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.
Additional Details

We need a strong narrative to help primarily with grant writing. We are a young company, and the community doesn't know about us. We want a compelling narrative or group of stories to use in donor appeals and annual reports as well as in grant applications. This narrative will also help with marketing KNAC, getting tenants, showing the community and potential donors/grant givers what sets us apart; our uniqueness.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have supporting documents about the company, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have foundation and grant applications, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to use that money toward building renovations, application fees and marketing costs for finding new tenants and raising awareness about our organization.

We are a young company and our Board is passionate and hardworking but we all have other jobs/commitments in our lives so having the help of quality volunteers will help us create our narrative more quickly which will help us raise more money in a more timely fashion.
