Your brand is the way that your organization is defined and interacts with your community and donors, but too many nonprofits struggle to create a cohesive brand or believe that they have a brand at all. Without a solid visual identity, and clear and consistent messaging, you are only making it more difficult for donors to engage with your mission. In this episode, Eric Ressler, founder, and creative director at Cosmic sits down with the Non-Profit Digital Success podcast host David Pisarek for a conversation about the mindset nonprofits need when thinking about branding and other aspects of their digital presence, and how beneficial this can be for them.

“Starting to invest in that infrastructure from a strategic standpoint, as well as a tactical standpoint and a
