What do you benefit most from being a member of NCPC?
I’m Laura Roden, owner of Graphic-Assist. We provide graphic design services including annual reports, fundraising campaigns, donor, sponsor solicitations, and more. We partner with nonprofits and their strategic partners to support their fundraising and marketing while strengthening their relationships with their donors, board members, and volunteers.
What is your Mission?
We help nonprofits maximize their fundraising revenue. We communicate the value of their impact in the community using the same creative strategies and solutions the largest national organizations use.
What do you offer to the community?
With almost 20 years experience designing for corporations, small to medium businesses, and nonprofits, we’ve worked with national retail brands to sell their products in markets of all sizes. Our current clients benefit from that same level of graphic design experience. We specialize in working with nonprofits so they can use these major-league strategies to solicit support and donations from their communities.
For the last 10 years, we have been using our skills and expertise to help local and regional nonprofits maximize the return they get on their outreach and fundraising campaigns. We’re passionate about giving nonprofits with smaller footprints the ability to use the same strategies major organizations do. We send a monthly email sharing best practices, ideas, and even free templates. In May, we’ll be sharing a checklist of the 10 photos you need to take at your next fundraising event. Anyone is welcome to add themselves to the list here.
What changes/opportunities have occurred due to COVID-19?
The shift to virtual/remote work has encouraged nonprofits from all over the country to partner with Graphic Assist. We exceeded our goal for 2020-2021 to double the number of nonprofit clients and partners.
How to you benefit most from being a member of NCPC?
We are always trying to learn more about what our local nonprofits need and develop solutions to support them. Membership in NCPC gives us a chance to network with individuals who are actively serving our community. Meeting new people who are doing this important work inspires our team with new ideas and opportunities to give back.
What event/program or campaign do you have coming up that you would like to share with our readers?
We design custom annual reports for our clients, which are used as a multi-platform marketing tool. We want to help smaller nonprofits who might assume they cannot afford a custom document, design a report as well. We are in the process of creating a portfolio of templates that nonprofits of any size can use for fundraising and community building. If you would like to be notified when the templates are released, please email Laura: firstname.lastname@example.org.
