All Points Public Relations PRo Community Project to Provide Much Needed Support for Chicago Area Nonprofits

Chicagoland Integrated Public Relations Agency Awards PR Campaign to Deserving Philanthropic Organization

 DEERFIELD, Ill. – To elevate the impact of Chicagoland nonprofits through powerful communication and activation, All Points Public Relations, a leading integrated public relations agency, is launching its 2020 PRo Community Project.

The annual initiative, geared toward organizations in need of additional communications and marketing support, invites nonprofit leaders to submit their application to enter and potentially win the PRo Community Project. From August 3-31, Chicagoland-based nonprofits can share why their organization is deserving of the support and how it would benefit from media exposure, social media and graphic design. All Points PR will be evaluating entries based on how the integrated PR services awarded will positively increase awareness, membership/donors and/or drive fundraising for a specific campaign.

If chosen, All Points Public Relations will provide the nonprofit organization with pro bono services for the remainder of the year. Services may include: media relations (press release development, media outreach); graphic design (flyer/brochure creation); social media (content creation); and landing page (content creation). The winner will be announced by Monday, September 14.

“Our world has been shaken, but Chicago communities have voices that need a boost to truly be heard,” said Lauren Izaks, COO of All Points Public Relations. “We want to amplify these voices of community leaders, take action and help advocate for issues that are important to us all. With the PRo Community Project, we’re giving back by doing what we do best—public relations, social media and content marketing. It’s important now more than ever to share our resources in support of others.”

Culinary Care, the agency’s 2019 PRo Community Project winner, received free PR, social media and content marketing support for its annual Gourmand Gala. The gala raised $250,000 for the organization’s efforts to provide free, nourishing meals from local restaurants to cancer patients and their families.

In conjunction with the PRo Community Project, All Points Public Relations is also celebrating its 9th anniversary this month. Deerfield natives Lauren and Jamie Izaks launched the company in August of 2011 in pursuit of their own entrepreneurial dream, using the power of integrated campaigns to help franchise brands achieve their goals. The agency’s expertise in the well-defined franchising niche comes from 20-plus years of work in the industry with brands that vary from well-known, national concepts to small franchise systems with less than 100 units, as well as start-ups.

“Nonprofits play a crucial role in representing underserved communities’ needs, but how often does someone help represent their organization?,” said All Points Senior Account Lead JoeyLauren Jiracek, who played an integral role in founding the agency’s PRo Community Project. “At All Points, social responsibility is engrained in our culture—we’re passionate about using our skills to do good for others, and that especially holds true now.”

Submissions will be accepted until Monday, August 31, and the winner will be announced through All Points’ social media channels, as well as contacted directly via email by Monday, September 14.

COO’s Corner: Reflecting on This Year’s PRo Community Project

COO’s Corner: Reflecting on This Year’s PRo Community Project

This past spring, the All Points PR team proudly launched The PRo Community Project. Through this exciting initiative, we set on a journey to partner with a Chicagoland nonprofit and offer free public relations services centered on an upcoming event, as well as volunteer support with a special Positive Impact program.

The All Points team was thrilled to connect with Culinary Care, an organization dedicated to delivering “one less worry” by providing free, nourishing meals from local restaurants to cancer patients and their families. Leading up to the organization’s charity event, the Gourmand Gala, our office came together to provide public relations and media support, as well as social media content and influencer outreach, to help spread awareness of Culinary Care’s mission and the gala.

On Thursday, October 17, the entire All Points team saw the project come full circle with the opportunity to volunteer at Culinary Care’s Gourmand Gala for our quarterly Positive Impact program. Hosted at the beautiful Chicago History Museum, the Gourmand Gala welcomed hundreds of foodies, philanthropists and cancer survivors with one goal in mind: to help fill the plates of those fighting cancer. This year, the charity event raised $250,000 toward Culinary Care’s mission to support patients and families in need.

The pairing of the new PRo Community Project and our ongoing Positive Impact program stands as an incredible milestone in 2019 for All Points. Our Positive Impact program reflects our commitment to corporate social responsibility through passionate philanthropic efforts, and the launch of the PRo Community project further extends our ability to make a meaningful impact on community organizations that do good for others. We look forward to all that’s yet to come for the project and the organizations we serve.
