A-wards and RE-wards

When Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners outgrew their Wayzata space, they knew they’d need mass funding to expand their organization. A nonprofit organization serving the western suburbs of the Twin Cities, the need for their services was escalating. IOCP runs a food shelf as well as providing housing, transportation and child care services to families in need.

They found the space they needed in a desirable location to serve their clients, but needed to raise five million dollars for the conversion and the move. With only a few months to generate the funds, they turned to The ADS Group and Studio 120 for help.

We developed a five minute fundraising video for IOCP, and using this powerful tool they were able to raise the money they needed to continue to grow this vital community resource.

It’s a huge honor to be selected as a vendor helping to serve an organization such as IOCP, who pours so much love and so many resources back into our own community. Icing on the cake was being honored professionally for the development of the fundraising video.

This morning, Mitch and Tom stopped by IOCP to present them with the International Communicator award and the Telly that were bestowed upon The ADS Group and Studio 120 in recognition of the production of this fundraising DVD.

We are grateful as an organization for these Awards, but the real REward has been – and will always be – the opportunity to help better our entire community.
