Project details

What we need
  • Assessment of current donors, volunteers, beneficiaries and other constituents to pinpoint people who are interested in serving your Organization
  • Informal staff and board interviews to survey potential connections and/or leads
  • A document of up to ten pages that lists potential board members based upon your Organization's data and current audiences
  • Note: The Professional will not be communicating with prospective board members.
Additional details

Currently we are a social enterprise but would like to transition to a 501c3 for our artistic programs and have others support our cause

What we have in place
  • We currently have a list of donor emails, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a list of community partners, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $5,198 , allowing us to enhance our theater programs and employ youth in our neighborhood who are transitional and need a holistic approach to getting out of poverty.

Capacity building and being able to strengthen out network and impact by not doing programming alone or without any reserves
