Tell us your story!
Independent Sector is strengthened by our members and their stories of
impact and change. In this section, we will share stories that give
people in the nonprofit and
philanthropic community an opportunity to be inspired, learn from each
other, and find new ways to collaborate and innovate.
Send your stories to email@example.com
. As you prepare them, please follow these guidelines:
- Focus on Impact -- This is an opportunity to showcase how your organization is improving lives and communities, and that is much easier to do if you concentrate on how you make a difference. Provide a little background about the
situation. Explain the problem or need you're addressing, and say a
little about the population with which you're working. Submissions should be 150 words or less.
Include two or three high-resolution photos if possible. If you have a short video that helps demonstrate your impact, send us that as well.
- While we reserve
the right to edit any submission for language and length, we hope to
keep your words intact as much as possible, and we are less likely to
make changes if your item is tightly written.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, or on the featured member area in general, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or call us at 202-467-6171. Thank you for sharing your successes with visitors to our website. We look forward to compiling a great list that demonstrates how much our members contribute to communities across the country and around the world.
