Submit a news tip

Has your covenant partner had a home dedication, a mortgage payoff, a great group of volunteers, or other newsy event you would like to share with a larger audience? Let us know — and we’ll help spread the good news!

Submission form (covenant partners only)

Storytelling promotion fund

While we will not be awarding storytelling prizes this year, we do have a $1,000 fund to promote your storytelling efforts. Here’s how it works:

For each submission of information using our form at fullercenter.org/submitnews that results in a news article on the fullercenter.org home page, we will not only share the article in a Facebook post, but we also will purchase a Facebook ad (minimum of $10) promoting it in your area (generally within 25 miles of your primary location). Believe it or not, a mere $10 boost will get your news in front of hundreds of new faces on Facebook — and because the ad will be targeted to your specific area, they will be relevant faces.

And all you have to invest is a couple of minutes on this form.

Submissions chosen to become news articles will be selected at the sole discretion of VP of Communications Chris Johnson, cjohnson@fullercenter.org. However, he wants to share as many news articles as possible, and he would love to exhaust the $1,000 fund in 2023.

A few notes from Chris on submitting information to become news articles:

  • News is timely, recent and new. Events from weeks, months and years past are unlikely to be considered news.
  • Submissions that do not not include a link to photos or that are not followed by emailed photos (the form will prompt you at the end) are unlikely to be considered for news.
  • There is a place on the form for names. Be sure you have correct names and spellings.
  • What is considered “news” is subjective, and Chris’ background is in journalism, so his subjectivity is guided by “newsiness.”
    – According to Chris, things that would be considered news would include home dedications, mortgage burnings, a great experience with a US Builders team, a church youth group raising a bunch of money with a unique or fun project, etc.
    – Things Chris is unlikely to consider news would include getting an ordinary donation, speaking at a club, selecting a partner family, and — especially — something that happened well in the past.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Simply put, we can't share news we don't know about. With dozens of Fuller Center covenant partners across the United States and around the world, great stories can slip through the cracks unnoticed. I'd like to stop that ... with your help! By filling out this form when you have good news and photos to share, we can make sure we are collecting all of the great news out there. Some stories will be shared on social media, some in email and print newsletters, some on the website and some, well, all of the above. So, please, let us know your good news as it happens. If you have any questions, please email me at cjohnson@fullercenter.org.
Chris Johnson
Vice President of Communications
