NO SHOWS on install dates from contractors who are GETTING PAID to do the work

I want to be as professional as possible. Don’t want to come off as being bitter. When you have a non-profit organization and it depends on donations to function we can’t have people or corporations not following through on pledges.

NO SHOWS on install dates from contractors who are GETTING PAID to do the work.

Example:  I was WXYZ’s Person Of The Week in July. They asked if I wanted something done right away what would it be. I said windows on the community center to make it look more inviting and professional. The same night it aired we got a call asking if we had anybody willing to donate for the windows. An amount was pledged and also a company that could do the work. An appointment for measurements was scheduled and kept. An install date (2 and ½ weeks) was scheduled. NO WINDOWS. After calls from me to company, another meeting was scheduled. New install date October 9th 2013. Came and passed NO WINDOWS. Phone calls and emails have gone unanswered. We had some funds to go towards the windows from other donors and this information was told to the first donor reducing her pledged amount. What are Non-Profits to do in a situation like this?
