7. Non-Financial Resources for NGOs

If carefully planned and managed, NGOs can benefit tremendously from the non-financial resources. But what are the non-financial resources? They are many. There is volunteer time, first of all. If NGOs look around, there will be many supporters who are ready to keenly provide their services. They can be sought among friends and other known people. Students who wish to gain some valuable experience can be involved in volunteer service. Volunteer skilled service may also be required by NGOs. For example, if the organization is implementing a health project, it can seek the support of a medical doctor for a certain number of hours in a day. Organizations can also visit other offices and businesses for getting goods and material donated to them. There could be old computers, books, office furniture etc, which can be used by the NGOs.
