#PRSSANC: 10 Things to Know About Non Profit PR

If anyone is following me on twitter (@marycateduffy), you know I was in Washington D.C. this past weekend for the Public Relations Student Society of America National Conference. I took about eight pages of notes, so stay tuned for all I learned. The first session I attended was on Non Profit PR, and I compiled a list of 10 things you should know if you work with or for non profits. A special thank you to Jennifer Byrd from The Salvation Army and Savannah Fox (fellow Gamecock) from Amnesty International. images

  1. You HAVE to be transparent.
  2. Working in a non-profit can be a forgiving environment. (Great first job)
  3. It is fulfilling work. You are part of something bigger than yourself.
  4. Changing the world is part of the job description when you work for a non-profit.
  5. A non-profit needs to be completely behind its mission.
  6. It is hard, but fulfilling work.
  7. PR is as much offline as it is online when it comes to nonprofits.
  8. It is all about relationships.
  9. Create a story that tells your values.
  10. Public narrative saves lives.
