The more fundraising theplace2b does, the more it could potentially be in the public eye.

Important concept to take into consideration when viewing theplace2b’s issues because in order for theplace2b to be viewed as an important organization, the organization must be present in the media. theplace2b The "Moving Forward" Block Party will raise awareness for theplace2b, and in order to get people there, we need to advertise.

Recommendations In order to create public awareness and sustain donors, we recommend the following: Those who feel that their views are not shared by the majority will keep their ideas to themselves (Hayes & Shen 2009). In an area that may be predominately white and upper class, the issue of gangs, disadvantaged teens, and homelessness may be pushed to the wayside.

After the John Lewis Center closed, it took a strong group of individuals to come together and address the issue of disadvantaged teens in the Quad Cities area.

The media plays a significant role in the perceptions that people have. 1. Advertise with traditional media.

2. Actively use social media websites to connect with local media and publics.

3. Use press kits to keep local media informed.

4. Advertise in church bulletin & within faith community.

5. Host "Moving Forward" block party. Create strong relationships with local gatekeepers. Limiting, controlling, and shaping the public's knowledge of actual event occurring in reality. Press Release Invitations Fact Sheet Backgrounder Speakers Information Maintaining the relationship Contact List Gatekeepers control the flow of information.
