The Public Relations Society of America’s National Capital Chapter is seeking a new pro bono client in the form of a Washington, D.C. area-based nonprofit. 

PRSA-NCC’s pro bono committee is looking for an organization that currently faces a PR challenge or opportunity and requires additional resources to effectively address that issue.

Pro Bono and Community Support

The nonprofit PRSA-NCC chooses will receive free consulting, training and communications services aligned with the organization’s needs. Support will include strategic counsel and the creation of PR and digital materials, as well as media training support and an audit of the nonprofit client’s communications structure. Pro bono efforts will also include identifying key communications goals and support for branding and marketing initiatives.

While the committee will consider all submissions, special consideration will be given to organizations specializing in the following five social cause areas: children and family; youth education and enrichment; girls and women; arts, culture, humanities; and human services, such as food or housing.

Following the RFP process, the pro bono committee will conduct a formal scoring process before narrowing down applicants to five finalists who will then be scheduled in-person interviews.

Deadline for proposals is midnight on Feb. 9.

Contact is Lisa Joahil, co-chair of PRSA-NCC’s marketing and communications committee, lisajoahil@gmail.com.
