Dear Clients, Friends, and Partners,
If there’s one thing this tumultuous year has taught us, it’s that those of us who are working to do good in the world are going to have to work harder than ever in 2017 – harder to be heard, harder to be understood, harder to make sure organizations that are making a real difference in people’s lives are getting the resources they need to keep doing it, doing more of it, doing it better.
It’s been a real pleasure telling all of your stories in 2016, and we promise to keep telling them as well as we can next year and beyond.
All the best,
David and the rest of the CitizenRacecar team
Quick! What does your organization do?… it’s not such an easy question to answer. Luckily, we’re here to help. David will be giving his presentation “Elevating Your Pitch: Making the Case for Your Cause, Quickly” twice more this year – first at the Foundation Center’s Annual Open House on November 10th, and again on November 16th at AFP Weschester’s Annual Philanthropy Day.
Spring / Summer 2016
It’s never been easier for nonprofit organizations to produce their own media, but there’s also never been more competition for the eyes and ears of your audience. So how to do it well? David presented the talk “Creating Content that Connects” at the Foundation Center – some thoughts and tips on standing apart and rising above.
David was proud to deliver a masterclass on effective nonprofit communications to the fellows at the Ben Appelbaum Foundation.
Kerry was as enthusiastic as ever to present at NYN FundCon 2016, where David also spoke on the panel “A Fundraising Mindset: The Importance of Focused, Goal-Driven Thinking” (his remarks start around 45:26).
The first and most basic form of institutional communication is the elevator pitch – what do you do, and why should people care? It’s not always so easy to put that in a way that’s succinct and engaging. But we’re here to help! David presented the program “Elevating Your Pitch: Making the Case for your Cause, Quickly” at the Foundation Center, New York.
We’re happy to be sponsoring the New Year’s cocktail reception at the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce. Come raise a glass with us on Thursday!
As 2015 draws to a close, we want to say how lovely it’s been to collaborate with so many of you. Sharing your excellent and important work with the world is our mission and our pleasure, and we can’t wait to do more of the same in 2016.
And so God rest ye, merry clientele, let nothing you dismay; Happy Hannukah (belated), Merry Christmas, blessings abound in your Yuletide revelry, may the first fruits of Kwanzaa be a harvest of prosperity and wisdom, and a very Happy New Year from David and the rest of the team at CitizenRacecar
