Pit Bull Synergy chooses to support other organizations. Because when rescues collaborate, support one another, work together and share ideas, we are stronger as organizations and as a community. We have created a Pit Bull Rescue Group on Facebook. Open to anyone, but it’s aimed at those involved with rescue. Together, we can encourage one another, share ideas, get help, learn, and come away better than we were before. Every day a new organization is born. And every day someone is trying to understand their way through it.
People are conditioned to be competitive their entire lives. And that doesn’t change when they start an organization. Rescue is hardly immune from the desire to compete for the perception of being better than others. From fundraising to how to run an organization , there is a lot of competition. When you manage a nonprofit, getting pulled into a scarcity mindset is tempting. Anxiously hoarding ideas and initiatives because you’re afraid there are not enough donors or dollars to go around. It’s certainly an understandable way of thinking.
People are also opinionated, and we all believe that our way is the right way. Therefore anyone else not doing it our way is doing it wrong. This mindset breeds competition to try and outdo those doing things differently. Demonstrating a superiority that our way is the right way. This sometimes leads to inherently negative behavior that blinds us to the fact that we are all ultimately pursuing the same goal. Existing organizations can help newer organizations with communication, sharing their successes and failures. Hence being open to new organizations rather than being competitive with them.
Everyone has their niche, and every group has something they excel at. Where other groups may struggle in that area. Imagine just for a moment how much more we could accomplish if we sought to raise each other up rather than tear each other down. Although we might compete for certain funds, volunteers, or supporters in some ways, we are still stronger when we work together.
Pit Bull Synergy supports other nonprofit organizations because it is the right thing to do. Other organizations inspire us and help open our minds to thinking about things in new ways. At the end of the day, the bottom line is that we all want the same thing: a better world for pit bulls.
