TV Extra: Ranking your own success as non profit


TV Extra: Ranking your own success as non profit

Catie’s Closet co-founder Mickey Cockrell rates the success of Catie’s Closet as a non-profit organization and talks about the support there is for social entrepreneurship, including EforAll and MassChallenge.

Here are some great resources for non-profits:

Grant writing assistance: Our mission is to connect you with fundraising strategies for your school or non profit, so you can continue to make a positive impact in the world.

Choosing the right fundraising: Choosing the right fundraising for non profit organizations depends a lot on the size of your group, the area you are in, how much money you need to raise and how much participation from a team you have.

Affinity fundraising: Every school, church, and charity should be using the tried and true methods of raising money: individual giving, events, direct mail, grants, etc. But what happens when those fundraising sources run dry?

The 2014 MassChallenge Awards featured some of the biggest entrepreneurs from around the world. In attendance were Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Cascade Communications Founder Desh Deshpande. Perhaps the most inspiring entrepreneur of the evening was EforAll Accelerator Alumna Mickey Cockrell of Catie’s Closet. Her Dracut-based venture, which provides clothing and basic necessities to students living in poverty, was awarded as a $100K grand prize. Out of 128 finalists who took part in the largest startup accelerator in the world, only four (including Mickey) were awarded the prizes. In dramatic fashion, Mickey was the very last entrepreneur to be called up for an award. As soon as her name was called, EforAll staff, mentors, and fellow accelerator finalists in attendance screamed in excitement.
