Miami Nonprofit and Production Company Donate $90,000 in Free Video Services to Seven Nonprofits

(MIAMI, Florida) Through the 2019 Eyes On Your Mission (EOYM) free video grant opportunity, YWCA Greater Miami Dade, Inc. is one of seven innovative nonprofit organizations that will receive video production services worth upwards of $10,000-25,000 each. Annually, the EOYM free video grant empowers community stakeholders with new media production experiences that truly make a difference.

This year, EOYM focused on projects that had a clear vision for what they wanted to achieve. YWCA Greater Miami Dade has an ambitious plan to impact Miami Dade as it starts its centennial campaign, but has limited budgets, staff prioritized for programs and restricted bandwidth for communications planning considered integral to for-profit businesses. EOYM felt strongly that YWCA Greater Miami Dade would be best supported by free video services and will have a wider impact with more eyes on their mission.

The nearly 100-year-old nonprofit will be receiving free services, which will coincide with EOYM’s Fall 2019 “Filmmaking for Good” Virtual Training Intensive. EOYM’s “Filmmaking for Good” Intensive includes 16 digital modules (each 45 minutes long), delivered over the course of approximately one month designed for middle schools, high schools, colleges and out of school (OST) programs. The Intensive engages educators to teach young people how to produce short films focused on a social cause and highlighting a local nonprofit organization. The Intensive directly connects with the organization’s mission impact work to engage learning through community building in hopes to equip our future leaders. The Intensive will also encourage youth to spread positive messages on social media

Eyes On Your Mission helps nonprofits with digital storytelling to illustrate their successes and articulate their impact in vivid detail for potential funding, partners, sponsors, volunteers, and board members. The EOYM team, led by Jessica Kizorek and Hopi Noel Morton, provides rich media creation and training that supports community changemakers and their initiatives. VISIT: EyesOnYourMission.org/grants
