Call for nominations: LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge

The LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge Provides $15K Worth of Pro Bono PR Services to a Local Nonprofit for One Year

PR firm challenges other local complementary marketing firms to lend their services

PORTLAND, Ore., May 20, 2010—LT Public Relations, a full-service PR firm specializing in external, internal and crisis communications for the financial and professional services sector, today announced the call-for-nominations for its 2010 LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge—a twelve-month pro bono public relations initiative (valued at $15,000) that will support a deserving local Oregon or Washington nonprofit (501(c)(3)) in generating awareness.

The LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge aims to assist an organization that focuses on providing financial education, professional services (e.g. legal support), or related assistance to the community. Each month for one year, the LT Public Relations team will work collaboratively with the chosen nonprofit to help raise awareness and support for its cause by providing public relations guidance such as news releases, media relations, media training, community outreach, social media and other related PR services. 

“Most local nonprofits are seriously challenged with raising the appropriate awareness to help their organization flourish,” said Casey Boggs, president of LT Public Relations. “The LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge is designed to meet this problem head-on and help provide the attention the nonprofit deserves.”

The application and submission information for the LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge is available at www.ltpublicrelations.com. All related Oregon and Washington-based nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 18, 2010.  

LT Public Relations also invites other Oregon and Washington based firms that specialize in branding, advertising, marketing and social media to join the challenge and provide services that would complement LT Public Relations’ PR efforts.  Firms that are interested in donating their time and talents to the LT Public Relations Nonprofit Challenge can contact [email protected] or 503-477-9215.
