Project Details

What We Need
  • A compelling narrative, or set of stories
  • Persuasive copy that can be used in appeals to donors, annual reports, grant applications, and media relations
  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have subjects lined up to interview, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a vision for the purpose of our stories, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to place AmeriCorps members in service to support students in under-resourced schools.

Through this project we will be able to show our community and our stakeholders the impact of our work in a more relatable and intimate way. It is important to share the stories of our students, our communities and our work so that the challenges and inequities they face are recognized and the work is supported to help them succeed, despite those challenges.
