PresenTense Group: Online Community DivisionMission:
Facilitate conversations, connection, and information sharing among PT community,staff, and core volunteers.
Project summary:
PresenTense seeks to continue and extend the impact of the work it doesoffline, online - to build a strong framework for organizational growth and to grow ourcommunity around ideas and ventures launched.
Throughout our organization’s history, we have
stressed the importance of a clear message, organized and easy-to-use website, integration of social media tools, mobilization of the broader community, and a strong underlying framework for storing and sharing information. As we expand the PresenTense fellowship to even morecities in 5771 and beyond, this becomes even more important for us to effectively communicatewith our growing base of volunteers, as well as the Jewish community as a whole.
This proposal outlines steps to improve PresenTense’s online presence and digital footprint
through the end of September 2011, or the Jew
ish year 5771. It includes expanding our website’s
content and design, better organizing and featuring our media content, increasing awarenessabout PresenTense programs through use of social media and informal online channels, andorganizing our community and ever-growing store of information and connections.

sharing, telling the world about PresenTense’s activities and successes, and engaging our ever 
-growing community of volunteers and supporters. For us to continue to succeed, we will need tocontinually expand and improve our current communications systems, database system, andwebsite. This provides a strong backbone for the organization which sets the foundation for all of our divisions and will lead to a more engaged and vibrant community.
