Creative York – Annual Reports

Annual Reports Help Local Non-Profit Highlight Major Milestones

Creative York, a local non-profit arts organization, wanted to highlight their 30th anniversary as well as other major milestones, so they partnered with GRIT to design annual reports. It had been several years since Creative York published an annual report, so it was important their brand story, overarching community impact story, and major achievements were highlighted alongside the presented data.

The final design concepts included a unique, 30th anniversary logo created by GRIT. Additionally, photographs to showcase Creative York’s history as well as their community-focused programs, classes, and events that inspire creativity were featured. Complex financial information and statistics were presented in a clean, easy-to-understand format to demonstrate the organization’s achievement of becoming debt-free in 2020. Members and donors were also listed in the annual report to recognize their contributions to Creative York’s success over the past 30+ years.

GRIT managed print and mailing services to ensure the pieces were delivered to prospective donors, members, and other stakeholders. In addition to the print piece, GRIT created an electronic version that can be viewed on Creative York’s website. Today, the annual reports serve as a donor and community engagement tool that the Creative York team uses to cultivate ongoing conversations with key constituents.

The annual reports received a lot of positive feedback from recipients. It was a pleasure to partner with Creative York to showcase all the amazing programs they offer the community as well as their personal achievements!
