What did Family Engagement Institute need?

Amy helped Family Engagement Institute enhance their annual reports, grant applications, and other marketing materials with compelling narratives about their organization’s mission, activities, and achievements.

Why is this project important?

The families we serve frequently describe our profound impact on their lives. As a four-year old organization who wants to expand its funding base, it's essential that we be able to communicate succinct, powerful stories that not only highlight our work, but our purpose, so that we can secure funds to enable our organization to close the opportunity divide and ensure the success and well being of low income students in our community.

This project will save us $2,397, allowing us to provide classroom supplies for 120 students who have had no preschool experience through our Stretch to Kindergarten program.

My desire to make the world a better and more interesting place—and to help other folks do the same—drives my work. Luckily for me, that work is most often finding and telling compelling stories, which is something I really get a kick out of doing.

I have 15+ years of experience in analytical reading and writing, editing, curriculum design, and teaching at the college level and high school level. I also have experience as a copy editor, working on a range of materials from software manuals to academic journals. I've done some grant-writing and branding for local nonprofits and through skills-based volunteering.

Fun Fact

Fun Fact

In an effort to promote a healthier workplace, we have been known to pop in an Instant Recess DVD and for ten minutes, attempt some hip hop footwork, bust out some reggae moves, or follow traditional Filipino dance steps. It's not a pretty picture, but we're usually laughing!

This is the 1st project posted by Family Engagement Institute.
