Compass — specifically, the Greater Philadelphia branch of a national organization that connects business pros to nonprofits looking for pro bono help — is gearing up for its 2018-2019 cycle. (See last year’s grantees here.)
Nonprofits in need of consulting support for projects relating to …
- Board development
- Funding strategy
- Strategic partnerships
- Strategic alignment
- And, for the first time, strategic marketing
… should keep an eye out for that application on Compass’ website on April 13. (You’ll have until June 8 to complete it, so no rush.)
Why the addition of strategic marketing?
“Over the past five years, we frequently have received specific requests for projects to develop a marketing strategy and we have also noticed that marketing strategy is a key element of some of the deliverables for our other projects,” Philadelphia Executive Director Beth Dahle wrote in an email. “All Compass projects will continue to be strategic, though. Compass is not a creative shop, we will not re-brand or create logos or collateral.”
Another, bigger change: Compass is expanding its services to Camden County to offer capacity-building support to nonprofits there.
Eligible nonprofits must have at least three paid staffers and budgets of at least $750,000 and benefit communities in Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks and Camden counties.
