Local Videographer Raises Awareness About Lander’s Nonprofit Sector

  • Local Champion: Topographic Media
  • Date Funded: March 24, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $10,445

Lander is known as both a tourism destination and a hub of outdoor recreation, but the community also boasts a rich nonprofit community, which is often overlooked. Unfortunately, many of those nonprofits don’t have the ability or budgets to produce marketing materials to address this perception problem. So to raise awareness about Lander’s robust nonprofit and volunteer scene—what some call Lander’s “third sector”—one local videographer worked with area nonprofits to come up with a potential solution: create a five-part video series that the nonprofit community can use for volunteer and job recruitment—and leverage to help build Lander’s reputation as more than a tourist destination for outdoor adventurers. LOR’s funding will help support the production of the series.

This project is fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
