For over ten years I have been designing for local nonprofits by helping raise funds to expand their reach within the community. By creating direct mail campaigns, creating brochures, event campaigns and capital campaigns – branded for each fundraising goal – goals have been met and exceeded multiple times over.
Leelanau Christian Neighbors (LCN) is an organization that serves residents in Leelanau County by providing food for the hungry and aiding those who have inadequate resources to respond to emergencies in their lives. In 2017 they were looking to expand their headquarters to a larger and more central location in Lake Leelanau, but they needed help raising the funds to do so. Together we created a capital campaign direct mail explaining the need and how a donation can benefit the giver and soon after the gifts started rolling in. With this campaign, LCN was able to collect enough gifts to fully purchase the building, improvements and surrounding land – mortgage free. Since, LCN has grown in service and in programs.
