Jessica… has been instrumental in rebranding Jewish Family Service in the market place. From designing the logo, development and maintaining the website, contacting media, writing copy and all the tasks in between she has guided us through the process.  Her talent is evidenced by her creative work.”

 

With Jessica’s support JFS has been able to increase our visibility as well as our donor base.  As funding becomes increasingly competitive in the non profit world she has used her talens to impact our fund raising campaigns by developing a plan to increase our donor base through targeted cultivation.  I receive many complements about the agency annual reports and annual appeal and it is evidenced by increased giving.  She has the ability to make the case for support that motivates small and large donors.

 

JFS is a multi-faceted community-based agency that provides services to allreligious denominations, race, and gender and socioeconomic backgrounds.  Jessica has been able to develop specific campaigns that target distinctive services while knitting all of the programs together and creating a cohesive development and outreach strategy.

 

She is diligent and structured in a way that keeps us focused on the importance of developing a consistent media message.  Jessica is successful because she believes in the JFS mission and translates it to a visual, tactile and auditory communication. 

 

Jessica Thorpe is Outside the Box and her brand is her commitment to the story.

This company has taken the Center to new heights in reference to branding, marketing, strategic / business planning, program development, fund raising, communications services, development.  When non-profit organizations start

out at ground zero and grown to 100 percent it has to be attributed to something.  In the case of the Center, it was Outside the Box who took

our organization and pulled out all of our attributes.

 

This business has one of Buffalo’s outstanding writers; she is extremely conscientious about her clients and will work, teach and guide you in a

direction that will take your product beyond its scope.

 

Outside the Box is highly recommended by me and my board of directors to anyone who is looking for a company that can cover many aspects of marketing /development / communications / writing.  Outside the Box would be an asset on so many levels to take your organization or business to the level of professionalism you are seeking.

" The continued 'telling of story'

 through Outside the Box’s lead articles and other media has had a great positive impact on our ability to network and seek support from all donor constituent

groups at the school

as well as the university.”

Outside the Box has provided me with creative cost effective print pieces which have been very effective in the school’s messaging and outreach needs.”

 

“Jessica has the keen ability to understand broad topics, synthesize these ideas into smaller topics for her meetings and constituent groups and the put all this information into the article in a cohesive and very readable way.  The readers of these print pieces often comment about how much they enjoy reading these lead articles and enjoy the style and cadence of the piece.”

 

These media pieces help us to tell the school’s “story” which is a large piece of our philanthropic outreach to our alumni, friends and donors.  The continued “telling of story” through Outside the Box’s lead articles and other media has had a great positive impact on our ability to network and seek support from all donor constituent groups at the school as well as the university.”

 

 

I believe Jessica’s professional skills and humanistic qualities allow her to ‘know’ her interview subjects, make them feel at ease, and ask the right probing questions which results in rich copy, a great story and increased interest and support of the school!  

 

highly recommend Jessica and Outside the Box for their work and assistance with these types of media needs.
