About the Organization
Drexel Edits offers pro-bono editing services to nonprofit organizations in the neighborhoods that border Drexel University. We also offer workshops and public talks on topics related to nonprofit communication. Drexel Edits has a team of volunteer editors who can edit and consult on the following types of documents:
- Grant Proposals
- Donor Appeals
- Policies & Procedures
- Public Relations & Social Media
- Strategic Plans
In order to help the relevant research disciplines to study and inform the practice of nonprofit communication, Drexel Edits, primarily through its director, publishes occasional scholarly papers.
Drexel Edits offers occasional courses through the Department of Communication including special topics in nonprofit communications and communications for civic engagement. The department's Minor in Communication also allows students to focus on nonprofit communication.
Formal messages have been foundational to American democracy. The architects of the U.S. Constitution and the speechwriters for U.S. presidents have depended on good writing and editing. Well-written and edited texts are no less important for individual U.S. citizens and community organizations who live and flourish within democratic institutions. Drexel Edits was founded to support nonprofit organizations with their formal messages.
