Four ways a strong brand can drive corporate giving
Thursday Feb 23, 2017
A strong brand provides countless benefits for nonprofit fundraising programs. It helps organizations stand out from their peers, focuses fundraisers and other communicators on the messages they need to drive action, and provides the vision for a better future that inspires supporters to give.
A strong brand can also give you the edge you need to attract corporate donors. With $24.5 billion donated by corporations last year, that’s no small consideration. Here are four ways that your brand can help support your corporate giving program:
A clearly defined brand will help your organization generate stronger, more trusting relationships with your supporters, a key ingredient in building engaged communities. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs want to do good, but they also want to promote their own brand and connect with consumers. If your audience is highly engaged, corporate donors can feel confident that their support will get noticed. Because people like to support companies that do good, a recognized connection with your organization can help them build trust and find new, loyal customers within your community.
Corporate donors want to support good causes, but they also know that the nonprofit they choose to associate their brand with reflects back onto them. So, it is equally true that the values associated with a nonprofit brand will reflect on your corporate donors, and if your brand isn’t sufficiently professional or reliably expressed, you are starting at a disadvantage.
CSR programs operate based on defined philanthropic priorities, which are typically selected based on the causes’ affinities with the company’s business interests. For example, Disney’s corporate citizenship program focuses on causes benefiting children. Other companies, like Google, that focus on organizations using technology to combat a range of issues, can get fairly niche. Having a clear mission statement—which is a core piece of your brand identity—as well as key messages articulated in concise language will help you appeal to a CSR team.
Well-defined brands, whether nonprofit or corporate, express a clear personality that helps them to distinguish themselves. Corporations prefer to support organizations that align with their brand’s personality, so having a distinct personality that aligns with a corporate brand can make your nonprofit more attractive.
- On Being an Amazing Boss
By Nick - Tuesday Apr 2, 2013
Here’s a very short, to the point top 10 list on being a good Boss, from Kevin Daum in Inc Magazine. Being a boss is hard. People don’t naturally wish to have one. And not everyone aspires to be one. But most people are anxious to follow a good leader, and most organizations live and die … Continue reading "On Being an Amazing Boss"
- US deportations of Europeans could exceed last fiscal year
By PHILIP MARCELO, Associated Press - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
In Chicago, Polish and Irish community groups say they're seeing inquiries about immigration and citizenship-related services surge as people seek legal protections.Europeans comprise about 440,000 of the estimated 11 million people living illegally in the United States, according to the Migration Policy Institute.Since just before Trump was elected last November, the U.S. has deported 167,350 foreigners, compared with 240,255 in all of fiscal year 2016.Immigrant advocates say they've been urging individuals to know their rights if they're stopped and for parents to make arrangements for their children in the event they're detained."The worst aspect of these numbers from our perspective is that our community organizations do not know who is being deported and why, and are unable to send immigration attorneys to assist them," says Dmitri Daniel Glinski, president of the Russian-Speaking Community Council of Manhattan and the Bronx.Davydov says the experience of being detained — and the uncertainty it has thrust into his asylum application — has left him feeling vulnerable.Advocates complain Trump, in taking a hardline against immigration scofflaws, is sweeping up many hardworking, taxpaying people, many of whom have raised children who are now U.S. citizens.Many of those living here illegally were lulled into a "false sense of security" by the Obama years, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors more restrictive immigration policies.The bigger issue is that the Trump administration is wasting really valuable law enforcement resources on many people who aren't a public safety threat, whether they're Irish, Latino, Asian or otherwise.
Who Decides Your Communications Workload?
Monday Nov 28, 2016
Kivi Leroux Miller is president of Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com and the award-winning author of two books, “The Nonprofit Marketing Guide: High-Impact, Low-Cost Ways to Build Support for Your Good Cause” and “Content Marketing for Nonprofits: A Communications Map for Engaging Your Community, Becoming a Favorite Cause, and Raising More Money.”
Kivi and I share a passion and similar perspective about helping nonprofit communicators do their best work. Her Communications Trends Report is one of the few data-driven resources out there: I consider it a must-read. In this guest post, Kivi gives us a sneak peak into her most recent findings. - Sarah
Who decides the priorities for your communications team and controls the workload?
Do you know how that compares to other nonprofits?
We are attempting to answer those questions for you in the 2017 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report.
Based on preliminary results from more than 600 nonprofits, there’s no one clear answer.
The most frequent response is that an integrated team of communications and fundraising staff jointly decide on the workload.
But that’s followed closely by other models where the executive director determines the workload, where the communications department acts as an “internal agency,” and where the communications team itself defines its workload.
Do you think the approach in your organization is under-represented or over-represented in these results?
Everyone who takes the survey will receive a free copy of the report in January and be invited to a free webinar a week before the results are released.
