Nonprofit Communications

Build a brand with real impact.

A brand is the sum of what other people think and feel about you – and you can do a lot to influence their perception. Your brand needs to connect with the people who care about your mission.

But it’s hard to get someone’s attention because it’s noisy out there. Your future supporters need help finding you and when they do find you, they need to instantly understand what you do. Professional communication design is among the most powerful, cost-effective tools you can use to make it happen.

It’s been our strength for more than 25 years.

Taking your mission and purpose as our main inspiration, To the Point crafts verbal and visual communications unique to your organization. As strategic, big-picture thinkers, we love to dive into creative challenges, and our goal is to develop consistent, compelling and culturally relevant brands that truly stand apart.

Success Story

Housecall Providers Uses Communications to Meet Needs

Housecall Providers was having difficulty recruiting sufficient staff to serve its homebound, mostly elderly clients. Through a strategic communications plan, To the Point used a multimedia approach to telling Housecall Provider’s unique service model story. Housecall Providers was able to refine its recruiting campaign and find the right people. Staff size tripled over three years and turnover was reduced.

Success Story

YMCA of the Columbia-Willamette Turns 150

A national nonprofit with a local presence needed an outside design team to collaborate with staff to create key brand elements for a major anniversary. To the Point brought our branding expertise to work with staff on the project. We created the framework for the YMCA’s print and digital suite of collateral, beginning with the 150-year anniversary logo, which is the centerpiece for the overall campaign. View our work with them.
