Non-profit copywriter & brand consultant: doing good… better!

A non-profit copywriter & non-profit branding consultant helps you better understand how to resonate with your stakeholders and create messaging that matters. The days of quiet and low-key are over. You need high-energy concepts and copy, a name and a position that makes them stop and take notice. Essentially, I apply a “capitalist” model to not-for-profit marketing campaigns. If we wouldn’t run it in a business setting – not powerful enough, not original enough, not compelling enough – why would we run it when it matters even more? Advancing your non-profit brand means working with a non-profit copywriter who knows position and core messaging set organizational trajectories and seal organizational destinies.

Not-for-profit brands need a copywriter who knows how to sell.

Too often, non-profit copywriters and non-profit brands answer to a lower bar when it comes to their communications, especially their messaging. Now, obviously, there are tight budgets with which to contend. In my opinion, though, that’s even further reason to get our brand marketing houses in order. That fundamental work exerts an exponential influence throughout every marketing piece you’ll create in coming years. But even when non-profits can’t do full scale brand discovery and strategy, they can still be working with a copywriter who messages more emphatically and refuses to bring anything less than full heart and mind to the projects. Not-for-profits may not be able to pay the dollars I like, but I find the experiences irreplaceably rewarding.

Not pro bono; discounted non-profit copywriting & non-profit brand consulting work

Intense competition for dollars, marketplace confusion (healthcare and community organizations) and a tendency to peddle the maudlin (charities) are just three reasons why marketing directors at non-profits need to be upping their brand marketing and non-profit copywriting games. I can’t give it all away, but I am here to help. Just let me know what you’re up for… and what we’re up against! 310.826.8518


Stanford’s Social Innovation Review published a good article in 2012 that helps directors, marketers, employees, volunteers and other stakeholders better understand the role of the nonprofit brand in change-making organizations.

A common misconception is that branding and marketing are the same thing. This article by The Nonprofit Village explains the difference between branding and marketing and why it’s essential for the nonprofit to get this right.
