WordWrite supports PR, awareness efforts in community-based biodiversity and sustainability projects
As United Nations World Environment Day approaches on June 5, 2010 and the International Year of Biodiversity is already underway, The Sprout Fund has launched an initiative to support environmental efforts surrounding these events.
The Spring Program is a funding stream to support local biodiversity initiatives in 2011. Subsidized by The Pittsburgh Foundation, this new program will catalyze community-based projects in Allegheny County and the surrounding communities of Southwestern Pennsylvania with small grants of up to $20,000. Spring builds on the non-profit Sprout Fund's mission to support innovative ideas and grassroots community projects that catalyze change in Pittsburgh.
WordWrite Communications, a Pittsburgh-based public relations agency, is working with The Sprout Fund to create awareness of The Spring Program with local bloggers and news media to help Spring gain momentum in the local community. WordWrite will be spreading the word via social media as well traditional media in its efforts.
On Friday, June 4 from 5:30-9:30 p.m., Sprout welcomes friends, neighbors, supporters and those who want to learn more about the organization for an evening of music and refreshments at its offices in Bloomfield. The Summer Open House also offers a chance to meet the Sprout Fund board and staff and provide an opportunity to learn more about Sprout’s programs, including Spring. For more information, visit Sprout’s Facebook page.
