School and a Church

IMAGINE THE POTENTIAL

Melaleuca has entered an exciting era—the era of the Charitable Organization Program. While Melaleuca has had an ongoing relationship with charitable organizations for many years, in the last two years we have seen a tremendous amount of interest in helping charitable organizations enhance the lives of those they touch by helping people reach their goals. The process has been both insightful and rewarding. Many organizations are experiencing success by participating in the Melaleuca Charitable Organization Program. One example is Executive Director VI Myrtice and Kevin
Smith.

Myrtice and Kevin Smith had a connection with Charitable Organizations from day one. They were ministers long before enrolling with Melaleuca.

Myrtice says, “We knew in order to meet our full potential we had to lead by example. So, the first charitable organization we enrolled was our personal ministry. Our outreach ministry actually houses men who are getting out of prison. We help them get on their feet, get jobs, and get back into everyday life.”

Since that first enrollment, Myrtice and Kevin’s organization has grown to include dozens of charitable organizations, all reaping the benefits of being part of the Melaleuca Program. Collectively, the charitable organizations and their associated leaders in Myrtice and Kevin’s group received commissions approaching $150,000 in March alone! Imagine what those organizations can accomplish with this increase in funding?

“When approaching charitable organizations, you have to talk to whoever would be the ultimate decision maker,” Myrtice says. “And that’s sometimes tricky, but it saves time and effort. In churches, it’s often the Pastor, but not always. In other organizations it’s the director or even a committee.”

Kevin’s and Myrtice’s Charitable Organization qualifies for the monthly $1,000 Charitable Organization Car Bonus! Melaleuca is now paying for a van to help their ministry!

APPROACHING A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION

 

Man writing in a planner

When you initially approach a charitable organization, your only goal should be to set an appointment. You need to know how the organization is funded, you need to know who can say “yes,”

What is the best approach to use with charitable organizations?
No one approach works better than another. Do your homework and know the background of the charitable organization you are approaching. The more you know about them the better.

Who would I want to speak with about the Charitable Program when I am trying to get an Organization interested?
You need to speak with your contact at the charitable organization. Make sure the organization knows you and you know them. You need to have established your credibility before presenting the opportunity to them. Remember you may have only one chance to present this program.

Should I create an open position for the charitable organization before I enroll them?
This is a good option for charitable organizations that are waiting on their IRS Determination Letter. It is also great for the skeptics. If you have presented to a charitable organization and they are not sure whether they want to participate, get permission to create the open position. At that point start creating the customer base beneath that open position. This will give you six months to prove that the program can work for the organization.
