s also been looking to better understand how local groups have already developed efficiencies.

Now that this information has been collected and shared with local non profits, their staff and volunteers, the primary research phase can begin. This phase will be very useful in directing non profits’ energy and resources into future collaborative projects. Separate from the expected advantage of improved cooperation, this type of community-wide research and alignment should prove to be attractive to prospective donors, external non profit supporters, researchers and funders.

Stay tuned for upcoming local non profit engagement and consultation opportunities, which will direct future actions of this initiative. To share how your non profit is weaving the tapestry of our community, contact Mr. Watmough at nonprofits.gcrs@gmail.com.

Golden Community Resources Society administers non statutory social services in the Golden area including employment programs, early learning programs, and seniors housing.
