Brand Strategy for NSCD-KCWhat are the specific needs to be addressed by a branding campaign?Community awareness is the need of NSCD. With a great program, allowing great opportunitiesfor the disabled, more help is always needed. Specifically, this campaign is targeted towardsgaining new volunteers.What is needed to connect client brand with college students?Inclusion and participation are needed for NSCD to connect with college students. Almost everycollege has sports teams and practice areas; that is the basic necessities for NSCD’s sports camps.College athletes get to share their love of sports with those who are less fortunate while givingdisabled children a chance that they wouldn’t ordinarily receive.What event, cause or program is being promoted?The Sporting Chance Individual Giving Campaign.How does the event or program advance the client and stakeholderbrands?This campaign would allow NSCD to expand and spread the word about their organization to thecommunity. With the access of Avila’s athletes and grounds that would help with volunteers andcut back on funding. E

NSCD2. Internal Stakeholdershas been around for 40 years, but the Kansas City location is still fairly new and very small. There areonly a handful of associates led under the Executive Director, Bob Kendrick. Kendrick hopes to expandcommunity awareness, along with bringing on David DeJesus, from the Kansas City Royals, to be NSCD-KC’s spokesperson. Having a well-known spokesperson will bring on even more credibility to theprogram. NSCD is truly a one-of-a-kind program. The closest competitor would be Special Olympics, but3. Competitive Reviewthey mostly focus on mental disabilities, while NSCD focuses on physical and emotional disabilities. Also,Special Olympics of Kansas City is a partner of NSCD. The mission of the NSCD is to provide quality outdoor sports and therapeutic recreation programs4. Brand Value Propositionthat positively impact the lives of people with physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral challenges. This program offers the “test” for children and parents to see if the disabled child likes and benefitsfrom sporting activities. These children love the sports camps and this program allows new doors to openfor them. E

NSCD-KC ProposalNSCD offers free sports camps to children with physical, mental and emotional disabilities. With nearlyBackground/Need20,000 lessons annually, it is evident that volunteers and funds are strongly needed, as these camps arefree to the children. Providing these unique camps, in winter and summer, is a “test” for the children.Instead of parents paying for expensive sports lessons, this is an opportunity to see if their child enjoys it.Not only do the children love it, new doors are opened for them that otherwise would not.With 40 years of providing disabled children the ability to participate in free sports camps, NationalSports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) has opened its first satellite office in Kansas City, Missouri. In orderfor the sports camps to run effectively, volunteers are needed.College-aged athletes.Target AudienceIncrease Avila/community awareness and individual support with volunteers while hoping to generateGoalsvolunteers. • Obtain 20% of Avila Athlete’s to volunteer in the program.Primary Objective Grow program 5% each year. Secondary ObjectiveTo increase the NSCD volunteers by 20%, the campaign will need to be branding in order to promoteSolution Overviewcommunity awareness. This will be done by creating a logo, Facebook information, billboard, a brochure,print ad, and T-shirt designs. These materials will help get the word out to help Avila understand theimportance of this program. NSCD, currently, is barely in the media world, with just a web site. With the Kansas City branch Strategies only having a tab of the main web site, doesn’t allow much exposure. Through rigorous promoting on and off the Avila campus will expand the community’s awareness and volunteers. E
