Washington, DC — August 19, 2019 —ServiceSource is among the inaugural class of grantees to receive one of DCTV’s newly formed Capacity Building Grants. The grant program fosters expanded opportunity for nonprofit organizations to share their stories of community impact through professionally-produced video content that can be shared via social media and website platforms. In addition, ServiceSource will receive valuable media education assistance to strengthen our communications capabilities and expand storytelling capacity.

As part of the new Capacity Building Grant program, DCTV will create a new weekly television series, District Life, which will explore the nature of living in Washington, DC and share important conversations and compelling stories with people all over the District. This new show will be a vehicle for distributing powerful stories about the impact that nonprofits are having in their communities.

“At DCTV, we understand the critical role that the nonprofit sector plays in sparking vital conversations that ultimately affect the lives of residents across the District of Columbia,” said Nantz Rickard, President and CEO of DCTV. “We are thrilled to welcome our first class of grantees and we look forward to the quality stories that show how nonprofit organizations are impacting the neighborhoods and communities across the District.”
