We empower nonprofits to deliver greater impact through our proven expertise in areas such as marketing strategy, fundraising communications and mission-centered digital experiences.
As partners, we identify opportunities, solve recurring problems and gain new insights that make them more relevant. And we get there through a spirit of collaboration with boards, leadership, staff and those served.
Nonprofit expertise shaped by OrgStory
OrgStory was founded in 2012 with the sole purpose of helping nonprofit organizations raise more money, attract more clients, increase awareness, change perceptions and impact change in their communities. In 2019, Magnetize acquired OrgStory to advance its strategic and creative expertise for client partners in the nonprofit industry.
All this to say, we know nonprofits, and we are committed to inspiring the sector and providing organizations with the support they deserve.
We know nonprofits
We are strategic story partners for passionate nonprofits.
We’re focused on mission-driven work
We’re a team of strategists and marketers who know what makes your nonprofit tick and unique. Our OrgStory team offers capabilities specific to nonprofit organizations to help them advance their missions.
- Strategic Roadmapping
We help organizations identify the “big questions” facing their future, then develop organizational, programmatic, and operational strategies and action steps to ensure all parts of the organization are in sync and ready to face them.
- Fundraising Strategy
We build campaigns to advance organizational fundraising goals, from raising awareness to engaging a community of value-aligned supporters and influencing new and increased giving.
- Supporter Journey Mapping
We use data and insights to help map supporter segments’ – including donors, funders, volunteers and program partners – interactions with an organization, from first communications to engagement to action.
- Story Creation
We help identify and develop written and visual stories to elevate organizational purpose and compel supporting audiences to think, believe and act.
- Campaign Planning and Management
We leverage audience journeys and related marketing strategies to develop a plan that launches and elevates campaigns into their place in the world. We design, place and measure performance for campaign creative across traditional and digital marketing platforms.
- Technology Integration
We help identify software that enables fundraising, payments, registration processes, constituent management and communications; then, integrate them with user-facing digital platforms like websites and social platforms to improve data sharing and ongoing communications.
- Ambassador Development
We develop training and communications tools for board members, junior board members, volunteers and staff that enable them to evangelize an organization’s mission and create opportunities for meaningful interactions among their peers and networks.
