A while back we posted a Silent Auction Bid Sheet Template and it's downloaded pretty frequently. So we're adding a Press Release Template, another useful tool to help third party fundraisers with their fundraising efforts. Look for more free downloads in the future that will help you raise money for your charity by streamlining some of the monotony.
We tried to be as general as possible in the Press Release Sample text and made it obvious where you will need to insert your own information. Feel free to download the template, make changes and apply it as necessary.
Press releases should be part of your outreach effort. Writing press releases is repetitive and formulaic so use the template to get started. Before you know it, you can cross the press release off your list of to-dos and get back to raising money. Here's more information on how you can use the press release to generate publicity.
Good luck and Happy Fundraising!
