Time and budget strapped

Lack of time and resources and tight budgets were by far the greatest limiting factors for nonprofit marketing success. 

Relevancy always beats reach

Channels only matter if your community is there.

Where are nonprofit leaders, marketers, and experts engaging with their audiences the most? Unsurprisingly, email ranked the highest. With nonprofits statistically having some of the highest open rates and engagement through the channel, it just makes sense.





Dipping into digital

Last year, 45% of those surveyed launched initial efforts in digital ads. And in 2023, 39.1% more will launch digital ads while 38.9% will try social ads for the first time.

The short and straight road to digital

Digital channels are the clear winner when it comes to advertising, although spending on partner distribution has replaced direct mail for the number two spot.
