Project Overview

We are in search of a communicator that knows how to make connections. Our organization is fairly new and we need corporate partnerships/sponsorships. We want to connect with companies that understand the importance of literacy. Companies that understand that supporting struggling readers is advantageous to our community and it’s growth. We are looking for someone with strong public relations skills to make these connections for us. This person will need to be able to communicate the mission, vision, needs, and goals of our organization; identify, develop and maintain relationships with potential business partners; actively prospect and network to obtain business partners; help create a sponsorship plan for our organization.
Fundamenta Reading Center is committed to making reading instruction accessible to all, regardless of family income. To do this we need financial support. We need funding to grow our organization, train volunteers, serve students, pay staff, cover overhead, etc. This is where we need your help. We need the expertise of someone who has experience working with corporate sponsorships and nonprofit donations. We are a new organization operating with a one woman staff, and are grateful that organizations like Taproot exist. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with an expert in this area who can help us communicate our message while securing and engaging sponsors.
Fundamenta Reading Center has launched and is up and running, We’ve had minimal donations and we are currently seeking grants. We are ready to put funds to use.
