Looking for a way to support your community and extend your marketing? Want to "give back" while getting ahead?
Nonprofit and community organizations can make perfect promotional partners, but there are crucial differences between the for-profit and not-for-profit worlds. Savvy marketers who can transcend those differences and create win-win partnerships that serve both mission and marketing can open up exciting new opportunities.
Partnering with a nonprofit requires a different approach to marketing. But for businesses that value giving back and making a difference, a for-profit/non-profit marketing partnership can be a way to change the world and grow your business.
