Ongoing communication about your work is crucial to success. Once you’ve secured funding, engaged your partners and volunteers, and gotten down to business, you’ll want to spread the word that you’re making great things happen.
Media releases, reports, and online updates are great ways to celebrate your milestones big and small, to keep your project funders informed, and to share your successes with your community and stakeholders. Many funders require formal recognition of their contribution through media releases and websites, and almost all require final, and sometimes interim, reports on your progress.
But follow-up communications are more than just a formality. Sharing your successes (and even your challenges) shows your commitment to your work, and gives funders, partners, and communities confidence in you and what you’re doing – and encourages them to stay committed to you.
