How many FREE resources and tools does your nonprofit marketing team and staff have at their fingertips?
Over the years, we’ve noticed how hard it is for nonprofits to gain the tools that could make their job easier.
This is such a shame since streamlining processes saves money, time, and your staff’s resources. Every nonprofit is focused on stewarding these resources well, and yet they are the organizations that find themselves strapped.
Small nonprofits can’t hire full-time designers. They can’t buy Photoshop to crop or edit images for their Facebook posts or upcoming event’s invitation flyers.
Do you ever find yourself in this position?
We are here to help! Here is a list of FREE resources for nonprofit fundraisers and marketers.
These resources span from media enhancement to software to online marketing strategy tools.
