Since 1993, the WWPR pro bono committee has worked with 501(c) 3 organizations that give back to women and children in the DC metro community. For the past three years, the committee partnered with Bright Beginnings, Inc. (BBI), which assists homeless infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.
“The pro bono services offered by WWPR were extremely valuable to Bright Beginnings. WWPR provided guidance, when drafting communications and marketing literature, revamping a press list, or sending media alerts,” said Dr. Marla M. Dean, Executive Director/CEO of BBI.
WWPR’s goal is to provide professional development and networking opportunities for PR practitioners in the Washington, DC metro area who are women. That’s why its more than 350 members are passionate about amplifying other local organizations whose missions also support women.
It’s this passion that drove the committee in 2016 to jump on opportunities to help BBI secure news coverage of its 25th anniversary and opening of a new center in Ward 8, launch its #BrightFuturesatBBI social media campaign and brainstorm concepts for a new promotional video.
Previous WWPR pro bono clients include the Financial Literacy Organization for Women & Girls, the Children’s Law Center, DC Rape Crisis Center, Safe Shores–the DC Children’s Advocacy Center, and Thrive DC.
Let the WWPR pro bono committee members put their passion to work for your organization, too! Apply for the 2018 and 2019 term, and become the next WWPR Pro Bono Client. The deadline is August 7, 2017. Please note: the deadline has been extended to midnight August 7 to allow interested applicants more time to submit the required materials.
