Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Indian River, St. Lucie and Okeechobee Counties wanted to secure their future funding by creating and maintaining an endowment fund. The organization wanted to raise $100,000 to establish the fund.
BBBS sought out the advice and assistance of Solutions Partnership’s Jeannette Weiss. She, in turn, created and produced a video appeal for the nonprofit.
The very first time the video was shown, an anonymous donor wrote a check for the entire $100,000, saying that the video had made such an impact, they wanted to fund the entire project.
“We at Big Brothers Big Sisters would not have thought of producing a video to fund our endowment … We are indebted to Jeannette for creating a fundraising vehicle which was extremely successful.” — BBBS Executive Director Judi Miller
