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
