Charity marketing is the process of using marketing techniques to raise awareness and donations for charitable organisations. Its objectives may vary, but typically they include increasing donations, promoting the charity’s work, and recruiting new volunteers or members. Charity marketing can be done in a variety of ways, including advertising, PR, and online campaigns. It can be difficult to measure the success of charity marketing campaigns, but there are some methods that can be used, such as tracking website traffic and social media engagement.

Your charity’s brand is one of its most valuable assets. A strong, consistent brand will help you to raise awareness of your charity, attract donations and volunteers, and differentiate yourself from other charities. We can help you to develop a strong, recognisable brand that will make a lasting impression.
With your branding established we can help with the rollout ensuring a consistent look and feel is achieved across all your marketing materials, from your website to your social media channels and printed literature.
Case Study: Bishop’s Stortford Food Bank
A local Food Bank charity approached us and asked for a more recognisable brand. Something that would get noticed and would be easy to apply to marketing material.
During the design process it was decided to offer variations on the logo, as well as different colourways and typeface style we felt some could have a graphic of a ‘food package’. Bright colours were used to give the brand a strong visual impact.
The strapline was from their previous logo and it needed to be integrated into all of the designs.
We provided various options for the client to consider, a few examples are shown below. Once a preferred option was chosen, we created variations of the logo, suitable for different uses. We then supplied the logo in a number of file formats for full flexibility and compatibility.
The new brand was used as part of the new website design we created for them, as well as other marketing material. For example, the logo has been printed on a simple pop-up banner. Moving forward we will continue to support the rollout of their new logo across a range of marketing collateral.
Your website is often the first point of contact between your charity and potential donors or volunteers. It’s important that your website makes a good impression and is easy to use. We can help you develop a responsive, user-friendly website that showcases your charity’s work in the best possible light.
We can tailor your website’s focus to help drive key marketing goals, such as fundraising, awareness campaigns, or brand building helping to ensure that your website is an effective marketing tool.
