Drexel Edits

Nonprofit organizations in the neighborhoods that border Drexel University are encouraged to connect with Drexel Edits to request free editing services, workshops and public talks that cover public relations and communications topics. Drexel Edits has a team of dedicated volunteers who can consult and provide editing services for the following types of communications:

  • Strategic Plans

  • Social Media and Web Design
  • Grant Proposals
  • Donor Appeals
  • Formal Reports

Giving Back

Drexel Edits cares about the vitality of the nonprofit organizations in our neighborhood. Nonprofit organizations must develop and maintain effective communication strategies to survive in a competitive economy, while also juggling unique needs and limitations. Drexel Edits was created as a center for support of nonprofit communication, to provide pro-bono guidance and services for neighboring nonprofits that want to communicate more effectively with their constituents and benefactors.

Formal messages have been foundational to American democracy since its beginning. 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.

Volunteer With Us

Drexel Edits offers opportunities for Drexel students, alumni, friends and associates to give back to the community and gain hands-on experience with local nonprofits.
