Ultimately, all of those avenues of impact engage people toward a goal that ends with financial support. This is why whole teams of staff and volunteers are dedicated to development, keeping the organization focused on working toward its mission.

It’s no coincidence that you’re seeing more and more for-profit companies participate in charitable giving and volunteering, and take a moral stance on big issues.

Posted by Joshua Weir on Oct 20, 2020 9:30:00 AM

 

Nonprofits, NGOs, and charitable organizations have transitioned heavily in the marketplace to being forces for awareness and action in Western Culture. Whereas once, marketing was focused solely on fundraising events, membership drives, or various development pitches, nonprofit branding has become a significant force of influence, as social good has become intertwined with our daily lives. As a nonprofit, the brand has the potential to be the driving force or a disassociative challenge toward your goals of creating awareness, development, or public support for your mission.

5 WAYS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS CAN CONNECT WITH A YOUNGER AUDIENCE

Posted by Joshua Weir on Sep 29, 2020 7:30:00 AM

Then again, wasn't it the children of the 50's listening to that raucous rock and roll their parents found so offensive? That's why today we are looking at how to reach the up and comers in society, in a way that doesn't feel like mom or dad sitting down to have "the talk."
