Looking to develop your nonprofit’s own regular newsletter? With a hefty experience of creating those under my belt, I’m pretty excited to give you a hand with yours!

To begin, you should know that newsletters can be a lot of work. Creating one would require you to regularly do these three things: gather content, draft a layout and then send it out. Sounds simple, right? Well, it’s supposed to be! But, let’s be honest, eventually it gets a bit tedious and time-consuming if you’re not using the right tools. But don't worry though, I'll help you sort that out through Mailchimp.

Did you know that you can already accomplish a lot of office work with just your browser alone? From creating documents to animating videos, there are now actually tons of cost and installation free, online tools out there that you can access just by connecting to the internet.

So, if you’re either waiting for your new programs, or, simply just looking for cost-effective alternatives to tap in to, here’s a diverse list of tools that can help keep you productive either way.

There is little argument that email and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are fast becoming mandatory tools for supporter outreach. These communication channels provide nonprofit organizations with an immediate and effective way to solicit, cultivate, and engage donor support.

From a pure fundraising standpoint, email and social media channels are only effective when the recipient is able to respond immediately to a CTA (call to action). At best, your CTA message is going to be read once, so if that message is compelling enough to cause the recipients to donate, then they must be able to do so immediately.

So what can you do?
