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

A look back at what has been accomplished over the past 18 months since staff was brought on to be shared in a newsletter with regional funders and nonprofits.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have published research, shared feedback, and written history, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have key messaging document, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to support more projects that strengthen the capacity of nonprofits across our 9 county region, in turn strengthening our communities.

We aim to be transparent in all we do and want to share with nonprofits, especially those who have taken their time to provide feedback and ideas, what we have done and where we are going. This will also provide an opportunity for feedback and co-creation. Additionally, we aim to be ambassadors of capacity building to funders across the region and this information will help tell the story of impact.
