GRANVILLE, Ohio— Denison University’s Venture Philanthropy Club (VPC), a student service-learning club, will award a $10,000 grant and 200 hours of student volunteer time to the Licking County Humane Society. The Humane Society will use the grant to purchase and utilize a management software program that will allow the organization to track and steward its donors. Students will research software options, manage the purchase and installation of a chosen program and work to integrate the software within the Humane Society’s existing infrastructure. Students also will assist in the design of a variety of public relations materials.
Executive director of the Humane Society Lori Carlson said, “The grant will allow the Humane Society to better connect with community members on a regular basis. This investment should allow the Humane Society to more effectively harness its growing coalition of volunteers, adoptive families, organization members, and donors— helping to ensure long-term success.”
