Supercharge your non-profit with these tools

Whether you need to raise funds, attract volunteers, manage staff, get your phones ringing with press inquiries, or “all of the above” — our “Business Power Tools” software apps & templates make building a non-profit easier by providing the structure you need to keep you focused on your main organizational objectives.

For more than 27 years with 2+ million copies sold, Business Power Tools has been providing entrepreneurs, business owners, and non-profit directors like you with comprehensive and easy-to-use software and templates to fund, build and run your organization.

I have had a dream of developing Promised Youth International, a non-profit dedicated to youth empowerment, transformation and leadership. However, although I attempted several times to complete the proper documentation, I never got it correct. Honestly, I had ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what I was doing. A friend contacted me about these amazing software templates from Business Power Tools. I could not believe how easy these tools made planning and completing the other important projects. The tools literally lead you throughout the process, giving you ideas and lessons on what is needed during each step. What was taking me years to do, took me a few days to fully complete ALL the necessary documentation. Thank you, BusinessPower Tools, for the tools that now make incorporating non-profits extremely easy to learn and do.

1) BizPlanBuilder: Gets the money and resources to fulfill your purpose!

What are the measurable positive impacts you intend and what will be the measurable impact of donations?

You may be thinking… business planning is not for nonprofits, but this has every element of the strategic plan you’ve been looking for. Financial projections and marketing plans are equal to grant budgets and outreach plans.

A comprehensive business action plan gives you the edge with donors who want to see their money doing the most good.

They donate because they want to make a difference and they want you to do good works with the money they give you. Either way donors are “investing” in your organization.


The better organized you are the more donations you’ll attract!

After using these simple tools, you will have clear action plan to share with donors.

Whether you run a non-profit, a not-for-profit, or a for-profit organization, you still need to run an efficient organization! You might not call it profit or that might not be your purpose, but if you want to stop begging for cash and make the difference you want to make, you must be sustainable. And that attracts money!

BizPlanBuilder writes a strategic plan easily and with beautiful results. Its organized system gives you sample plan templates, built-in financial projections, and a proven PowerPoint presentation template.

Once you know your strategies for the next 6 months or 6 years, donors will be compelled to give you the funding you need!

“Your software produces plans that are equivalent to some of the best plans I’ve seen. I have tried using another software, [Business Plan Pro / Live Plan], but was not anywhere near as satisfied with the results.”
Dr. J Goetzow, San Francisco, CA
