There truly is no better feeling than giving back. Join us during Chico State’s March 4 Giving Day in donating to Tehama Group Communications.
“It’s PR that needs to be creative. It’s PR that needs to be new and different. It’s PR that needs to be original. The best way to establish a brand is to create a new category, and creating a new category requires creative thinking of the highest order.” – Al & Laura Ries
Giving Day happens once a year on Chico State’s campus. Students, faculty, staff, friends, family and community members all come together in giving back to Chico State and its various programs, clubs and organizations. This year, we ask you to recognize and consider donating to Tehama Group Communications.
TGC is Chico State’s student-managed, full-service public relations agency. From public relations specialists, to graphic designers, to copyeditors, we are here to collaborate in maintaining a positive public image of your company or organization.
“It’s PR that needs to be creative. It’s PR that needs to be new and different. It’s PR that needs to be original. The best way to establish a brand is to create a new category, and creating a new category requires creative thinking of the highest order.” This collaboration and creativity would not be possible without your help.
Our agency is special in that it gives students an opportunity to gain real-world public relations experience while still earning degrees. Without your donations, we would not be able to have the opportunities and resources that we need to flourish in our future careers. Your donations afford us on-site agency visits to experience a day-in-the-life of post-graduate public relations professionals, computer programs for our graphic designers to create beautiful content and office supplies to make day-to-day writing, researching and creating functions a possibility.
Next month, TGC is hoping to raise $5,000 to support the agency. This money keeps us on our feet and allows us the most important learning and growing opportunity of all – serving pro bono clients over the course of a semester. Even though Giving Day isn’t until March 4, TGC’s donation link is open now! Large or small, any contributions help us greatly. Consider spring cleaning your wallets this March and donating to TGC. By visiting our staff-created webpage or texting chicotgc to 71777, you can help us and future staffers have the best experience possible in TGC.
