Quotes In A Press Release
12/7/2012 at 1:39 PM ET
I am working on a press release for a nonprofit announcing that we've received 2 grants sponsoring a tech program for our students (we are an after-school program). The grants are from two different organizations and only one has provided a quote. Would be ok. to launch the press release with a quote from one of the organizations only? Would it appear as if we are favoring one organization over the other?

you can hardly be blamed if someone doesn't bother to supply you with information that would do them some good. You could always call the other organization by phone or email and let them know that you will go ahead without them if they don't want to join in. Or you could explain that one of the organizations didn't comment?

Who is the primary target audience for the press release? What is it you want to happen as a result of the press release? What's the objective?
It seems to me that once you have the objective clearly defined, your question will answer itself.

Call the second source, talk to whoever is in charge of PR and ask for a comment that you can include in your release.

Or, you can get a quote from the students - saying how much they appreciate the organization to keep the program funded...

I am closing this question since there hasn't been any activity in 10 days.
Thanks for participating!
