Occasionally I volunteer to write and design money-raising appeals for nonprofit organizations that might otherwise do it less effectively on their own — or hire outsiders at fees that cut into their take substantially.
These efforts can be direct mail or e-mail, print ads or online campaigns. And they are provided in a way that teaches how to create “letters that change lives” so pro bono clients will not need my skills more than once.
If I can contribute to your organization in this way, please contact me — understanding these are limited, time-available projects developed under your direction.
I am happy to assist all kinds of groups, located anywhere in the United States, but my bias favors local over national, small over large, apolitical over partisan, and direct over umbrella charities.
The following links are regrettable, all-too-frequent reminders of why this work is necessary.
