Impact statement
This project will save us $3,607 , allowing us to improve our hiking trails so more families can enjoy nature.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Customized and professionally designed graphic(s)
  • Training on how to create and customize graphics using (free) design tools/apps
Additional Details

Every year Weantinoge participates in a 36-hour online give-a-thon called Give Local. It's like a local version of Giving Tuesday that the Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF) organizes and contributes some matching funds to donations received in this window.
It's a great concept, but our donors are confused about where and how to donate because the gifts have to be made through CCF's page.
We'd like help creating social media content about Give Local as well as our normal work.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Examples from 2018, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have beautiful photos of nature and people enjoying nature, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Improving the images we use on social media for this special online give-a-thon (Give Local 2019) will increase the amount of money we can raise in a short amount of time.
