About Us

Nonprofit Marketing Guide helps nonprofit communicators learn their jobs, love their work, and lead their teams.

We want you to be effective and happy in your communications work so that your nonprofit can be successful in changing the world for the better. We also want you to keep your professionalism and energy in the nonprofit sector, knowing that you could very well make more money in the corporate world.

That’s why we focus not only on the most effective marketing and communications tactics and strategies for nonprofit, but also on your personal wellness and growth in the work.

How We Are Different

We are a training and coaching company. That’s all we do.

Unlike most webinar providers in our sector, we are not using training to upsell you on software or consulting services. The training and coaching are our only services.

Public service is in our DNA. We (Kivi and Kristina) are sisters who come from a long line of public servants. Our elders include members of the Armed Forces, a nurse, a librarian, and clergy. Our spouses are a nonprofit executive director and a high school teacher. So while Nonprofit Marketing Guide is a private business that supports our two families, our desire to serve and to contribute to your success are at the center of our business model and world view.

  • Understanding and Empathy

    We are constantly listening to what nonprofit communicators need and empathize with them about all of the challenges of working in the nonprofit sector. Even though we are thought leaders in the nonprofit sector, we understand that our lived experiences and “our way” are not inherently more valuable than yours or anyone else’s.

  • Enthusiastic Problem Solving

    We approach problem solving with creativity and enthusiasm. We enjoy geeking out on process or technology when it leads to making nonprofit communicators’ lives easier or your work more successful.

  • Being Direct and Pragmatic

    While we constantly cheer for and defend nonprofit communicators, we also believe in being authentic, honest, and direct, even when conversations are hard. We are not particularly interested in theory. Instead, we focus on real-world practice and results. We never want to waste your time because we know you have little to spare.

  • Living Our Lives in Draft

    We make mistakes and get it wrong. But rather than quickly moving on, we learn as we go. Our next attempt will always be better than our last because we are committed to constant learning and doing better for ourselves and for you.
