Charitable Words Scholars, Starfire Council Partner For “Story Soiree”
For the second year, Charitable Words Scholars have assisted The Starfire Council in marketing, event publications and multimedia graphics for its Annual Celebration event.
Starfire Council is a Greater Cincinnati nonprofit “focused on decreasing the social isolation felt by people with developmental disabilities.”
The event brought over 300 people who participated in watching video stories and Starfire was able to raise $40,000 through sponsorship and donations.
The summer campaign enabled Starfire to raise $40,000 in sponsorships and $23,500 the day of the event, also gaining a new audience of volunteers and donors to reach out to through their registration for the event on Eventbrite. This was the first year Starfire’s Annual Celebration was considered a major organization fundraiser and raised $58,500 more than last year’s event,” Almendinger said.
Bottom line: Our partnership has brought in more than $100,000 for Starfire – and many friends and supporters. What Starfire does for its community is important. Thank you for your support.
AN INSPIRING STORY FROM STARFIRE’S STORY SOIREE:
Here’s an uplifting example of a Starfire success story. Pictured are Starfire community builder Doug Goering and Regina Carswell-Russo, Chief of Communications at the Contemporary Arts Center. Doug was recently hired on in the communications department at the CAC. He has started a video series of the exhibits.
Please take a moment to view Doug’s video:
Best wishes to Starfire, Doug and all those engaged and involved with this important work.
Onward to next year!
ABOUT CHARITABLE WORDS SCHOLARS:
Since 2012, Charitable Words has connected more than 30 nonprofits with 70 students and recent graduates and hundreds of hours of pro bono engagement by our network of volunteer advisors. Their impact has been evident. Yet to be measured: The lifelong impact of purposeful scholarship, internship and special assignment experiences on their personal growth, and how much they will give back to their communities over time.
The Scholars’ superb work has been supported by other resources available to our nonprofit partners:
“On social media, Starfire saw a 23% increase in our reach over the span of three weeks, leading to a reach of 4,478 people the day of the event. This spike in attention on our social media has meant greater outreach and messaging, which leads to more donations and support from the community. We are grateful for what Charitable Words can do for nonprofit organizations to extend our capacity for impact by networking us with our city’s finest media talent and resources.”
