Philadelphia, PA- On Tuesday, April 15 from 12PM - 2PM the Urban Affairs Coalition (UAC) will host Coalition U: Storytelling "How to make your fundraising letter sing." The event will take place at Independence Blue Cross, 1901 Market Street. Lorina Marshall-Blake, President of the Independence Blue Cross (IBC) Foundation, will serve as the hostess for the event and share how IBC has effectively told its story through marketing. A complimentary lunch will be provided, however all attendees must register at www.uac.org . Space is limited.  

Last month Coalition U hosted "Finding and Engaging New Donors" which provided valuable insight on how nonprofits can increase their donor base to raise more money. Coalition U: Storytelling will serve as a follow up offering organizations information on how to write a compelling appeal letter through storytelling.  

In celebration of our 45th Anniversary, UAC re-launched Coalition U, a capacity building initiative which assists nonprofits in strengthening their infrastructure and in maximizing and documenting their impact. Coalition U offers a variety of capacity building seminars and workshops geared towards improving overall organizational health and program quality. Seminars and Workshops are held monthly. Coalition U is offered free to UAC partners and at a low cost to other organizations (typically $20).

For more information about Coalition U, please email CoalitionU@uac.org or call 215-851-1701.
