President and founder of the INS group, Ruth Peebles, joins our 2015 Activate Good Pro Heroes program line up as “The Innovative Solutioner”. No stranger to the local nonprofit community, Ruth is using her skills and volunteering to bolster Band Together‘s grant writing strategy.
About Band Together
Band Together’s tagline says it all: “Raise funds. Raise awareness. Raise the bar.” Created after September 11, 2001, Band Together’s mission is to build capacity for Triangle-area nonprofits by amplifying their impact on the community in which we live, using live music as a platform for social change.
Each year Band Together chooses a partner charity with the potential to reach a major milestone with funding support. To do this, Band Together itself must build its funding resources. Enter: Ruth Peebles, The Innovative Solutioner.
Using Professional Skills to Provide Solutions
Ruth is a veteran in the nonprofit industry with over 26 years of experience in providing innovative solutions related to nonprofit management, resource development and grant writing. Ruth’s grant writing consultation will help Band Together diversify its funding base, build its own capacity and ensure long-term sustainability.
I first learned about Band Together’s innovative mission to support nonprofits and the Triangle community about 14 years ago while I was serving as Development Director of Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina.
With her extensive experience and long list of past nonprofit clients from Loaves and Fishes Ministry to Communities In Schools of Wake County, Band Together Executive Director Matt Strickland thinks Ruth is the perfect professional to help Band Together “raise the bar”:
I have been so impressed by the ease and professionalism of our Pro Hero Ruth! Being an Executive Director of a small, yet growing nonprofit, it means the world to have true experts like Ruth to come in and help advance the organization forward. I am so thankful for Ruth and for Activate Good setting this whole project into motion!
