As BizTimes Media pulls together its fifth annual Giving Guide, its editorial team is seeking story ideas on corporate leaders and employees who make significant community contributions through their time, talent and treasure.
The Giving Guide is a supplementary publication focused on southeastern Wisconsin’s nonprofit community and the philanthropic initiatives making a lasting impact on greater Milwaukee.
Through the Giving Guide, to be released on Nov. 10, BizTimes readers can connect with area nonprofit organizations to learn how to become involved with their missions. The guide features advertisements with the missions, volunteer opportunities and giving opportunities of more than 50 regional nonprofits grounded in a variety of focus areas.
The publication also features an editorial section titled “Profiles in Philanthropy” that highlights effective partnerships between southeastern Wisconsin’s business community and nonprofit community. Additionally, the section spotlights several individuals in the region committed to supporting organizations and causes with their personal time and resources.
To pitch an idea for a profile of an individual philanthropist, email BizTimes reporter Erica Breunlin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on how to run an advertisement for an area nonprofit organization in the publication, email BizTimes’ director of sales, Linda Crawford, at email@example.com.
Each sponsorship package includes a paid two-page profile for the nonprofit, 10,000 run-of-site impressions, and a 1/8-page four-color advertisement in a 2015 BizTimes publication for promotion of the nonprofit’s mission and events.
Nonprofit organizations that participate in the 2015 Giving Guide will also be granted table display space at the Nonprofit Excellence Awards event on Nov. 4 at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. The guide will be distributed at the Nonprofit Excellence Awards program as well as at the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ 2014 National Philanthropy Day Awards lunch on Nov. 11 at The Pfister Hotel.
Requests for advertising space in the Giving Guide must be submitted by Oct. 3.
