Help Support the Next Generation of Communicators

You may have heard us shout from the rooftops about Three­Six­ty Jour­nal­ism, which trains and sup­ports Min­neso­ta high school stu­dents as they grow into the next gen­er­a­tion of diverse thinkers, com­mu­ni­ca­tors and lead­ers. Our agency has been sup­port­ing this phe­nom­e­nal non­prof­it pro­gram for more than a decade, Senior Account Exec­u­tive Bri­ana Grue­newald worked for Three­Six­ty, and I’ve been on the board for the past eight-plus years. And we reg­u­lar­ly host sum­mer camp stu­dents to share with them the pub­lic rela­tions side of com­mu­ni­ca­tions and open their eyes to one more oppor­tu­ni­ty that may be ahead for them.

This year, in con­junc­tion with our upcom­ing annu­al fundrais­ing event, the Great MN Media Get-Togeth­er, we’ve kicked off our first-ever crowd­fund­ing cam­paign to make it eas­i­er than ever to donate to this wor­thy cause. The cam­paign runs until next Mon­day, Oct. 8.

All you have to do is vis­it this link, click on the “Give now” but­ton and select “Bell­mont Part­ners” from the des­ig­na­tion drop­down menu.

Our con­tri­bu­tions are in mem­o­ry of two friends and com­mu­ni­ca­tions giants we lost this year, both of whom were long­time board mem­bers, pas­sion­ate pro­po­nents of Three­Six­ty and friends of ours, Den­nis McGrath and Doug Hennes.

We hope you’ll join us in hon­or­ing Den­nis and Doug’s deep and unwa­ver­ing sup­port for Three­Six­ty and con­sid­er a dona­tion of any size. More than 90 per­cent of the Three­Six­ty Jour­nal­ism stu­dents par­tic­i­pate at no cost to them or their fam­i­lies, based on finan­cial need.

Thanks very much for any sup­port you can pro­vide to this orga­ni­za­tion and its students!
