This past year has revealed that nonprofit organizations are more important than ever and have provided valuable resources to help those affected by the global pandemic. Nonprofit marketing partnerships have been instrumental in the fight against COVID-19. With vaccines now being distributed and quarantine restrictions slowly lifting, nonprofits will continue their mission of creating a better world.
From a marketing perspective, nonprofits occupy a unique space in the industry given that nonprofit organizations can truly partner with anyone. A nonprofit can work with a QSR brand just as readily as it can work with a movie studio. Each of the below initiatives represents a nonprofit marketing partnership opportunity for your brand.
