Securing Our Future: Project 16:49 - 2014-15 LDA Collaborative Project Presentation


Published on

Project:Update the look and information on Project 16:49 marketing materials (website, brochures and assorted print materials) and develop an annual fundraiser that will assist in the creation of a future home for boys.
Members: Erin Betley, Matthew Bosen, Tammy Kolovitz, Adam Loris
Description: After our group agreed to choose a project that helped children, we visited the Robin House and got a feel for all of the good work being done by Project 16:49. We were astonished by the number of teenagers in Rock County that were without a home and it inspired us to try and help. We spoke with staff, identified areas of need for the organization and created an action plan. One of the immediate needs identified was in the delivery method used to provide vital information to homeless teens. We found a few partners with expertise in the marketing field and were able to secure Fetch Graphics to assist with a complete redesign of the brochures used to solicit assistance from donors and provide information to teens. We also partnered with a web designer to create a more user friendly and welcoming environment for their web presence. The second area of need was the desire of Project 16:49 to create a home for teenage boys similar to the current home for teenage girls (Robin House). We have arranged for a benefit concert to be headlined by South Bound on September 12th at The Rock Bar and Grill in Beloit. Details of the day will follow soon, but the plans include a free concert with a portion of all sales benefitting Project 16:49, a volleyball tournament, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and more. This project was made possible because of the wonderful assistance we received from our partners, and we look forward to staging an amazing benefit in September that will lead to the creation of a much needed home for teenage boys.
