Transcript of Copy of NPO Team Report

Our function
experience with a non profit organizations
Operation Book Club
Group 4
How we operate:
Why it works:
Use community as a pool of goods:
Students, parents, teachers
You need to buy books for next quarter.
Exchange this quarter's books
for credit.
Use credit to purchase next quarter's books.
Operation Book Club benefits from profit
System facilitates exchange of books,
saves students money.
We ask for donations: $$$
Our mission is to provide and facilitate the process of purchasing books and supplies for all education and grade levels by greatly reducing student’s costs through our exchange network of student and parent communities.
Our vision is a ‘skyscraper’ library of books; to have all Chicago students from all grades trade, donate, and purchase their books from OBC.
Service Delivery
We vow to use our skills to best stay on track with our mission, to be competitive and to constantly and creatively strive to grab share of the student market to fulfill their unmet needs.
“If you're for-profit, try to enact change through social entrepreneurship; if you are non-profit, think about sustaining your business!"- Matt Sheehan

-Intellectual capital

-Supportive Board

-Secular organization- anyone is welcome to be a donor and/or support our initiatives
-Opportunities in local media coverage have yet to be identified

-Lack of social networking outreach

-No existing website

-No existing inventory

-Task force being volunteers, can sometimes be unpredictable/unreliable

-Low pay might discourage paid workers
-Partnerships—opportunities for growth through partnerships are abundant

-Potential to significantly increase our network of partners through social media

-Board members of OBC are well connected, could bring more capable members on Board

-If contacted, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, etc. could open up new doors of funding
-Fluctuations in economy—volatile economy could threaten our organizations ability to achieve our goals

-Competing organizations (especially those that may be better funded than OBC)

-Inactive Board—crucial that OBC acknowledge and reach out to donors and keep them connected

-Negative view of nonprofits—over the past several years there have been countless news stories about nonprofits large and small who have misused funds and/or misled donors

-Donors are becoming increasingly reluctant to give
