What Others Are Saying

I wanted to let you know that you have just re-injected and inspired me! I have been working in a not-for-profit for three years and I am the ‘jack of all trades’ here!

I direct the events, marketing, ambassadors and I am responsible for all sponsorships. We hold the biggest community bike rides in NSW and your podcast just gave me some sort of technological cuddle, to say you are doing ok, you are on the right track… keep going!

I have had a lot of knocks lately and staff turnover is a really hard thing! So I just wanted to say, thank you so much.

Podcast – How to Find Sponsors for Your Non-Profit

How to Find Sponsors for Your Nonprofit

This is an interview by NonProfit Ally - a Canadian organisation set up specifically to help people understand how to start, build and maintain a non-profit. In this podcast, Abby shares how to prepare a sponsorship marketing plan. Many organisations don't realize is that the money corporate sponsors use to sponsor a non-profit comes from their marketing budget. There is no separate sponsorship 'bucket'. Abby talks about how to discover your target audience and line it up with the interest of a potential sponsor. Using real life scenarios, Abby walks us through how she has helped non-profits raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in sponsorship money.
