Where is All the Cause Marketing with Faith-Based Nonprofits?

Cause Related Marketing

In Feb 2013, I got an email from a remarkable student at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill who had an intriguing question: why isn’t there more cause marketing between sponsors and faith-based nonprofits? Marshele is a grad student in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC, the executive director of a faith-based nonprofit, the author of four books, the 28-Year Wife of a U.S.

Faith in Facebook: A Success Story

Susan Citro from The Nature Conservancy offered to answer a few questions so that we can all have better success with our use of Facebook.

Having Faith in Strangers

Marketing for Nonprofits

Maybe this is another gift of our Connected Age - having faith in strangers. I had the nicest experience today. I received a call from Avi Kaplan, a recent college graduate looking for his first "real" job and doing some networking in DC. I have to admit getting a call from a stranger who wants to meet for coffee is a little off-putting. But once we started talking it was clear that we "travel" in the same online circles and this is why I decided to meet.

A reflection on working with faith and doubt

Nonprofit Marketing Blog

If you’re trying to hit a goal, you have days where you are full of faith. Dennis Palumbo says we often think of faith and doubt as the angel and devil, perched on separate shoulders, vying to dominate our mind. I’d put it this way: Faith helps us soldier on - and doubt challenges us to do better. We need the vanity (or faith) of believing we can change something for the better.

Research: Just how much do faith, ethnicity, politics and age affect giving?

Nonprofit Marketing Blog

Making sweeping assumptions about donors and activists is dangerous. Our guesses are often wrong, and that’s why getting to know our supporters is critical to effectively engaging them. I recently posted some fascinating information on ethnicity and online behavior; now there’s a study on various donors by religion, political persuasion, ethnicity and age and it, too, may reveal some surprising things.
