Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Your organization is invited to participate in the "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" campaign.
Now in its second year, this initiative will be promoted during the International Festival of Arts & Ideas when representatives from New Haven's nonprofits will get the word out about the value of nonprofit to our community through distribution of "impact fact cards" and other fun activities. If you participated last year, your "impact fact card" will be used again.
To add your organization
to the fact cards distributed at this year's Festival (only if you did NOT participate last year, because we are still using those cards) go to this link
Visit 2009 GNHNP Impact Cards to see last year's impact cards here
You do not need to attend the Box City or concerts to participate, but we ask each organization provide at least two volunteers over the course of each weekend to help with the campaign. Deadline for submission of your organization's fact card is 5pm on Friday, May 21.
Here's How it Works:
Representatives from area nonprofits will dispense "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" stickers as well as "Impact Fact Trading Cards" during two weekends of the Arts & Ideas Festival.
Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13 from 12:00 - 5:00pm: "Box City," 900 Chapel Street, New Haven.
Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20 from 5:00 - 7:00pm: during concerts on the Green.
Volunteers will encourage people to trade cards and complete a crossword puzzle educating them about the great diversity of work and impact of Greater New Haven nonprofits. There will be prizes to encourage people to complete the crossword puzzle.
Our hope is that the stickers, cards, and crossword puzzle will inspire people to talk about the incredible value and importance of nonprofit organizations to the New Haven community, creating a collective "buzz" that will build support for all of our work.
