Foellinger Foundation has awarded NeighborLink Fort Wayne a $25,000 Innovative Rapid Grant. This grant will be used to provide video production services to help Allen County 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations tell the stories of how they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with a goal of raising awareness, communicating with key stakeholders, and soliciting the assistance they need most at this time.
NeighborLink will produce 25 videos at no cost to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that are providing direct, immediate relief to Fort Wayne residents on a first come, first served basis. Videos will be developed in partnership with the organization and will be designed to help communicate what???s most important to them right now. Complete details on the types of videos, the production parameters, consulting options, and how to request a video are on our website at https://www.nlfw.org/story/neighboringproductions.
???Fort Wayne???s nonprofit and social service sector is at the front lines responding to needs in tangible, relational, and at times, heroic ways. These organizations have significantly increased needs right now and need to expand their network of support and provide an update on what they???re doing. All while, there are donors and individuals that want to help but aren???t sure how or where. Video-based storytelling is an incredible way for organizations to invite in new supporters and communicate the details of how one can help. Video has transformed NeighborLink over the past few years and we???re wanting to help our peers by offering our services to help do the same for them,??? said Andrew Hoffman, Executive Director, NeighborLink Fort Wayne.
