Integrated solutions and managed services company, Konica Minolta, is assisting the Sydney Story Factory in the relaunch of its regular giving program. The regular giving program is a key strategy for building the organisation’s donations base.
The Sydney Story Factory is a not-for-profit creative writing centre for young people in Redfern, Sydney. Its trained volunteer tutors offer free help for young people to write stories of all kinds.
The regular giving program generates sponsorship for a child’s place in a workshop every month, ensuring that young people receive one-on-one attention to help them transform their writing skills and boost their self-confidence.
The organisation was looking to relaunch and turned to Konica Minolta for assistance. The team at Konica Minolta developed a plan to help the Sydney Story Factory increase donations and continue its work helping Sydney’s youth express themselves by igniting their creativity one story at a time.
Konica Minolta CSR sustainability consultant, Anastasia Konstantelos, said Konica Minolta is a company that cares about and actively applies the principle of giving back to the community.
“In Australia, we are involved in industries that print content for public consumption. This makes it a natural fit for us to assist an organisation that helps young people reach their potential through storytelling across a range of media,” she said.
Sydney Story Factory development manager, Jayne Wasmuth, said Konica Minolta has beben a great help through the relaunch.“I continue to be amazed and grateful for everything Konica Minolta has doing with the Sydney Story Factory to help us with our mission to provide writing opportunities for young people through our regular giving program,” Wasmuth added.
