Funding Research and Grant Writing
HISTORIAS identifies foundation and government funding sources for your nonprofit and crafts grant proposals that tell your story to potential funders. We do this while remaining true to your organization’s history and its vision for the future. Our specialty is historical and cultural grant proposals, but we have the ability to craft a strong, nuanced proposal for whatever your organization needs.
Community and Media Outreach
HISTORIAS implements targeted community and media outreach to tell your story in a way that gets the attention it merits. We can write everything from traditional press releases to social media posts that will garner attention and bring your story to a larger, more diverse audience. We can serve as editors to fine-tune your prose or create something from scratch, depending on your organizational needs and budget.
WRITTEN MATTER WE HAVE PRODUCED INCLUDES:
PRESS RELEASES • ARTICLES • GUIDES • BROCHURES • PROPOSALS • BOOKS
Event Planning and Organizing
HISTORIAS organizes events so that you can focus on continuing to build your organization. We conduct thoughtful outreach to spread the word and can also solicit donations for your nonprofit or community organization. We can help you find the best venue, meet with stakeholders, conduct media outreach and follow your event with elegant letters of acknowledgment so donors and attendees will know that you recognize and appreciate their support.
WE HAVE EXPERIENCE ORGANIZING, FACILITATING AND PROMOTING A WIDE RANGE OF EVENTS, INCLUDING:
SILENT AUCTIONS • LECTURES/SEMINARS • JOB FAIRS • COMMUNITY MEETINGS
HISTORIAS conducts archival research – whether for a community wishing to document land, water, or other claims or for a family seeking to know its roots better through a genealogical investigation. We have worked with documents in Spain, Mexico, and the US from the sixteenth century to the present, and can help you research and write the story you wish to tell.
Historical research services also include the ability to transcribe documents so they are readable in their native languages of German or Spanish, and translate documents from German and Spanish into contemporary English. We can create databases and place your story in historical context. Once we finalize the story you wish to tell, we can help you present this story before a broad audience, as necessary to help you reach your goals.
