Impact statement
This project will save us $3,002 , allowing us to support more schools

Project Details

What We Need
  • Designs for a pre-determined number of marketing or communications materials (examples: one-pager/fact sheets, case studies, fundraising collateral, event invitations, annual reports, and pamphlets)
  • Templates with accurate, print-ready specifications
  • Note: This project does not include printing
Additional Details

We are in the process of re-launching the School Culture Initiative (that has a new home outside of United Way) has been in existence for 10 years. As part of this exercise we have already undertaken a brand messaging project, a visual branding project-with logo-and are now ready to translate this into our external (and internal) marketing and communications material. We will be needing templates for one-pagers, brochures, price lists, powerpoint template, business cards, e-mail signatures etc..

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have branding guidelines and a new logo, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a marketing director who is dedicated to the project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This is necessary for us to re-launch our work and have a strong market presence. We work with schools all over NJ (and increasingly farther afield) to help them become places that are respectful, safe, inspiring and are positive places for all.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

About The Org

Our Mission

United Way of Northern New Jersey is a thriving regional entity serving the communities of its founding members. With a renewed purpose, all of our work to build stronger northern New Jersey communities is focused on improving life for ALICE - our neighbors who are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. These nearly 890,000 New Jersey households - and a quarter of households in our region - are working, but are still unable to afford the basic necessities of housing, food, child care, health care, and transportation.

When ALICE suffers and is forced to make difficult choices, we all face serious consequences. United Way is working to shine a light on this population that is so critical to the stability of our communities. We are looking beyond temporary fixes to find solutions that result in long-term, sustainable change for all individuals and families. Our focus on three areas - Education, Income, and Health - helps ALICE at three key points - now, in the near term, and with an eye to a better and more stable future.
