Impact statement
This project will save us $8,660 , allowing us to use those funds directly for the children we serve and providing them with food, shelter, clothing, educational materials, and so on.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Personalized feedback and up to 5 coaching sessions with one member of the Organization
  • Document outlining strengths, weaknesses, and suggested next steps and/or resources for the member
Additional Details

As a board member of the Hope Foundation, I am expected to speak on behalf of the organization from time to time and explain its mission, work, and goals. Sometimes this includes speaking one-on-one with community members and potential donors and other times, it means doing presentations in front of a larger audience. I would like to work with a coach who will be able to help me fine-tune the way I speak and convey a message.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have material that I can present on and done some coaching before, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an updated website, newsletters, and other material, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

As a board member, I may be asked to speak on behalf of the organization in the future and being able to express myself better will increase our chances of finding and securing donors and connecting people to our mission and work.
