[COMMENTARY] Leaving Politics Aside and Focusing on Charitable Organizations

Politics and politicians are always hot topics. Everyone with an opinion loves to impart their views, their ideas, and their views onto others. However, recently politics seems to be even more prevalent when talking about charitable organizations. A lot of people get their wires crossed and mishear information (which they then spread onto others). Through word of mouth charitable organizations, or nonprofit organizations can get tangled up in a sticky web that is hard to leave. Leaving politics out of charities and letting politicians focus on their roles and responsibilities is what must now begin to happen.

Why Politics Should Not Be Present in Charitable Activities

Charities and nonprofit organizations are working to make a difference. This difference can often not be seen or even heard if politics or politicians are involved. When politics get involved in the work of others, the focus gets shifted, and so does attention and interest. Politics will divert attention away from what really matters and what is important, and this is not always beneficial, especially when concerning nonprofit or charitable organizations. When politics is not present in a charity or nonprofit, then the attention and focus can be placed solely where it is needed, and this is on helping those in need.

Charities and Nonprofit Organizations Can and Will Make a Difference

There are a lot of charities and nonprofit organizations that make a difference and that make positive change. For example, the American Red Cross that has been helping many Americans both at home and abroad for many years. Without political input, charities and nonprofit organizations can focus on their goals and their aims, and they can shift their efforts to where they are needed. When charities and nonprofit organizations are given the space they need, changes can and will happen. However, if they are bound, or if they are restricted without good reason, then change will not happen, and positive improvements will not be seen.

Supporting Charities and Nonprofit Organizations

When you take a step back from overcomplicating politics, you see that there are lots of charities and nonprofit organizations that are in need of assistance and help. Of course, monetary assistance is always needed, but sometimes so too is physical assistance. If a charity or organization has been linked or even affiliated with a political party or view (even if only accidentally), then the effect and the repercussions can be huge, and in some cases, devastating. When charities or organizations lose the support, they need and value, they struggle to help those who need it the most. To ensure that this does not happen, they have to invest more heavily in brand management (and, of course, this is not what they want to be focusing on). 

Keeping politics aside and away from nonprofit organizations and from those charities that are trying to make a difference and an impact is crucial. This separation is something that everyone needs to actively ensure happens to ensure that good and positive work can be carried on in the future.
