Fundraising Donor Image - 496x496

January might be a little late/early to discuss fundraising marketing, but I just came across some survey data that could help nonprofits to budget and plan their 2015 fundraising campaigns.

According to a YouGov giving report, half of Americans surveyed have given money to a church, non-profit or charitable organizations in the past 12 months. The above chart summarizes some of the key survey results, but I think two numbers really jump out. (more…)

Magnets – Turning Nonprofit Marketers into Superheroes

 

Breakthrough Page

Magnetic Attractions is taking their magnet marketing and direct mail solutions on a little summer road trip. We’re in Washington, DC exhibiting at the 9th Annual Bridge to Integrated Marketing and Fundraising Conference.  We’re handing out our new Nonprofit Catalog, sample magnets and a special photo frame created just for the Bridge Conference.  More importantly, we’re spreading the word how magnets and magnetic direct mail can help you become a nonprofit marketing superhero.

From a simple 2×2 square magnet and photo frames to Laminated Postcards and Outdoor Magnets, our products can work alone, or combined with your online efforts to help you succeed in today’s competitive world.

Click here to read how our magnets can help you engage donors as thank you gifts, fundraising appeals and volunteer recruitment.   You can even request a free sample pack while you are there.  Then give us a call at (800) 521-4773 to talk to our magnet experts.  They aren’t going to help you leap tall building in a single bound, but they will help you attract and retain donors without blowing up the budget.

 

 

 

 

Magnetic Attractions goes to Washington

Booth PhotoLook out Washington,  Magnetic Attractions’ summer roadtrip is heading to our nation’s capital.  No, we’re not there to take in the Smithsonian , or improve the approval ratings for Congress (like that’s possible).  Instead, we’re bringing our promotional magnetsmagnetic mailers and BigMag magnetic postcards to those nonprofit marketers attending the 2013 Bridge to Integrated Marketing Conference.

This is our first year exhibiting at the “Bridge”, and we’re excited to show off our product line, especially our turnkey direct mail offerings, and we’re going to share that excitement with the fundraising pros that stop by booth 327.

Now, I know what you might be mumbling under your breath. “Direct Mail.  Didn’t that die already?”  Well, I’m thrilled to say direct mail isn’t dead.  You know who else is thrilled that direct mail is still a vibrant marketing tool?  Those customers, donors and prospects that like and engage with direct mail campaigns in their mailbox.  According to some recent survey data, you might be surprised at the effectiveness of direct mail in the United States.   (more…)

Move Over Cookie, Magnets Make the Perfect Fun(d) Raiser

I need a showFundraising Magnet-UC Davis of hands.  How many of you are up to your eyes in wrapping paper, cookie dough and magazine subscriptions that are typical of most PTO fundraisers?  Anyone? Anyone?

I am, and I’m here to hopefully plant the seeds of change.   Now, believe me, I’m not anti-cookie-dough, (one look in my freezer could prove that).  But, when you have twins in elementary school, you can only eat, wrap and read so much.

So, if you’re a school, church or organization looking to raise needed funds, what can you do to reach families like mine looking for a little fun, a little excitement and a little less stuff cluttering their house?

Why not try promotional magnets from Magnetic Attractions?  Really, magnets are small and will not cause unwanted weight gain, household clutter or more waste for the landfill.  Take a closer look, and you’ll see magnets have all the characteristics of the perfect fundraiser product. (more…)
