Impact statement

Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining feedback on pitch delivery with suggested next steps and/or resources
  • A script for a 1-minute verbal pitch that communicates your Organization's mission, work, and why people should care
Additional Details

I regularly speak about our organization for fundraising and membership recruitment. My current 'elevator speech' is stale. I would like help honing my organization's message to be more engaging and inspiring.

What We Have In Place
  • Organizatinal materials including mission statement, tag lines.
    Marketing materials including brochures. fundraising appeal letters and one pagers.
How This Will Help

My project request is important because we are growing and my current 'elevator speech' needs to address the changes in our organization as well as our impact.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
