“How can I start a Nonprofit Marketing Plan?”

Here you’ll find seven of the first steps you should take when starting a nonprofit.

  1. The first step to starting a nonprofit is articulating the problems your organization will address. You’ll make the biggest difference when you’re specific about your scope and the demographic your nonprofit will serve. Most importantly: before you start your own nonprofit, make sure there’s a need for you, otherwise your organization won’t be sustainable.
  2. Create a marketing plan to recruit donors and volunteers for your organization. Work on your online presence, because your nonprofit web design and outreach on social media is especially important in starting a nonprofit.

After completing these steps, your nonprofit is ready to bring donations in and start making a difference in your community.
