When the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation secured a critical partnership that would expand shelter space and resources for those experiencing homelessness, the nonprofit knew it needed help getting the word out. It turned to media relations agency Blue Door Consulting for ideas that would drive local awareness.
The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation needed to communicate its new partnership with COTS and Father Carr’s Place 2B internally and externally. Blue Door Consulting, as its public relations company, moved quickly to raise awareness at both levels. Our media consultants created and distributed a compelling news release, using critical data, facts and quotes to attract media attention. An email to donors, website landing page and video helped support the media campaign, educating educate donors and community members about the project.
To achieve optimal awareness, the Community Foundation’s PR campaign needed to go a step further – with a media event to generate interest and enthusiasm for the partnership. Blue Door Consulting media consultants provided on-site assistance to reporters covering the event, connecting them with community contacts and information while simultaneously livestreaming the event to air on the Community Foundation’s social media channels.
