Since Rosie’s Place accepts no government funding, fundraising and positive communications are critical to our ability to provide hope for poor and homeless women. We raise $9 million annually through a variety of means including direct mail, grant writing, and special events such as a 1,700-attendee corporate luncheon and spring gala. The Communications team raises awareness and burnishes the image of Rosie’s Place through media and public relations, marketing and publications.
