Putting Faces with Names; Details with Concepts

The Endowment is a very small organization with only five full-time employees augmented by one or two university interns.  As one might guess given the breadth of our work, our three program leads spend a great deal of time on the road.  Those visits to the field and related travel afford the opportunity for many to get to know our team members personally.

Using Technology to Expand Outreach
With the help of our “below 30 team” – read: interns—we’ve begun adding brief videos to our set of communication tools.  We know that this is important not only for a younger video generation but also to allow others with interest to see and hear from our team at least in a virtual way.

Adding Depth and Background to the Annual Report
The Endowment, an organization that operates on a calendar year for its fiscal/tax purposes, works very hard to get our annual report on the street as quickly as possible each year.  The latest was no exception.  Our 2011Annual Report was out-the-door and on our website before the end of February.  We think that’s fast by any measure.

In the release that accompanied our report, we committed to adding some depth and background with video links.  While we have several planned over coming weeks, we’ve posted the first of those already.  Take a look and let us know what you think.
