Unit I Assignment

Unit I Assignment

For this assignment, use the information that you have gathered from the Unit I Lesson and the reading assignments. Prepare the following two communications, and submit them in one document.

  1. Definition of the Issue: Create a visually appealing one-page document to define the issue that your nonprofit will serve. Click here to access a document that recaps the scenario used for this course.

A. Create a document that you can share with your community to educate them on the issue that your nonprofit will serve. For instance, if your nonprofit will help rescue stray animals from being euthanized at a local shelter, then provide a document to define the problem of animal euthanasia or shelter overcrowding in your community.

B. You decide what headings you should include in your document to inform readers about the issue and why they should be concerned about it. This document will represent your company, so it should be professional in its content.

C. In addition, give some thought to the types of information you need to include in this document. Remember, it is a document you might share with a variety of audiences, including citizens, city leaders, and those who might donate or help fund your cause. Analyze the audience, and apply that knowledge to detail adequate information when creating the document.

D. Your document should be visually appealing, easy to read, and no more than one page in length. See Figure 5.2 on page 74 in the textbook for an example of a visually appealing and well-organized document. Remember not to overdo it with colors and images when creating your document; simple is better in designing this type of document because your focus should be on the information you are sharing with your audience.


           2.Nonprofit Overview: Create a one- to two-page overview of your nonprofit company.

A. Your textbook compares an overview to a road map, suggesting that the content included within an overview shows the audience where you are headed and how you plan to get there. Create an overview of your nonprofit company. Think of this document as a road map to show readers who you are and what you want to do in your community.

B. Your overview should be organized like the example in Figure 5.5 on pages 82–83 in the textbook. Your document will not include the same headings that are included in this example because your document serves a different purpose.

C. Consider including headings for things like your company’s mission statement, why this company is so important to you, the types of services or goods you will provide, the cost of these services (if any), the number of volunteers or employees your company will include, and what your long-term goals for the company are. The headings you choose to include and the word choice for these headings are up to you, but be sure that you address all of the questions your readers might have about your company to provide them with adequate information.


Your completed assignment should be at least two pages in length. Outside sources may be included, but they are not required for this assignment. If you do choose to use outside sources, be sure to use APA format to document those sources with in-text citations and a separate references page. Remember that your document does not need to include a title page.
