Non-profits to receive promotional recommendations from PR students

December 6 2006

Non-profits from throughout the Wabash Valley will receive recommendations on how best to promote their organizations when they gather for a reception this Friday, Dec. 8, at 3:30 p.m. on Indiana State University?s campus in HMSU Dede III activity center.

For their Campaign Planning class in the public relations program, ISU communications majors studied not-for-profits and their needs, and produced public relations campaigns to fulfill them. The students created materials the not-for-profits would need to carry out the campaigns, along with instructions on when to implement each piece. Funding for promotional materials was provided through a Liberal Learning in Action mini-grant awarded through the Center for Public Service and Community Engagement.

The students presented their findings and strategies to the organizations last week; the comprehensive campaign plans, however, will be distributed to the participating non-profits on Friday.

The not-for-profit clients include: the C.A.N.D.L.E.S. Holocaust Museum, Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra, Terre Haute Community Theater, ISU?s Honors Program, the Spay Neuter League of Terre Haute and the ISU Foundation Department.

Media are welcome.
