Lansie Sylvia is now the director of engagement at Here’s My Chance, a “creative agency for good” that designs campaigns, builds communities, and promotes causes for a wide variety of nonprofits and social enterprises.
Sylvia will be leading HMC’s strategic positioning process, revitalizing external communications, building new community partnerships, and commanding an army of interns.
“This position at HMC is a wonderful combination of working on high-level, cutting edge digital strategy, as well as working one-on-one with start-up clients to build capabilities at whichever level they are comfortable with,” Sylvia said.
“I believe that all nonprofits and social enterprises – from the tiniest grassroots campaigns to the largest CSR initiatives – deserve high-quality, affordable creative services,” she added.
She’s also the driving force behind Philly Give & Get, the popular charity auction that matches talented Philadelphians to the highest bidder. Philly Give & Get wrapped up its second event in October, raising over $12,000 for their charity partners.
Sylvia’s past positions include director of communications for the EHL Consulting Group and director of development for the Philadelphia Film Society. She was recognized as a 2013 Social Impact Fellow by the University of Pennsylvania and awarded third place at the 2013 Mobilize.org ReGenerate Philly Summit for her work as the founder of Philly Give & Get.
“HMC had been looking for someone with Lansie’s skills for a while. One with a strong and foundational understanding of fundraising, donor cultivation, communications and community building, but coupled by an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Dave Gloss, CEO of HMC.-30-
