Thank You, CFSC, PF, NMNM and R&R
In 2017, PRWC was one of four organizations, out of nearly 100, chosen to participate in the Margin & Mission Ignition Earned Income Initiative. This program, funded by the Patterson Foundation, is a social enterprise that helps nonprofits diversify revenue, expand impact, and build a lasting future through entrepreneurship, innovation, and business strategy. It offers a fresh approach to planning, training, implementation, and speaking through a wide array of offerings designed to help grow the mission and financial bottom lines of non-profit organizations. Our two year process will follow a path consisting of planning, training, implementation and monitoring of our earned income venture. With the help of NMNM, we have created a professional business plan to launch an online gift shop to capitalize on the success of our brick and mortar store at the Center. We were coached by a professional fundraiser to advise us how to best reach our start-up capital goal of $70,000. Our eagerness to learn and passion for our project led us to raise over and above our goal, over $95,000! During the implementation process, the culture of our Center went through many positive changes including re-branding, securing our intellectual property and updating our website. The new sites launched on May 16th, 2018 and will help ensure the future financial success and continuation of our mission for years to come. Special thanks to Michael Oxman, Larry Clark, Michael Corley and Josephine Eisenberg for making our success possible and for believing in us!
Love our new website? We do! And how about the new logo? Oh yeah!
Thanks to the ingenuity and creativity of the artists and techies at Rough and Ready Media we have brought our little wildlife center into the 21st century. Their level of professionalism while working on a tight time line has produced a product that will carry us far into the future. Michele Greene and her staff have our thanks and admiration for their quality of work and dedication. Please check out their site if you are in need of a new website, logo, social media management, online marketing or content writing. We HIGHLY recommend them to all our friends!
