In contrast to a business that aims to make a profit for its owners, a non-profit institution is a legal entity that is organized and administered for a collective, public, or social benefit.

The non-distribution limitation applies to non-profits that any surplus funds must be invested in the organization’s mission rather than distributed to private parties.

How Does the Fund Help in Providing a Better and Safer Environment

According to Robey, the number of people contacting for services and the number of situations they attend in the community has increased dramatically. HAVEN has been awarded a grant from the “Neighbourhood Builders” banks, which will provide $200,000 in unrestricted money for the next two years.

HAVEN will be able to better serve the more than 30,000 people they serve each year thanks to the award. It will not only assist, but it will also supply much-needed resources to staff.

It also provides training and leadership development for the CEO and emerging leaders inside the firm, ensuring that they have the tools and skills necessary to properly implement the strategy.

The Banks’ Say

The Michigan President of the Bank of America, Matt Elliot said that they are looking for an organization that has a vast impact and a track record but also has a very clear idea of ​​what it is going to do with the funding, and HAVEN, in his opinion, is just doing an amazing job.

Not only HAVEN but the other nonprofit organizations also have a solid plan as to where to invest the funding provided by the banks. 

The financial assistance provided by the Bank of America to the Non-Profit Organizations of the Detroit Area has proved to be a valuable asset in the development of not only the organizations but their programs for the people of the Country.
