For a nonprofit organization, sound communication of one's mission and brand is key to leveraging funding resources. However, before this communication can start, the organization needs to first recognize, understand and internalize its mission branding strategy. As a nonprofit leader, you will need to take the lead in becoming that organizational brand manager. This program will provide you with that foundation.
Participants will learn from Kellogg’s premier faculty – experts who have written the books on branding. The program includes in-depth exploration of the concept of a brand and tools for building and strengthening brands to impact their organizations. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own ideas of brand and what it could mean for their individual nonprofits.
