They recently started Constant Contact email marketing through the Dudley & Nunez Communications Giving Back Program.

“We’re looking forward to using email marketing to develop deeper relationships with our constituents,” said Gary McDonald, Executive Director. “Email will help us have more meaningful contact in more significant ways.”

“We couldn’t have done it without Maureen and the Giving Back Program,” said McDonald. “It made getting started a no-risk situation.”

So happy we could help, Gary. We are delighted we could be part of such a worthy cause.

Koinonia Home for TeensFor over 30 years, the Koinonia Home For Teens has been bringing hope to at-risk youth. For the last four to five years, they’ve been preparing to start email marketing to get people more involved in their program but needed a little help to get started. They found that help through the Dudley & Nunez Communications Giving Back Program.

“We’re extremely grateful for this program and excited to start using Constant Contact as we believe it will be the perfect tool to help us,” said Camilla Ryland, Office Manager for Koinonia Home for Teens. “The Giving Back Program is of immense value to our nonprofit. First, the donation to pay for the service was a big help to the bottom line of our nonprofit. But more importantly, the connection with Maureen is really helping us to go forward and tackle something that had seemed like a big mountain to us before. Maureen is very encouraging. I’m now confident I can go forward and succeed with Constant Contact.”

Glad to make things easier for you, Camilla! Thanks for applying for the Giving Back Program.

 

Giving Back Program Brings Tears of Gratitude

Designing for a Difference.png_srz_p_434_248_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_png_srz copyWe recently held our second annual Nonprofit Super Summit. It was here that we met Latiya Gholar, the Executive Director for Designing for a Difference — a nonprofit that teaches fashion design to the community. They also have a fashion based after-school program that promotes self-esteem and creativity.

After the Summit, Gholar applied for our Giving Back Program.

“I can see how Constant Contact is really going to help me organize my contacts and promote our organization,” said Gholar. “As Maureen walked me through the setup, it actually brought tears to my eyes to see how everything is done for me within the Constant Contact software.”

“And the training provided by Maureen was a huge timesaver and great motivation,” said Gholar. “With Maureen as an accountability partner, I was able to take the steps I needed to go forward.”

Glad to help, Latiya! Thanks for being part of the Giving Back Program.

Smiling Girl with portable lightGiving Back Program recipient Unite to Light had been sending out communications just a few times a year. President Dawn O’Bar, however, was looking for better ways to spread the message of her organization that provides reliable solar lights to impoverished students around the world.

“From Maureen, I learned there were many ways I could improve our email marketing,” said O’Bar.  “For example, she recommended cutting down the length of our newsletter and communicating with our readers more frequently.”

When Unite to Light decided to switch to Constant Contact, Dawn found the Giving Back Program made it easy. “Maureen provided a well-paced orientation — customized to my specific needs,” said O’Bar. “She was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.”

Unite to Light also appreciated the donation through the Giving Back Program.  “The reimbursement to our nonprofit is huge,” said O’Bar. “We do not have any extra money in the budget, so it was great to be able to try Constant Contact without any risk.”

So happy we could be of help, Dawn. We’re delighted we could be part of such a great worldwide cause.
