A clear, relatable brand is the key to attracting clients, staff, board, volunteers, donors, and other support and resources to your organization. A brand is the customer’s experience with you. It is the look of your materials, the voice in your communications, and the feeling evoked by anyone who interacts with your organization. You must consider not only what you say and do but also how.
