What did Gloucester City Sail need?

Randi helped Gloucester City Sail win over new donors and supporters with a refined 60-second pitch that covers the essential information about their work and includes a request for support.

Why is this project important?

Although we have been in existence for 10 years, we are at the early stage of developing a strategy for seeking local corporate and foundation sponsorship. We have developed some materials about our Youth Outreach Program and the various levels of sponsorship we are seeking, but we have no experience actually approaching prospective sponsors. The Board is willing to help the Fundraising Committee network, but we all need guidance so that we put our best foot forward with a compelling message.

This project will save us $2,397, allowing us to offset transportation costs so that more youth groups can participate in our experiential sails. We work with other non-profits serving young people primarily from low-income neighborhoods.
