“I first learned about Band Together’s innovative mission to support nonprofits and the Triangle community while I was serving as Development Director of Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina,” says Ms. Peebles. “I am amazed how far they have come as an organization and the impact they have made since their inception.”
In order to sustain its mission for the long term, Band Together needs to secure funding resources and partnered with Activate Good to connect with a professional willing to volunteer fundraising expertise. That’s when Activate Good turned to The INS Group’s Ms. Peebles, known as “The Innovative Solutioner,”
The INS Group will provide a comprehensive grant proposal template and create a strategy for cultivating new relationships with private and corporate foundations both locally and nationally. The firm’s goal is to provide innovative approaches to secure unrestricted funds to help Band Together increase its community impact.
With more than 26 years of hands-on experience in nonprofit management, fundraising, organizational development, and project management, Ms. Peebles is a perfect match for Band Together – and Executive Director Matt Strickland welcomes her skills. “I have been so impressed by the ease and professionalism of our Pro Hero Ruth!” he said. “Being an Executive Director of a small, yet growing nonprofit, it means the world to have true experts like Ruth to come in and help advance the organization forward. I am so thankful for Ruth and for Activate Good setting this whole project into motion!”
