Non Profits


Generating funds and reaching new donors

As a nonprofit organization you rely heavily on reaching new donors which generates additional funds that are critical to running your non-profit organization. The way to develop a strong relationship with contributors, the board of directors and prospective donors is by creating high-quality printed materials that professionally, emotionally and adequately convey your message.

As a non-profit organization you have many projects throughout the year where printed material is needed, these could include:

  • Annual campaigns
  • Special events
  • Capital campaigns
  • Brochures
  • Newsletters
  • Postcards
  • Posters and flyers
  • Thank-you cards
  • Table tents
  • Event tickets
  • Board meetings
  • Direct marketing
  • Silent auctions
  • Parties and galas

These are just a few of the many things a non-profit can use to communicate with both it’s members and it’s potential donors. How those messages comes across in your printed material can be critical to your non profit’s success.

Printing solutions on a budget

As a printer who specializes in non-profit organizations, at Griffith Printing we clearly understand your budget concerns and desire to obtain the absolute best possible pricing. But as you well know, for your non-profit to generate funds, it has to spend and invest money in the things and actions that can make a difference … and your printed materials and the printer you choose can make a big difference in the success of any campaign.

But how do you get the best quality printing for your non-profit at the lowest possible price? Here are some things to consider:

  1. Create a long term relationship with a printer. The cost of searching for the lowest possible price every time you need something printed could cost you dearly in the end.
  2. Design costs: Graphic design costs can end up being hundreds of dollars an hour. Be sure to choose a printer that offers not only great design, which should be a given, but they also should include the cost of the design in the overall bid … helping you keep your costs down!
  3. Choose a printer that offers not-for-profit rates.
  4. If you need last-minute printing done, having a long-term relationship with a printer gives them a leg up, as they will know your style and understand your needs better. They can also keep the price lower on last minute emergency needs as well!
  5. Direct mail services: Choose a printer that can be a one-stop shop regarding all your direct marketing needs.

Make an impact … make a difference with your printing

As a nonprofit organization you rely heavily on repeat donations to fund your cause. It is essential that you build and develop a strong relationship with your contributors, and one of the best ways to do that is with regular printed pieces that create emotions and encourage urgency for your donors.

A few of the Non-Profit Organizations we work with:

Non-profit newsletters

Not-for-profit organizations like yourself often utilize some type of monthly or quarterly newsletter to keep donors, board of directors and prospective donors up to date on all of your programs, and what’s happening within your organization.
