Cumulatively, CreateAthon has helped more than 1,500 nonprofit organizations in North America by delivering approximately 3,200 pro bono marketing projects valued at $16.1 million.

About Pro Bono Service
Pro bono--short for pro bono publico, "for the public good"—refers to professional services delivered without expectation of a fee to organizations serving the social good. It is both a form of support for community organizations as well as an increasingly core part of the ethic of business professionals from design to HR and technology, who believe that high-quality professional services are too important to only be available to those who can afford them.

BOSTON, September 12, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Sappi Fine Paper North America today announced the official launch of Act Now! A Better Response to Direct Mail, a dynamic, educational resource that guides readers through the essential principles of creating effective mailings that deliver results. Act Now! showcases the strategies and techniques behind how direct mail can strike a uniquely delicate balance: the ability to package a message that will not only pique reader interest, but also ultimately drive consumer response. Sappi is debuting Act Now! at PRINT 13, being held September 8-12, 2013 in Chicago.
“In an increasingly virtual world, tangible forms of communication can cut through the noise and have significant impact, and because of this, the value of mail should not be underestimated,” said Jennifer Miller, EVP of Coated Business and Chief Sustainability Officer, Sappi Fine Paper North America. “The power of print combined with smart design elements that will increase engagement – folding, coating, integrated technology – is what makes direct mail more memorable for the recipient, and also shine in the marketing mix.”
Sappi’s ambition for this project was to clearly address the role of direct mail in an increasingly digital world while also designing a piece that captures the essence and excitement of how one feels when opening an engaging printed piece of mail.
By working closely with direct mail and format expert, Trish Witkowski of foldfactory.com, to drive the research and content that serves as the backbone of the guide, Sappi’s Act Now! resulted in an easy-to-use, original resource for defining and demonstrating the advantages of mail – including its return on investment. In fact, a recent study shows that direct mail brings in approximately $12 for every dollar invested.
“We put substantial effort into defining and demonstrating the process that is involved in getting the maximum achievable results out of mail, breaking it down into three distinct parts: strategy, format and analysis,” states Witkowski. “Anyone can get great results with mail at either end of the budget spectrum, and we’re giving you the formula for success.”
A Lesson in Style
Design firm VSA Partners was charged with the creative on the project, whose final format is a tailored box with a clever opening mechanism. The recipient unzips the package to find a useful guidebook as well as varied samples of real-world mail pieces that serve as unique case studies. From a card campaign for a local butcher that wants to educate its neighbors on sustainable practices, to a dimensional format for Facebook, the samples showcase a variety of options that will inspire and educate by demonstration.
“Today's digital and data-driven marketers never ignore the fact that direct mail remains a vital part of the multichannel mix. Presentation is always key,” states Dana Arnett, CEO of VSA Partners, “and consumers often favor and appreciate print to be the most effective and captivating way to connect with a brand.”
For many businesses, standing out from competitors is a challenge. Act Now!, and the case studies included, illustrate how engagement techniques and special effects can accentuate details that are distinctive to specific businesses, helping them stand out in their industry. In addition to design suggestions, Act Now! provides designers with a simple set of guidelines to best navigate USPS mail requirements, and also instructs marketers on how to utilize current technology to optimize their distribution lists for results that are both creative and cost-effective.
Act Now! was printed on Sappi Opus, known industry-wide for superior surface quality and engineered for pressroom efficiency. The paper is adaptable to any marketing format, and is recognized for its consistency and broad range of sizes, weights and finishes, with matching sheet and web options. Opus delivers a higher quality feel than any other competitive grade at the same basis weight; in addition, it is Green-e® certified and made with over 80 percent renewable energy, making it the perfect choice for direct mail needs. Opus is also cost-effective thanks to postal caliper guarantees that will help ensure that a mailing project stays within budget.
Find out how to Act Now!
To receive a copy of this essential resource, you can place a request with your Sappi sales representative; additionally, Trish Witkowski and Sappi’s Daniel Dejan will be going on the road to present Act Now! in a speaking tour with events scheduled through the end of 2013 and into 2014.

Top Story of the Week
So where would you rank your country if asked who you thought were the most sustainable countries in the world? First, of course -- what is the criteria? In this case, RobecoSam (Switzerland) looked at public environmental policies, emissions, energy sources, risk mitigation, and biodiversity. The top most sustainable? Sweden (#1) followed by Australia, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway. So why do the Viking nations of yore rank so high? And what about other developed nations? Look in the report for answers.
The United Kingdom came in at #6, followed by Canada, Finland, the United States of America, and the Netherlands. Do you agree with these rankings? What "matters" most in terms of a nation's sustainability profile?
Sweden's increasing use of renewable energy sources and lowering of CO2 emissions were major factors. All of this is in the report prepared by RobecoSam, which is a unit of Rabobank (based in the Netherlands). RobecoSam is the manager of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) and advisor to asset managers. The considerations for the nation ranking were "risks and opportunities" evaluated against the familiar ESG key performance indicators (KPIs). (21 developed and 38 emerging economies were examined in the research effort.)

Officially sanctioned or not by beneficiaries, do-it-yourself fundraising built around anything from virtual food drives to mountain climbs is growing rapidly. Giving up control to volunteers can be scary for nonprofit executives accustomed to owning and operating event programs.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network was sceptical when 2013 Cash Sweat & Tears award winner, Julie Weiss, first broached the idea of running 52 marathons in 52 weeks to raise money to fight pancreatic cancer in her father's memory. "Looking back" said PANCAN VP Jenny Isaacson, "it's hard to believe that we ever doubted Julie's ability to reach her goals...[Julie] has already set new goals for herself to benefit our organization, and she has vowed never to stop supporting the pancreatic cancer community."
The power of independent fundraising has led many organizations to reassess how they work with supporters who want to do their own thing. According to The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The LIVESTRONG Foundation hopes to increase its fundraising efficiency by shifting away from proprietary events like the LIVESTRONG Challenge and instead providing more support to independent initiatives.
Are you wondering how to capitalize on this growing trend? Struggling with balancing the support do-it-yourselfers need with your flagship events? Then sign up today for our free September 17webinar on just this topic.
Until then, enjoy the waning days of summer!
Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council

Free thanks to sponsorship from Blackbaud
Requests from supporters to create their own peer-to-peer fundraising programs have long made nonprofit executives squeamish. Typical reactions range from: "For Pete's sake, why don't they just get in line and take part in what we've worked so hard to produce?" to "What kind of trouble are these people going to cook up without our close supervision?" Those attitudes have done little to tamp down people's desires to go the independent route. Do-it-yourself online fundraising platforms make it easy for supporters to go out and hold their own programs with or without approval. The diversity of ways people are leveraging peer-to-peer fundraising on their own is tremendous from climbing mountains to asking for birthday donations to hosting virtual food drives. Many flexible nonprofit organizations that embrace this trend instead of fighting it are reaping big benefits. Join us as Blackbaud's Nancy Palo and the San Diego Zoo's Marcia Barr describe how to make the do-it-yourself fundraising movement work for your organization.

August 26, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) in collaboration with KPMG, UNEP, Centre for Corporate Governance in Africa and various stakeholders from each country studied recently released the third edition of the “Carrots & Sticks” publication. This important publication analyzes the growing number of national and international reporting policies and guidance from around the world.
We strongly recommend reading this document to learn more about what governments and stock exchanges around the world are mandating sustainability reporting, or "strongly urging" that companies begin such reporting.
The first edition of Carrots and Sticks covered developments in 19 countries; the second, 32 countries: This third edition shows the extraordinary growth in interest in sustaianbility by the power centers, and covers 45 countries and regions.
In the seven years of the series, the amount of policy and regulation has markedly increased. This includes a notable increase in the number of mandatory reporting measures. In 2006, 58 percent of policies were mandatory; now, more than two thirds (72 percent) of the 180 policies in the 45 reviewed countries are mandatory
The Governance & Accountability Institute’s Hank Boerner (Chairman and CEO) and Louis Coppola (Executive Vice President) assisted GRI with developing the United States content section in the report. A Fellow of the G&A Institute – Linda Lowson of CSR Insights – provided additional support and invaluable input into the US regulatory environment.
Among the current regulations and policies discussed by G&A in the US section are:
In the future we are sure to see this trend of Sustainability reporting regulations and policies increasing. As countries begin to develop their own policies around this important subject this research can be very useful in learning by example.
Based on the report the major developmental trends around the world were:

We know all about those famous sibling rivalries. Cain and Abel. The brothers Jackson. Thor vs. Loki. Venus and Serena Williams. Mobile fundraising vs. Traditional solicitation.
We sometimes hear a worry that text donation campaigns may be a detraction or detriment to your more traditional development and donor outreach efforts. But fear not! Mobile and traditional fundraising can get along as well as the Osmond Family. More than that, mobile and other forms of donor communication and solicitation can support and reinforce each other.
Mobile Fundraising Does Not Undermine Traditional Giving
Let’s first understand what mobile does NOT do. Mobile will not undermine your traditional giving program. Mobile donors will continue to be inclined to give to your organization in other ways.
Our 2013 Text Donation study offers several insights into this:
We asked text donors if their contribution via their mobile phone made them “less inclined” to give a larger donation “via another standard method.” The response was a resounding “no.” In fact, 42 percent of the text donors we surveyed reported giving more than $250 to organizations they support each year. Nearly 14 percent report giving more than $1,000 per year.
And regardless of how much they currently give, a total of 85 percent of current text donors say they are willing to give more money to nonprofits through other channels.
Clearly, text donations are not the enemy of traditional fundraising. So if text donations are not the enemy, what can they do together?
Text, Social Media and Online Giving – The Perfect Trio
Enter the great ménage a’ trois of fundraising: Text, online and social media.
Text donors are likely to support your online activities. In fact, text donors report that online giving is their most preferred method of charitable giving. And even if donors prefer giving online, the likelihood that they are doing so by accessing the web from their phone is increasing. Consider this from the Chronicle of Philanthropy:
“In 2012, Americans read email on their phones more frequently than on their computers. Mobile devices account for almost a quarter of all web traffic…and the share of traffic from smartphones and tablets is expected to overtake traffic from desktops sometime this year or next” (“Nonprofits Race to Get Ahead of the Explosion in Small Screens,” Chronicle of Philanthropy, 3/10/2012)
Social media and text messaging are also intertwined. More text donors are finding out about text donation campaigns through social media. Social media is the second most common method donors hear about text donation campaigns (TV and radio is first), with a six-point increase among text donors from 2012 to 2013 saying that social media was how they learned about donating to their charity by text.
The Attraction of Mobile for New Donors
We know that as much as 80 percent of mobile donors are unique to an organization. That means that mobile is not just a source for text donations…it’s a great source for new donors who otherwise might not be a part of your donor base. Mobile is a donor acquisition tool.
For example, one nonprofit client was able to acquire more than 2,100 new donors in the first year of their mobile campaign. Their retention rate for year one was 82 percent – which grew to 96 percent by year three and four. Through mobile they found new donors, kept them and are cultivating them to into their overall efforts.
Mobile and Events Go Hand-in-Hand
Special events and mobile are also a good match made in heaven. You can use mobile to communicate with event participants before, during and after the event as well as attract new supporters attending the event through signage and other awareness activities to attract opt-ins. We know this works – for example, one client was able to use mobile surrounding an event to attract new supporters, engage them on social media and build a relationship with them so that they achieved a 90 percent retention rate. Mobile donors are also event donors – our 2013 Survey showed that donating at special events was the second most preferred method of giving for text donors.
Tips for Integrating Mobile and Traditional
Okay, so mobile and the rest of your donor communication tactics get along famously. What can they do together? Here are a few tips:
Mobile phones play well in so many types of donor relations – from acquisition, to ongoing communication, event participation, solicitations, social media and online giving – they should be nominated for a humanitarian award.
And if they win, be sure to text out a link to your mobile optimized website announcing the news!
