The guys who brought the $5k Christmas bonus giveaway for non-profit agencies earlier this winter have concocted a far grander offer they are rolling out and it could be a tremendous shot in the arm for the marketing and branding of the next lucky non-profit agency selected at the end of the month.
David Holt and Patrick Bosse, co-presidents of Holt Bosse, a full-service marketing firm based in St. Joseph, announced today the inauguration of their company’s first ever “Make a Mark” campaign. The new initiative will award up to $50,000 in free marketing services to one area nonprofit during the 2018 calendar year. Applications for the reverse RFP are available at holtbosse.com/mark and are due by February 28.
David Holt says, “Since opening in 2014, our company has had fun strategizing and creating materials for numerous nonprofits in Southwest Michigan.” Thus, he says “This year we’d like to help one area nonprofit make a bigger mark by dedicating up to $50,000 worth of our time and skills to their marketing efforts.”
The donated services can be applied toward boosting the recipient’s annual marketing budget, kick-starting a capital campaign or getting the word out about a new program or services, fundraising, etc. Holt said services covered by the “Make a Mark” campaign include strategic, media and public relations plans as well as development and creation of websites, social media campaigns, digital, print, radio and television advertising, direct mail, billboards and more.
Bosse says any organization with nonprofit status can apply, but special consideration will be given to nonprofits with limited funding streams for their marketing budgets. As he notes, “We understand that many area nonprofits must earmark most of their donated dollars and grants to direct services and operations, leaving little money available for marketing.” So, Bosse notes, “This campaign will help one organization make a greater impact telling their story this year.”
