Local Children Form Life Changing Relationships Thanks to Business/Non-profit Partnership
Friday, September 21, 2018
Liberty Township, OH – Through a first-time grant from SpotOn Productions, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County now has a professional video which has helped them recruit more than 50 new volunteers committed to helping improve the lives of local children.
In addition to being one of the area’s premier video production companies, SpotOn Productions has also had a presence in the community through staff members volunteering their time to serve on local non-profit boards and helping with various community events. They began to see that non-profit organizations had pressing needs for communication tools, but rarely had the budget to afford them. This was the inspiration behind the SpotOn Non-profit Video Grant.
“We wanted a new way make a meaningful difference for one local nonprofit, by creating a video that would have a great impact for their organization”, said Ian Murray SpotOn Productions president. “We also knew that the grant had to be of significant value to result in a high-quality professional product.”
SpotOn Productions announced the availability of the grant, and quickly received 32 applications from local non-profit organizations. After a rigorous screening process, the SpotOn team selected Big Brothers Big Sisters as the recipient of the inaugural Non-profit Video Grant. The Butler County organization was thrilled with their selection.
Marvin Torres, Vice President of Marketing and Outreach stated, “I applied for the Non-Profit Video Grant because we have a great story to tell but it's often hard to communicate it through words alone. I knew SpotOn provided a medium that could truly illustrate the power of mentoring.”
Torres continued, “We couldn't be more pleased with the finished product which magnificently told the story of our agency. The video was so well done that it was chosen by our National Office to be featured at the 2018 National Conference to agency leaders across the nation.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County has used their new video primarily to attract new volunteers and donors. To date, the video has prompted 130 new volunteer inquiries which in turn has resulted in the organization signing up more than 50 new volunteers to serve as mentors to area children.
SpotOn Productions plans on awarding another Non-profit Video Grant in 2019.
