avoid credits and Schedule a simple call instead. We discuss your fundraising/marketing plan

This call helps you determine the success of your current fundraising/marketing plan and how it is going to suit your needs into the future. Sometimes, a small tweak to a program makes a world of difference. Let’s find out!

“Nonprofit Cooperative” is a cause marketing campaign

A business (nonprofit or for-profit) takes this project on. Training and coaching to implement the program are available through SOAR for 1 year. This program does not resource credits at this time.


Small communities (county population under 30,000) put together nonprofit cooperatives to enhance individual success through group success. The program is spearheaded by a business becoming the “community connector.”


Businesses Benefit

The Nonprofit Cooperative relieves donor fatigue. People get tired of being asked over and over again for money. This happens regularly in small communities. It’s where the ratio of nonprofits to potential donors is magnified. The Nonprofit Cooperative lessens burnout for people. There’s a support system among peers and events cease to overlap unless they also benefit each other. People in the community see the benefit of unity as organizations involved in the Co-Op also gain credibility.

Cause marketing (“Nonprofit Cooperative”) enhances your community presence – cost for one year of development training and coaching is $1500.

Pay $1500 and get started today ($1200 for a year of coaching and $300 for materials)
