It's Your District
It’s Your District was organized exclusively to for charitable and educational purposes. Specifically,[[http:itsyourdistrict.org|itsyourdistrict.org]]is a website created to provide equal visibility and resources to all nonprofits in the district no matter what size they are or what they do, as long as they are beneficial to the community.
There is a lack of communication and information among community members and organizations. Bridging this gap can be accomplished by maintaining an accessible, accurate and up to date database of community organizations, non-profits, and events; by contacting and actively recruiting volunteers from each district, neighboring universities and high schools, and connecting local businesses to community organizations within their neighborhood.
Acting as a neutral agent, we allow equal exposure and opportunity for all organizations to promote themselves and see what each other is doing; we encourage collaboration rather than competition, and provide real stakeholder engagement. The site also allows organizations to observe and communicate with each other, to potentially work with each other and share resources. IYD can offer social media publicity, long-term volunteer recruitment, event sharing, and maintain an internet presence amongst their peers.
