  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
Additional Details

We will be celebrating our 40th anniversary next year and are looking for help with storytelling to convey the power of relationships.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have thorough records of all of our relationship history, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a full time staff member with the time, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
