We are grateful to have been chosen by NSS to be the beneficiary of this unique and first-of-its-kind contest. This concept and model may be a new way to support not-for-profits in the future
Lexington, MA (PRWEB) November 21, 2010
Next Stage Solutions, Inc (NSS) launched an unCommon Contest by offering $50,000 worth of NSS financial services in exchange of a $5,000 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay (BBBS).
Ms. Rudi Scheiber-Kurtz, CEO of Next Stage Solutions, Inc. says “The flat economy has not only hurt small and medium sized companies, but also many not-for-profits.” NSS wanted to help a charity that has a track record in supporting children and families in New England. NSS chose BBBS for their commitment to youth. It is one of the largest adult- child mentoring organizations in the US and the Massachusetts Bay chapter serves over 2,500 youth in one-to-one relationships in over 155 cities and towns.
Ms. Wendy Foster, President & CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay said “We are grateful to have been chosen by NSS to be the beneficiary of this unique and first-of-its-kind contest. This concept and model may be a new way to support not-for-profits in the future.”
NSS also wanted to provide the ‘green-light’ for a company that has been holding back due to the lasting recession and lack of resources. The bearish economy and the lack of confidence in general and a hesitation by CEOs and business owners to move forward inspired NSS to do something about it in a positive way and end up with multiple winners. They see themselves as a leader and positive force in change.
Rudi said “NSS wants to have fun doing something different and a bit out of the box and most importantly we want to showcase our innovative thinking in doing good.”
This is a contest that has a multiplier effect in its outcome. Every contender by default becomes a ‘winner’ because it encourages the company to focus clearly on business strategy, a task long put on hold. There is a win for the Winner, a win for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay and a win for NSS. All the applicant has to do is fill out a proposal form with a project description of no more than 600 words and why this project is important.
All proposals are due Friday, November 26th, 2010 at 6pm. Announcement and celebration of winner & charity will be Tuesday, Dec 14, 2010.
