Eau Claire Nonprofit Roundtable: The Strategy of Nonprofit Branding

May 23, 2017 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Thrun ChristinaWhen we say brand, most people think of their logo. But a logo is not a brand. An effective brand is one that clearly communicates your mission through your messaging. But how do you develop a strong nonprofit brand without breaking the bank? In this session, participants will gain an understanding of what branding is and what it isn’t, as well as some ideas for how to look at branding their own organization. Come prepared to think critically about your own organization and to look at how you can implement a strong brand that communicates your mission for immediate impact and long-term success.
