Guidestar/Candid Profile Package
Did you know that many financial advisors use Guidestar/Candid profiles as a research tool to find non-profit beneficiaries for their clients?
Any non-profit with a tax exemption already has a profile on Guidestar. We will help you gain platinum status! This will help donors know that your non-profit is worthy of their support.
BONUS: Many of the elements of your Guidestar profile make excellent grant application copy!
Appeal Letter Package
Marketing experts say it takes between 3 – 8 “asks” to move a person to donate to your non-profit. Preparation helps an appeal raise so much more…and lays the groundwork for future giving. So, a successful appeal letter is part of an overall campaign, that includes a multi-channel approach and combines snail mail letters with emails, social media posts and even phone calls.
We’ll help you construct a plan that works for your non-profit! Start with a moving story, prime your audiences, and personalize your communications to maximize your results.
