PUI CASE STUDY – BIRMINGHAM URBAN LEAGUE
Elaine Jackson, the CEO of the Birmingham Urban League, wanted to have an event to commemorate the League’s 40th anniversary. With only 3 months to plan and a staff that was busy with its own workload, she came to Projects Unlimited for help. She had a vision for the event, but she needed help with all of the logistics of the event from the planning to the execution. That’s where PUI came in.
We were her “guns for hire.” We handled all of the logistics of planning the event so she could focus on one key component – fundraising. While we worked with the venue, vendors, entertainment, decorators and so on, she was freed up to dedicate most of her energy on sponsor development.
In the end, together with the CEO, we produced an event that the board of directors and the community-at-large was proud of. Equally, she was able to raise more than $70,000 in unrestricted cash for the Birmingham Urban League.
