For nonprofits, it’s all about nurturing donor relationships. Here are some examples of  communications from Lanny’s nonprofit portfolio that touch hearts and inspire donations. 

Website: Jewish Housing & Programing

J-HAP serves the needs of adults with developmental disabilities. In addition to housing, they provide a full range of activities for their tenants. Lanny worked with the nonprofit to create a website that celebrates the program and inspires donations.

“A New Standard in Housing for Adults with Developmental Disabilities” 
Cornerstone Creek welcomed its first tenants in January of 2017

…and all 45 units were quickly filled. The state-of-the-art building is the culmination of 10 years of planning, research, fundraising and dedication. It’s the only place of its kind in the Twin Cities offering affordable, independent apartment living along with progressive amenities at no charge to the tenants or their families.

Website: Cancer Support Sonoma

Soon after becoming a 501©(3) nonprofit, Cancer Support Sonoma needed a website that would touch the hearts of clients and donors. Lanny collaborated with Acme Graphics to create the site. She also writes and manages a bi-monthly newsletter and scripted and co-produced a video, “How to Host a Friend Raiser.”

The only treatment center of its kind in Sonoma Valley”

Large or small, your gift helps provide care to cancer patients in our community.

One client’s story: Laura came to us after a diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer … the most aggressive form of the disease. She was just starting chemotherapy when she came seeking integrative therapy.

 “I was so fatigued from the chemo, but it was hard for me to ask for help,” she says.

Newsletter: Cancer Support Sonoma

Cancer Support Sonoma’s e-newsletter keeps clients, donors and members of the community up-to-date on the latest happenings at the nonprofit. As writer/editor Lanny helps plan the content, writes the articles, partners with the designer, and proofreads before publishing.


 “New home! New services! New website!”

(Can you tell we’re excited?)
CSS is now serving clients from our new digs at 585 1st Street West,
just a block off the Sonoma Plaza.
It has long been our dream to have a space where, in addition to our regular services, we can hold classes, workshops and events on site. Now that day has come! 

Annual Report: To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation

To Celebrate Life raises money and gives it away…to nonprofits in the 9 county Bay Area that provide support services to people dealing with the effects of breast cancer. For their annual report, Lanny writes stories that illustrate who their funding helps and what it means to them.

“Going from despair to gratitude.”

“It was the worst day of my life,” recalls Shirley. “I almost fell on the floor.” That day, of course, was when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Shirley came to the U.S. from Brazil 27 years ago and has worked as a nanny. On the day of her diagnosis, she had $18 in the bank and didn’t know what she was going to do.

Newsletter: To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation

“In The Loop” was To Celebrate Life’s quarterly newsletter. For each issue, Lanny profiled a volunteer in a feature called Face of the Foundation, and a grantee in a column called How Your Dollars Help.

“Face of the Foundation” – Barbara Burke Heaton

When you’re watching our marvelous Stepping Out models in gorgeous gowns and daytime fashions, do you ever wonder how the clothes got from the store to the runway? It’s quite a journey, led by Wardrobe Committee Lead Barbara Burke Heaton and her talented team. Barbara has been volunteering in this role for about 15 years…
