Project Details

What We Need
  • Ongoing copywriting support for 15-20 hours over the course of 4 weeks
  • Support may include: email campaigns, website content, brochures, one-pager/fact sheets, or fundraising/promotional materials

  • Note: We devised this project to connect nonprofits and volunteers for more flexible, more immediate impact. We strongly suggest you start with 4 weeks and decide from there if you'd like to continue working.

Additional Details

I am looking for email templates to help manage our volunteer program. Volunteers work with our organization on a variety of projects and I need help creating a welcome/ welcome back email template, a thank you email template for one time volunteer events, a "sign up for new projects" email template, and an email template to send out to various channels, including donors, stakeholders, and for general supporters.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a drafted email template for volunteers to sign up, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have past email templates in Mailchimp and Squarespace, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,002 , allowing us to plant twice as many floating gardens filled with native plants and install the first floating forrest on the Chicago River.

This project will help us keep clear communication to our growing network of volunteers. Having prewritten email templates will allow us to connect various events and happenings to a wider audience.

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides an outline of current state of copywriting at the organization
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of ongoing copywriting need they have over the next 2-4 weeks
  • Volunteer and Volunteer Manager align on the scope of ongoing support that the Volunteer will provide to address this need
Step 1: Ongoing Support
  • Volunteer delivers ongoing support according to determined outline
  • Weekly check-ins to ensure support is being offered as agreed upon by both parties
Step 2: Training & Offboarding
  • Volunteer provides any relevant training to the Volunteer Manager to help them continue work, as necessary, after 4 weeks
