Creating social impact doesn’t happen overnight, full-time dedication is required. Nonprofit organizations are entrenched in their actions, pushing for change in their communities, and more often than not they lack the manpower, time and money necessary to market themselves effectively. Carter & Co. Communications understands these challenges and works closely with nonprofits to overcome them, creating a comprehensive strategic plan that draws attention and gives their charitable efforts the recognition they deserve.
Before establishing a volunteer base and gathering contributions, you must gain support for your cause. Carter & Co. Communications assists you in developing a message that builds awareness and raises brand visibility. If your nonprofit is new or needs a facelift, our team of talented designers can create eye-catching logos, brochures and other marketing materials to get you noticed. Telling your story to the community is our goal and we utilize both traditional and new media platforms to spread the word. We promote your nonprofit by increasing its web presence through social media and we strive to get organic media coverage for your organization and your events. Our team specializes in campaigning and event planning and employs these tools to maximize fundraising efforts. Together these strategies not only boost your public presence in the short-term, but forge meaningful and long-lasting impact.
Carter & Co. Communications understands that nonprofit organizations don’t have substantial marketing budgets--every cent spent must go toward furthering the organization’s mission in the community. We know you’re limited and that is why we offer our services at an affordable rate. We ensure that every marketing dollar is an investment that leads to greater donations and contributions from community partners.
Carter & Co. Communications founder Holly Carter has extensive experience expanding the reach of a variety of nonprofits. A cancer survivor, Holly was inspired to start her own non-profit organization, The Face of Cancer, in 2013. The Face of Cancer supports female cancer patients, coming alongside them to help address a particularly devastating part of their cancer battle--its effects of their physical appearance. The Face of Cancer is continuing to build a network of local firms who provide services that help restore a sense of femininity and beauty in cancer patients and survivors.
