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.
  • Note: This project is not intended to support your general content planning or marketing but there are several projects in our Marketing & Communications category which are a good fit!
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a well-established website with stories of our work, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time to put together additional resources, pictures, etc, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to offer additional professional development directly to teachers.

There has been a recent public-policy shift toward rural places. Rural Aspirations has been working effectively and efficiently in this space for the past 7 years, with limited capacity to tell our own story. It's time for us to learn how to tell our story and most importantly the stories of our schools and communities.
