What did Steffani have to offer?

I've experienced (and practiced) firsthand how fundraising and communications are closely related and must be integrated for a nonprofit organization to maximize its revenue, PR, and impact, and was thus intrigued by an opportunity to support National Black Theatre with its communications efforts. This would be an excellent opportunity to further hone my copywriting skills and develop my freelance writing portfolio. I have five years of experience writing a variety of persuasive fundraising materials including appeal letters, e-newsletters, social media/web copy, press releases and other documents for nonprofit performing arts and media organizations. In addition, I have been responsible for the development and implementation of print and electronic fundraising campaigns.
