Thank you so much for all the help you have given BeatSarcoma in the past couple of years - we are off to a great start and are super excited about the future. We are getting ready for the Sarcoma Cup 2009 - http://www.beatsarcoma.org/Sarcoma_Cup.html -
This could be a great tool for volunteers who may consider working with us in the future, donors and sponsors who will consider how responsibly we have treated the money and resources they entrusted us with - as well as research institutions who may approach us in the future with promising projects.
For some of you, this is a reminder - feel free to circulate this among anyone who has come to know our organization. Full context below.
On behalf of our entire organization, I thank you.
If you don’t yet have any reviews, there is still time to take advantage of this completely FREE opportunity! (See which cancer fighting nonprofits are in the lead right now at www.greatnonprofits.org/cancer.)
Make your work visible to potential supporters and donors. Ask your volunteers, clients, donors, and board members to post reviews about their experiences with you!
Whether you are a local organization or a national one, you can gain visibility by participating in the 2009 Cancer Fighters Awards. This opportunity is completely FREE of charge.
The nonprofits with the most positive reviews within their size category – small (less than $250K in budget), medium ($250K – $1M) or large (more than $1M) – or their geographic region, posted by July 31, 2009 will be featured on GreatNonprofits, Planet Cancer, AND on Guidestar.org, the premier site for philanthropic research. All reviews will also appear on your GuideStar nonprofit report.
You can also later use these reviews in your marketing, fundraising, and brochures!
This is an opportunity for you to engage your stakeholders – clients, volunteers, board members, donors and others. They can share their experiences with one another and the larger public.
And individuals who participate have a chance to win great wellness prizes such as a free copy of "Everything Changes: The Insider's Guide to Cancer in Your 20s and 30s" by Kairol Rosenthal, free milk for a year from Organic Valley Farms, delicious baked goods from Dancing Deer Baking Co., spa packages from Osmosis Day Spa and Sanctuary, hotel stays from Joie de Vivre Hotels, and more!
Gain visibility and take this opportunity to engage your community.
