Chapter Impact Campaign
- PRSA is kicking off its Chapter Impact Campaign this month, to support students of diverse backgrounds in their pursuit of careers in public relations and communications. By working together, PRSA, Chapters and the PRSA Foundation can make a significant impact on our profession by providing education and career opportunities to deserving students and building a diverse workforce.
- PRSA is asking Chapters to share PRSA Foundation information and find creative ways to help support fundraising activities that benefit the PRSA Foundation.
- A campaign toolkit for chapters, with background information and suggestions for different ways to participate, has been posted in the MyPRSA Chapter Leadership Community. Contact Beth-Ellen Keyes, the Foundation’s director of operations and programs, with questions.
- Participating Chapters will receive a digital badge for their websites acknowledging their commitment to diversity and student support through their donation to the PRSA Foundation.
