What did @ Wit's End need?

Princeton helped @ Wit's End gain a thorough understanding of the community and beneficiaries they serve, and how similar organizations and programs are working.

Why is this project important?

@Wit’s End is in its very nascent stages; so big questions are looming large. I am not sure how we fit into the mental health landscape. I want a solid understanding of the need for this service and the impact it will have on lives. This market analysis will arm me with the tools to start looking for funding via investors, donors and/or grants.

This project will save us $10,948, allowing us to aid 4000000 parents of children with mental illness.

Hello,

I am the coordinator for Princeton University Volunteer Consulting Initiative which is a student group that is dedicated to providing Pro-bono Consulting advise to Non-Profits and For-Profit Organizations. In the past, we have worked with over 25 NPO Organizations on project topics such as marketing, branding and fundraising strategy.

Our project deliverable have received strong reviews from all our clients. In terms of group structure, we are comprised of PhD Graduate students from Princeton University who are interested in applying our analytical skills to issues that are faced by non-profit organizations.

If you contact us at puvci@princeton.edu we would be able to provide sample projects that we have worked on for some NPOs. This will provide you with a better understanding of the quality of our work.

What did they have to say?

I NEVER expected to have a team of Princeton PhD candidates work on my project. The time, passion, knowledge and effort they put into @Wit's End exceeded my wildest dreams. I have a product I can share with Fortune 500 companies. Thank you Vibha, Heather, Charles and Brian. A million thank yous.

About @ Wit's End

@Wit’s End is an online platform providing targeted resources for people who love someone with mental illness and have run out of ways to help.

There are 4,000,000 mentally ill children in the US, which means there are 4,000,000 moms who feel as lost and alone as our founder Tricia.
Fun Fact

Fun Fact

I made my kids watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail when they were 5 and 6. It has shaped their sense of humor ever since. I am hoping it isn't what scarred them... So, as mental illness is serious, we don't take ourselves too seriously at all.

This is the 1st project posted by @ Wit's End.
