SILVER SPRING, Md.--()--With any new year comes a renewed focus on being better. For organizations, it’s a time to take a new look at old challenges, and recommit to missions with a fresh perspective – if only that recommitment came along with more time, more resources, and a larger budget.
“Through the it Award, we recognize the good works of one nonprofit each year by collaborating with them to strengthen their communications – internal, external, or both – in creative ways.”
For one special nonprofit, that will, in fact, be the case.
Starting today, C.Fox Communications is accepting applications for its third annual inspired thought Award (the it Award): up to $30,000 worth of pro bono public relations services for the most worthy applicant. Services offered through the award can include: strategy, writing/messaging, media relations, branding, and social media.
“At C.Fox we know that there are a vast number of organizations that do incredible work, but whose limited budgets prevent them from taking their story to the next level,” said Carrie Fox, President of C.Fox Communications. “Through the it Award, we recognize the good works of one nonprofit each year by collaborating with them to strengthen their communications – internal, external, or both – in creative ways.”
To win the 2012 it Award, a nonprofit must demonstrate a mission-driven nature to its work and a particular need for public relations services.
“Not only does the award give the winning nonprofit the opportunity to work with our creative and talented staff, it also allows our agency an opportunity to stay centered on our purpose, which is to serve mission-driven organizations with smart approaches to communications challenges,” said Fox.
The application for the it Award along with completion instructions and submission information can be found at www.cfoxcommunications.com/probono. All United States-based nonprofits are eligible to apply. The deadline for submissions is February 29, 2012 and there is no entry fee. The organization who wins the it Award will have the opportunity to redeem services between April and December of 2012. The winner will be announced on April 2, 2012.
