What is Partner Voices?

Partner Voices is the best way for nonprofits to promote their services. We believe traditional display promotions do not allow organizations to go very deep with their stories. So we created this format where nonprofit organizations can promote their work. Either the nonprofit or a sponsor pay for these promotions and control their messaging. The business or philanthropist paying for each promotion will be clearly indicated on each Partner Promo.

It’s simply a chance for nonprofits and the people who support them to explain why they do what they do beyond just display advertisements.

Who writes the Partner Promos in the Partner Voices section?

Voice of San Diego’s development department has developed a new way to promote nonprofits using the storytelling power of the internet. The development team produces the Partner Promos and they are not editorial products of Voice of San Diego’s journalists.

Will Partner Voices sponsors/underwriters affect VOSD editorial decisions?

These are just, in essence, longer promotional messages. They are not editorial products.

In keeping with VOSD’s history of organizational transparency, all Community Partners will be displayed as paid sponsors. VOSD will promote Community Partners and Partner Voices stories in clearly defined display ads on the VOSD website. And they will not show as stories in our story feed.

For content to be published on the Partner Voices website, it must meet the established VOSD criteria.

  1. Partner Voices is a place where local nonprofit organizations can tell their stories and raise awareness. We employ a unique storytelling technique and may work to revise some submissions to protect the Partner Voices look and feel.
  2. Content should be interesting and showcase opportunities for San Diego residents to get involved.
  3. Content should avoid making boastful claims or casting dispersions on other businesses and organizations.
  4. Partner Voices shall not be a hub for sales pitches, press releases and classifieds.
