Rising to a dare, Ernest Hemingway wrote a short story in six words.
He said it was one of the most difficult things he had ever written.
“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” 1
a
s options in nonprofit marketing expand to incorporate what was previously
unimagined (think crowd-sourcing and mobile advocacy), it’s all too easy to focus
on the now and forget the basics.
But now — as we work with ever-more-diversified audiences, content overload and an
economic downturn — getting the basics right is more critical than ever.
Nothing’s more central to your nonprofit marketing strategy than your brand, your
organization’s unique focus and impact as perceived by your base and others. Branding
communicates your organization’s unique identity and value via consistent messaging and
“look and feel” so your audiences recognize that it’s your nonprofit reaching them in an
email, on Facebook or on a walkathon sign in a walker’s front yard. Most importantly,
strong branding integrates promises of quality, consistency and authenticity so donors,
volunteers and other key audiences become more engaged than ever.
Effective branding will differentiate your organization, enabling you to strengthen existing
relationships and increase awareness and understanding among audiences to grow
visibility and new relationships. Your nonprofit’s brand is conveyed most frequently via
your message platform (name, positioning statement and key messages or talking points)
and graphic identity.
But…
YouR NoNpRofiT’s NAme AloNe isN’T eNouGh
You’ve been there. You’ve got to explain in a few seconds what your nonprofit does and
the impact it makes, but that’s just not enough time to deliver your elevator pitch (usually
the one to three sentences that comprise your positioning statement).
Many organizations expect their names to broadcast what it is they do. Trouble is, they
frequently don’t.
Here are the three main reasons why. Many nonprofit names:
• Convey nothing about the organization’s work. Look at Lotus Outreach
International. There’s no way you’d know that this organization fights against child
trafficking and exploitation, and for access to education, in Cambodia and India.

• sound like the names of other organizations. For example, Human Rights Watch,
Human Rights First and Human Rights Campaign.
• are frequently confused with those of organizations focused on the same
issues. Think Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.
This is where your tagline (aka motto or slogan) — those vital eight words or less —
comes in, complementing your organization’s name to convey its unique impact or value
with personality, passion and commitment. The most unforgettable taglines also make an
emotional connection. Think E Pluribus Unum.
A high-impact tagline is the easiest and most effective way to communicate your
organization’s brand, and the best way to freshen up your messaging, emphasize your
commitment to your work and/or revive outdated positioning.
Your tagline should be a meaningful message that works in every context, for every
program and audience.
But is it?

GuiDiNG The WAY To TAGliNe suCCess
This report digs into nonprofit taglines, providing models, dos and don’ts, trends on
tagline use and longevity, and a directory of over 2,500 nonprofit taglines (the first ever).
These outtakes derive from the 1,702 entrants in the 2009 Nonprofit Tagline Awards and
survey data submitted by 1,900 nonprofit communicators working in organizations that
are diverse in field or issue focus, budget and staff size, longevity and geographic
location, from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association to the Bendigo (Australia) Figure
Skating Club and the Oregon Center for Public Policy.
Together, these voices have an important story to tell — one that can translate into
increased impact for your nonprofit, in just eight words or less.

1. Taglines that work generally fall into one of four categories,
describing an organization’s:
• Work: The voice and source for New York nonprofits 2
—Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York
• Impact or value: We Stop Polluters —Potomac Riverkeeper
2
Most taglines featured in this report are published as used by each organization, with broad variations in style.

• Core values or spirit: Whatever it takes to save a child —UNICEF
• strategic approach: Increasing physical activity through community design
—Active Living by Design
2. Most effective taglines relate to an organization’s name, without repeating it.
3. High-power taglines meet these criteria:
• Message: Does it tell a smart, fun and memorable story?
• Characteristics: Does it express your organization’s brand focus,
personality and values?
• Differentiation: Is it distinctive, not easily used by another nonprofit?
• People power: Does it motivate your audiences to contact you, join, give,
volunteer and participate in programs or services?
4. a majority (72%) of nonprofits rate their taglines poorly, or don’t have one
at all.
• Most nonprofit organizations (76%) do have taglines, but many (58%)
aren’t satisfied with the ones they have.
5. The leading reason that nonprofits don’t have taglines is…they never
thought of it (33%).
6. Human services organizations lead the way in having taglines (75%),
with grantmakers just behind.
• Environmental organizations hold up the rear, with only 30% using taglines
(while the field is becoming increasingly high-profile, complex and competitive).
7. nonprofit staff members most focused on making the most of their taglines
are marketers (47%), fundraisers (24%) and executive directors (21%),
in order of survey participation level.
8. Most taglines gauged to be very effective have been in use two to four years
(43%).
• Many new taglines (one year old or younger) deemed to be very effective
are still in the honeymoon period.

A million thanks to my friends and colleagues who have spread the word on the tagline
survey and award voting, and shared their interest and support with me.
Also, heartfelt thanks to my colleague, friend and husband, Sean Bailey, who inspires me

“Less is more; less is more; less is more. Oh wait, I only need to say that once.” 3
“The three questions I really want a tagline to help me answer are: What do they do?
How are they different? Why is this exciting? It’s really hard to answer all three,
so I admire anyone who can do it. For me, Gilda’s Club Nashville hit home
runs on all three — ‘Cancer support for the whole family — the whole time.’”
W
ho is your organization? How is it different from your colleague and competitive
organizations, and why should your base and other audiences care? Your
tagline — when crafted for power — should communicate these attributes, in a
memorable eight words or less. But does it?
The hAiKu of BRANDiNG 4: hoW A sTRoNG TAGliNe BeNefiTs YouR oRGANizATioN
Your organization’s tagline is hands-down the briefest, easiest and most effective way to
communicate your brand. It’s one of the six vital components of branding, along with your
nonprofit’s name, positioning statement, key messages, tone and visual identity (logo,
type, colors, images, look and feel).5
The tagline is the heart of your organization’s brand, so it should be designed strategically,
conveyed artfully and delivered passionately and consistently. Most essentially, it should
be such a natural outgrowth of your nonprofit’s name that the two are inextricably linked.
Make sure your tagline is frequently heard and read. Feature it prominently in all print
collateral and stationery, online communications (from e-newsletters and Web sites to
email sigs), signage, conversations and presentations and where appropriate your main
voicemail. The American Liver Foundation puts its tagline (The nation's leading
organization in the fight against liver disease and hepatitis) front and center in its
organizational voicemail, which is very useful, especially for those calling after hours.
An effective tagline differentiates you from your competitors while expressing your
organization’s personality and adding consistency to your marketing and communications.
And, because it’s positive, it generates a positive response from audiences.
When your tagline does work, it has the potential to become a perennial icon of your
organization, lifting your brand from the commonplace to the unforgettable. Think
A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste ®, from UNCF – The United Negro College Fund.
Your tagline should also work well as a lead-in to your positioning statement (the one to
three sentences you’d use as a reply when asked what your organization does). In the
broader picture, tagline development serves as a way to quickly and inexpensively refresh
or revise your brand — an anchor for subsequent branding work if your organization
doesn’t have the bandwidth or budget for an all-new or all-revised brand initiative.
The quotes at the beginning and end of each chapter are from award voters and survey participants.
Eric Swartz, “the Tagline Guru”

The bonus? The tagline development process will help to align internal understanding of
your organization’s direction and goals.
Of course, the more complex your organization’s focus and programming, the more
challenging it is to craft a powerful, accessible brand and tagline.
Beware, communicators. The absence of a tagline or the use of an ineffective one (and
that’s 72% of you) puts your nonprofit at a competitive disadvantage in soliciting funding,
building your staff and base, and increasing use of your programs, services and products.
The Ten have-Tos: Your one-sTop CheCk-up for powerful Taglines
Here’s a checklist for you to use to ensure your tagline does as much for your organization
as possible. That boils down to helping your nonprofit to achieve its marketing goals, and
hence its organizational goals. Note the four musts that your tagline has to follow.
Your tagline:
 1. Must convey your nonprofit’s or program’s impact or value.
• Send a Net. Save a Life —Nothing But Nets
• Protecting Your Retirement. Securing Your Benefits. —RetireSafe
• Informing Grantmakers, Improving Our Community
—Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers
Make sure you use your tagline for all it’s worth. If your tagline doesn’t have
positioning value, it’s a bust. Pure descriptors don’t make the grade.
 2. Must be authentic. Make sure your organization can stand behind your
tagline, 100%. When you do, you build credibility. When you don’t, you lose
any you may have.6
 3. Must be broadly and easily accessible and memorable, avoiding
jargon and acronyms.
• Starve Fear. Feed Hope. —National Eating Disorders Organization
• A Passion to Help. The Ability to Deliver. —Americares
 4. Must be specific to your organization, not easily used by another
nonprofit reaching out to the same audiences, otherwise it’s just a “me
too.” This is particularly tough, but differentiation is the name of the game.
• People Who Change the World Need the Tools to Do It! —NTEN
• Equal Play —Women’s Sports Foundation
• Smart Policy. Sound Science. Stronger Communities.
—Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs
Three national human services organizations submitted the exact same tagline
(People Helping People) to the survey, which means each one is losing out on
tagline power.

 5. Must be eight words or less, which is all you have of your audience’s attention.
• We Help Neighborhoods Play —Silken’s ActiveKids Movement
• Where volunteering begins. —VolunteerMatch
NOTE: There are exceptions to this rule, when more than eight words are required
to get the gist across:
• Helping donors create thoughtful, effective philanthropy throughout the world
—Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (a complex service and concept,
justifying nine words)
• More than a store. We build healthy families and communities one job at a time.
—Goodwill/Easter Seals Minnesota (15 words is a lot, but the organization
is trying to correct misperceptions about its work and impact)
 6. Must be highly visible and integrated into all print, online, multimedia
and most verbal communications. For example, when audiences hear your
organization’s name and tagline announced as a sponsor of Morning Edition (or
any other show), it’s imperative that they can go to your Web site and see that
tagline front and center to affirm that they’re in the right place. The American
Psychological Association (APA) sponsors the show, and its name and tagline are
broadcast to a huge audience. Unfortunately, that tagline is nowhere to be found
on the Association’s home page. That invisibility and lack of integration across
channels undermines your tagline power and overall marketing impact.
 7. Must make an emotional connection.
• Helping Preserve the Places You Cherish —LandChoices
• When You Can’t Do It Alone —Jewish Family & Children’s Service
of Sarasota – Manatee, Inc.
 8. Must capture the spirit or promise of your organization.
• Finding the Ways that Work —Environmental Defense Fund (committed to
taking on environmental issues with persistence and innovation)
• Grounded in tradition...Open to the Spirit —Memphis Theological Seminary
 9. Must clearly complement and/or clarify your organization’s name
without duplicating it.
• It’s a Moving Experience —Museum of Transportation (MO)
• Explore, Enjoy and Protect the Planet —Sierra Club
The Sierra Club’s name is somewhat obtuse, as the reference to California’s
Sierra Nevada mountain range doesn’t communicate anything about what the
organization does, or the geographic breadth of its work and programs.
You can’t presume your audience brings any particular context to digesting
the tagline.

 10. Must take the tone that will connect with your audiences while
being true to your organizational “self.” Effective taglines may be
humorous or earnest, tangible or conceptual.
• Humorous: To Life (from Fiddler on the Roof) —Jewish Federation of South
Palm Beach County (Caution: This tagline succeeds because of the cultural
common ground shared by the Federation and its base. That’s a prerequisite
for integrating humor into your nonprofit’s tagline or other key messaging.)
• earnest/straight-ahead: Investing in Peace and Security Worldwide
—Ploughshares Fund
• Tangible: We Stop Polluters —Potomac Riverkeepers
• abstract: Ideas into Action, Action into Service —American University

The five shoulD-Dos: iNCoRpoRATe These elemeNTs foR eveN GReATeR impACT
1. surprising or unexpected imagery, perspective or approach.
• Improving Life, One Breath at a Time —American Lung Association (imagery)
• The Art of Active Aging —EngAGE (perspective)
• Cancer support for the whole family —the whole time
—Gilda’s Club Nashville (approach)
2. Motivating an action.
• Help us feed the hungry —Food Pantries for the Capital District
3. Verbs. Action words are more engaging:
• Building careers through confidence, discipline and professionalism.
—Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow
• Advancing Immunology. Conquering Cancer. —Cancer Research Institute
4. Making your audiences want to know more.
• Rise Above Your Expectations —Sisters Acquiring Financial Empowerment

5. Consistent meaning even when standing alone. That way, you can use it in
conversation or other situations when your listeners don’t have your organization’s
name or logo right in front of them:
• Helping victims become children again —Memphis Child Advocacy Center
Caveat: In most cases, your name and tagline will be used together.
Do strive to integrate as many of these guidelines as possible into your tagline. Clearly, it’s
difficult to incorporate all ten have-tos and five should-dos in a single tagline.
fouR mAiN TAGliNe TYpes AND A millioN vARiATioNs oN The Theme
You’ve already been introduced to these four main nonprofit tagline genres, focused on
the organization’s:
1. Work focus: This is especially useful when an organization’s name is obtuse.
• Teaching Children the Language of Music —The Children's Orchestra Society
• Providing Medical Relief —Doctors Without Borders
• Connecting People with Nature —New York-New Jersey Trail Conference
2. Impact or value:
• From Harm to Home —International Rescue Committee
• When You Can’t Do It Alone —Jewish Family & Children’s Service
of Sarasota –Manatee, Inc.
3. Core values or spirit:
• The greatest casualty is being forgotten —Wounded Warrior Project
• Changing Hearts, Changing Lives —Canadian Bible Society
4. strategic approach:
• Giving a hand up, not a hand out, to homeownership —Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County, Inc.
• Holding Power Accountable —Common Cause
But there are a million variations on the theme that are also valid models for
your organization.
Here are selected variations submitted to the survey:
1. aligned with a specific approach, category or field that adds prestige and
credibility, and gives new meaning or added value:
• Lawyers Giving Back to the Community —Volunteer Lawyers Service
• Building Human Potential for Economic Development —Hi-Tech Charities
2. Inspirational. Focuses on needs, wishes or aspirations that suggest the successful
attainment of an abstract goal or desired outcome:

3. Twofold benefits:

• Ease the burden, Find a cure and Un appui aujourd’hui, une réponse demain.

NOTE: The range of taglines in the 2009 Nonprofit Tagline List indicates that tagline
style is all over the map. There are absolutely no standards, but I advise you to stick to
the style and tone you’ve shaped to work in other marketing messages.
• “The taglines that work the best for me are the ones that punch up the purpose
or mission of the organization.”
• “Taglines using action words are the most memorable. Adjectives make it less clear
what an org actually DOES — and less sincere because the org is qualifying its own
work.”
• “I'm partial to the ‘call to action’ type of tagline, but for some orgs the ‘descriptive’
tagline is more important.”

especially those that make impossible claims.”
“Most of the ones that don't work are too long or
not clear in expressing what the organization does.”
a
s challenging as it is to create a strong tagline, it’s all too easy to craft
one that fails. When that happens, your organization loses a potent tool
and, even worse, may confuse or annoy audiences.
Beware these pitfalls that will sink your tagline.
The seveN DeADlY siNs: AvoiD These To eNsuRe YouR messAGe is oN poiNT
Your tagline is, next to your organization’s name, the most remembered, repeated
message you have. Make sure it’s right. A tagline is a terrible thing to waste.
1. Don’t be generic. Be specific and as emotive as possible to highlight a connection
between an individual and your organization. Warning: this is a very common error.
• Weak: Building a Better New York —Organization providing legal services to other
nonprofits
• This tagline could represent a construction firm or the mayor’s office.
• Powerful: Connecting Lawyers and Communities —From the same kind of
nonprofit in another city.
Take a look at these other generic taglines that raise more questions than they
answer:
• We’re more than you think! —Women’s health care provider
• What are the unexpected services, and why are they important?
• There is a Difference! —Hospice organization
• Articulate what that difference is.
• Discover! —Camp
• Discover what?
2. Don’t craft a tagline your organization can’t stand behind 100%. Your
nonprofit has to be able to deliver what you promise. When you do so, your
organization reaffirms its credibility. When you don’t, you lose any you may have:
• Together we can save a life —Major relief organization that hasn’t been
all it could be over the past decade
•This just doesn’t ring true. It’s hard to believe that one could rely on this
organization to do the job.

• Eliminating racism, empowering women
—Human services organization serving women
• No single organization can eliminate racism.
3. Don’t veer off focus. This tagline draws attention to the organization’s location,
a detail not central to the organization’s services or value:
• Produced in Boston, Shared with the World —Public service media production
(PBS and public radio)
4. Don’t use inept references. You’ll only confuse your audiences:
• Life is a Team Sport —Marrow donor organization
• Find Your Edge —University
• Edge is not what most students (or parents) are seeking.
5. Don’t plant uneasiness. Make sure you don’t introduce ambiguity into your
tagline. Take a look at these:
• Having Exactly What You Want —Therapeutic development training institute
• This holds frightening implications for the dissolution of family and community.
• Protecting, Strengthening and Promoting Nonprofits —State association of nonprofits
• Why do nonprofits need protection? This is bound to make audiences wonder.
6. Don’t use poor word choices. They take audiences in the wrong direction.
• Potential Made Possible —Agency serving children with special needs
• Better: Potential Brought to Life
7. Don’t put two or more taglines to work. If you do, you’re doing everything you
can to undermine your organization’s brand. As a result, your audiences won’t get to
know or pass the word on your organization. Instead, they’ll be annoyed and confused.
One survey respondent commented, “Various staff and board members, and volunteers,
use different ones.”

1. avoid platitudes. Beware your audience’s reaction. If it’s “Of course,” then you need
to return to the tagline drawing board.
Here are a few taglines that fall into this trap:
• Caring for all that matters —Public health care clinic
• Who doesn’t?
2. avoid talking to yourself. Remember, your tagline is designed to engage
your base and others. It’s not about you; it’s about other people.

When your tagline is self-referential, it’s the kiss of death:
• Live United —Major human services organization
• Perhaps this is an attempt to convey core organizational values,
but it doesn’t mean a thing to those other than staff and volunteers.
• One University. Two Great Names. —University born from a merger of two major
institutions.
• If that’s all the school has to say, I wouldn’t send my child there.
• This tagline may be a component of a brand transition campaign, but it
lacks the key prerequisite for campaign success: meaning.
• We give you support. We give you information. We give you hope.
—Bereavement support organization.
• Could it be any more about the organization?
• Better: More you. Less we.
3. avoid using hyperbole. When you overstate your organization’s value or impact,
you lose credibility. Who liked or believed the kid who always boasted about his
most recent accomplishments?
Focus on what makes your organization important to your audiences. Let them
draw their own conclusions on how great your nonprofit is:
• The authoritative resource on safe water —Water safety organization
• Excellence in Philanthropy —Community foundation
• Cultural Ambassador to the World —Famed modern dance company
4. avoid dating yourself. Make sure your tagline reflects your audiences’ current
concerns and issues, and review it periodically to ensure it stays that way.
Otherwise, the perception of being out of touch will extend to your nonprofit.
This one is very 1998:
• Log on. Log in. Be Counted. —State community service commission
5. avoid cute, trite or clichéd. Because these references are so familiar, it’s likely
your audiences will skim or dismiss the tagline without taking it in. Clichés also
minimize the value and importance of your nonprofit’s work and issue focus:
• Finding ‘fur-ever’ homes for the cats and kittens of Las Vegas
—Pet adoption agency
• Rock Solid Education —University whose name includes “rock”
• No one like you, No College like us. —Community college
6. avoid repeating yourself. Redundancy has a way of annoying people, including
your audiences. Show a little more respect and say what you want to say, once.
Here is a tagline that hits its audience over the head:

• Overcoming Barriers to Justice, Improving Lives —Legal services agency
• Of course overcoming barriers to justice improves lives. No need to say so.
Also, avoid repeating a word that’s in your organization’s name in the tagline; it’s too
much of one concept and sound, and too much of a waste:
• Altering the legacy of violence, one life at a time —Legacy House
• Defending Human Rights Worldwide —Human Rights Watch
7. avoid creating a barrier to understanding with jargon or obtuse language.
Make sure your message is clear and accessible to all targets:
• Helping Kinship Families Avoid the Pitfalls —Family services agency
• What is a kinship family?
8. avoid using a tagline already in use by another organization engaging the
same audiences. Three organizations I know of use the same tagline: People
helping People. That means it didn’t pass the compare test, or wasn’t researched or
tested. As a result, audiences won’t be engaged. They’ve seen it before:
• Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors. —Jewish community organization,
based in Los Angeles
• Selected as finalist in the 2009 Getting Attention Nonprofit Tagline Awards.
• Voters let me know that it is the long-time, well-known tagline of The
people of The United Methodist Church.
A tagline used by multiple organizations will work for the first organization
someone finds but will flop for the second and third (and then it will flop for the
first organization after the subsequent uses are discovered).
9. avoid including anything extra, especially the date of your organization’s
founding or how many years it’s been around. Such details waste the little bit of
audience “real estate” you have, unless your organization is a bank:
• Saving lives since 1998 —Cat’s Cradle
• Strengthening New York’s Communities for Over 25 Years
—Community Resource Exchange

Your nonprofit’s job is to make it easy for your audiences to digest your tagline, and
to help them remember and repeat it. But many organizations seem to have left that
focus out of the job description.
1. Don’t confuse or confound audiences. Not that anyone sets out to confuse
audiences, but many organizations do so unintentionally. Make sure your content is
clear and accessible:

• Helping older adults, now and in the future —County council on aging
• Will the council be around in the future, or does it plan to provide services
for seniors now and in the future?
• Bringing your vision into focus —Community development agency
• The tagline suggests a focus on the visually impaired, not community
development
• Beyond —University
• Beyond what, and why?
2. Don’t force audiences to piece together fragments. This is a common path
taken when nonprofits feel their focus and/or programs are too complex or diverse
to communicate in a single phrase.
The typical reaction to taglines like these is “And…?” The question remains how
do these individual words fit together to showcase the organization’s focus or value.
It’s your job to connect the dots:
• Excellence Reflection Collaboration —Jewish education organization
• Quality – Flexibility – Community —University
Let me say it again: MAKE IT EASY FOR YOUR AUDIENCES. Present them with a
complete picture, not 1,000 pieces they have to put together.
However, this approach can work when more meaningful phrases are strung together:
• Big Sky. Big Land. Big History.
—Montana Historical Society
3. Don’t twist tongues. Nothing’s more annoying, or more impossible to remember
and repeat, than a tongue twister.
Try saying these taglines 10 times fast:
• Perfecting the Places We Live to Protect the Places We Don't
—Environmental organization
• Uniting Unique People in a Unique World —Advocacy organization
4. Don’t try to cover everything. It’s just too much information.
These taglines are impossible to digest, much less to remember and repeat:
• Teaching people of all ages and abilities to use their power to stay safe, act
wisely and believe in themselves! —Agency teaching personal safety,
self-protection, confidence, and advocacy skills.
Cut what’s not necessary: For example, never include the organization’s name or
key words in the tagline.
5. Don’t guilt me. Making audiences feel bad may work in the short term, but it
always bombs in the long run. You can’t build a healthy relationship with guilt, so
avoid this approach:
• The Right Thing to Do —Food pantry

Before you start your own organization’s tagline brainstorming session, review taglines
of colleague and competitive organizations (within and outside of your field).
Don’t launch your tagline before trying it out. Before committing yourself to your top
choice, get feedback from at least 10 members of key external audiences.
You may discover one of two things: They just don’t get it, or you don’t feel 100%
comfortable with it yourself.
Before you launch, make sure you love your tagline and will be satisfied using it for at
least five years. If it remains relevant and powerful, a longer life span is even better.
Recognition is priceless. Unless your nonprofit changes its programs and services
drastically, or the environment in which you work shifts significantly, there’s considerable
value in your tried-and-true tagline.
But remember, there are good reasons to change your tagline even when your name or
other brand elements remain the same. A tagline-only change can freshen your message,
confirm your promise and/or rejuvenate your organization’s brand.

• “Most of these, sadly, are not taglines. They’re descriptors or a collection of words
that sound nice but don’t really say anything. A tagline is a positioning statement
expressed as a benefit. The ones that work communicate a clear and competitive
benefit, the ones that don’t fail as taglines.”
• “Clichés don’t work (“one ___ at a time”), negative is difficult (“From Harm to Home”),
‘change’ is ambiguous and overused, commands sound harsh.”
• “If the taglines are too long and too ‘concept rich,’ they don’t work. Too fervent isn’t
good, either.”
• “Taglines fail when they reek of policy wonkery. You can tell a director either came
with them or reduced their effectiveness with the addition of trend words like impact,
potentials, employability, and barriers.”
• “Too many of these taglines could be for thousands of other charities — very few
encapsulate the unique selling proposition of the cause. Also, very few are snappy,
punchy or memorable because they're too long or wordy.”
• “Too many gerunds here; when you remove ‘ing’ from many of these, they
improve hugely.”
• “The weakest ones are the ones that still don’t give you a clue as to what the

• “Generalities make a tagline fail: The #1 reason I think most of these taglines
don’t work is that they are not SPECIFIC enough, and have nothing to do with
the groups or their work.”
• Some of these taglines that IMHO don’t work are also pretty meaningless, to put
it bluntly. What does ‘Because facts matter’ really mean? So facts matter, so what?
The tagline contributes very little, if anything; it performs no useful function.”
NOTE: Opinions on finalist taglines varied greatly. See award winners.
• “Sometimes taglines that are too literal don’t work. Plays on words can work,
but only if they really make sense.”

Of the 8% of taglines deemed not effective, most are between two and four years old, or

middle years (five to eight years).
Most (43%) of the taglines rated very effective (10% of all taglines) are between two and
four years old. That life span is enough time to gauge impact but not so much time that
staffers have lost interest.
22% of the top-rated taglines are a year old or less, making that rating less definitive.

Marketers are trailed by fundraisers (21%) and executive directors (19%), as extrapolated
from self-identification of survey participants.
These individuals are likely to be the staff members most focused on outside perceptions
of their organizations and committed to putting multiple communications strategies to
use.
Oddly, marketers are most highly represented in the education field (63% of education
respondents), although education is one of the fields with the fewest taglines in play.
However, those educational institutions with taglines rate them as effective.
Few program, membership, operations, human resources and IT staff members and board
members, volunteers and founders participated in the survey.
Marketing, and branding in particular, must be a cross-functional enterprise in order to
be effective. It’s clear that those beyond marketers and fundraisers should be involved,
interested and trained in branding, including taglines.
Remember, your organization’s tagline is — next to its name — the most used marketing
message it has. At the very least, everyone in a nonprofit organization should understand
and be able to articulate the tagline and elevator pitch/positioning statement.

The leading reason that nonprofits don’t have taglines is…
they never thought of it (33%).
There are three additional categories of reasons participant organizations do
not have a tagline, as submitted by survey participants:
1. These participants have little personal power to move forward with
tagline development, as much as they may want to:
• “The final decision makers want a tagline that is more of a vision statement.
It is very hard to get everyone involved to narrow our tagline down to just a few
words, but I really think we need one!”

• “We’re only a few years old — wanted a better sense of what we are actually
adding value before developing a tagline.”
• “Government policy not to.”
• “Sophomoric board.”
• “I’m new to organization; have not pursued it forcefully.”
• “I’m a peon, but in general branding/marketing is poorly done.”
2. These participants cite challenges that make sense but can —
and should — be overcome:
• “Just haven’t sat down to work on it.”
• “No time to research, no budget to pay a consultant.”
• “Our organization is set in its ways; hasn’t moved for a century.”
• “Interest comes and goes.”
• “We have a program with a strong tagline that outshines any attempt we’ve
done to have an organizational one.”
• “New entity within organization so we’re trying to stand out yet integrate branding.”
• “Only recently re-branded and tagline still needs to be developed.”
3. These participants cite reasons that are not justifiable. Get on it, today:
• “Just haven’t sat down to work on it.”
• “Org’s name is already so lengthy.”
• “Had one, everyone hated it. Can’t agree on another one.”
• “Just changed our name. That was enough for one year.”
• “We get pseudo taglines that cycle with the seasons.”
• “Difficult decision in creating the right one.”
• “Not sure our story is compelling enough to have a tagline.” (Bad news)
• “Created only for the Web.”
• “Use our mission statement.”
• “Used to have one, but leadership decided it wasn’t effective, and noted
that other organizations like ours didn’t have one.”
• “Various staff and board members, and volunteers, use different ones.”
(More bad news; conflicting messages undermine your brand.)
• “Difficulty in creating one”

T
The Getting Attention Nonprofit Tagline Awards program was a must after so many
effective taglines were submitted to our first tagline survey in 2008. The awards,
conferred annually, represent the best of nonprofit taglines in all vertical sectors.
Initially, 60 tagline finalists were carefully selected according to the criteria outlined
in Chapter Two. Then, from that group, the 13 award winners were selected by 4,821
nonprofit professionals and interested others who participated in an online poll.
2009 Tagline award winners
Congratulations to these 13 award winners voted best in class. All do an admirable job
of putting pithy taglines to work to build their brands.
The organizations behind these taglines range from a Los Angeles–based workforce
and community development organization (Homeboy Industries) to national and
international groups. These organizations vary broadly in the number of years they
have used the winning messages, with Barefoot Workshop’s and SIFE’s recentlylaunched taglines juxtaposed with those used for eight years or more by Common
Cause, Earthjustice and Homeboy Industries, and UNCF’s 38-year-old masterpiece.
Arts & Culture
• Big Sky. Big Land. Big History. —Montana Historical Society
The Montana Historical Society takes its state’s most elemental and distinctive
characteristics (Big Sky, Big Land) and deftly melds them with its mission in a
way that generates excitement. The result is a tagline with punch and focus.
It was also a big hit with voters.
Associations
• Building community deep in the hearts of Texans —TexasNonprofits
TexasNonprofits’ tagline tweaks the title of an iconic American popular song from the
1940s and brilliantly connects it to the spirit, passion and mission of the state’s

citizenry. A great example of how word play works in a tagline.
Civic benefit (civil rights, community, advocacy, social science)
• Holding Power Accountable —Common Cause
Common Cause’s tagline leaves no doubt about the organization’s mission, unique
value and commitment. It’s definitive, with a powerful economy of words. An excellent
example of the tagline clarifying the nonprofit’s focus, when the organization’s name
alone doesn’t do so.
education
• A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste ® —UNCF –The United Negro College Fund
This decades-old tagline from UNCF still rings strong. It elegantly delivers its straightup, powerful message. When your tagline is the boiled-down essence of your argument
for support, you’ve achieved tagline bliss. That’s why this one is a classic.
More on the UNCF brand here.
environment & animals
• Because the earth needs a good lawyer —Earthjustice
Earthjustice capitalizes on what people do understand — that a lawyer protects rights —
and uses that framework to dramatically position its role and impact in the environmental
movement. And it does so with humor. If your tagline makes people smile or light up,
without stepping on your message, then you’ve made an emotional connection. Bravo.
Grantmaking
• If you want to be remembered, do something memorable. —The Cleveland Foundation
It’s a rare tagline that manages to recruit people to its cause both unabashedly and
effectively. That’s exactly what The Cleveland Foundation pulls off here. Clear, concise,
and…memorable! A model for any organization promoting philanthropy.
Health & sciences
• Finding a cure now...so our daughters won't have to.© —PA Breast Cancer Coalition
The PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s tagline is both emphatic and poignant. It strikes a deep
emotional chord, and conveys the focus and impact of its work without being overly
sentimental. “Finding a cure” a highly used phrase for health organizations, is bolstered
here by the appeal to solve a problem now so future generations won’t suffer from it.
Human services (including aging, children, youth and families)
• Filling pantries. Filling lives. —Houston Food Bank
With simple but effective use of word repetition, the Houston Food Bank clarifies its work
and impact. It delivers on two distinct levels—the literal act of putting food on people’s
shelves and the emotional payoff to donors and volunteers. An excellent example of a
mission-driven tagline.

Short, punchy and laser-sharp, the Nothing But Nets tagline connects the action with
the outcome. It’s inspirational in the simplicity of its message and its reason for existing.
The kind of tagline nonprofits should model.
Jobs & Workforce Development
• Nothing Stops A Bullet Like A Job —Homeboy Industries
Homeboy Industries’ tagline is a mini-masterpiece, telling a memorable story in just
seven words. It stops you in your tracks, makes you want to learn more and sticks with
you afterwards. That’s the kind of potent nonprofit messaging every organization desires.
Media
• Telling stories that make a difference —Barefoot Workshops
If your organization’s name is vague, it’s critical that your tagline be distinct. Barefoot
Workshops’ tagline sums up the transformative power of stories to create change in
people and their communities, so clarifying the organization’s focus. Saved by the
tagline!
Note to next year’s entrants: “make a difference” has achieved cliché status among nonprofits
and should be avoided whenever possible.
Religion & spiritual Development
• Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors. —The people of The United Methodist Church
The work of religious organizations often operates on several planes at once —
a challenge for any organization and its messaging. Here, The United Methodist Church
delivers a tagline trinity that supports its applied faith mission and is warm, enthusiastic
and embracing.

• A head for business. A heart for the world. — SIFE (Students In Free Enterprise)
If an organization’s identity contains within it a distinct contrast between its key
characteristics, that’s often good tagline material. Here, SIFE surprises with its
crystal-clear tagline that not only conveys what’s unique about it but also capitalizes
on the contrast between profit and compassion.

his report is based on findings of an in-depth survey of nonprofit organizations’ use
of taglines. The survey, implemented by Nancy Schwartz of GettingAttention.org,
was open to all nonprofit organizations without restriction.
Participants:
• Were largely based in the United States, with minor participation among Canadian
nonprofits and a few responses from organizations in other countries.
• Spanned 11 vertical sectors, from arts and culture to environment and
animals, and human services.
• Held a variety of positions within nonprofit organizations, although marketers,
fundraisers and executive directors were most strongly represented. Consultants
and firms also participated.
Respondents included readers of the Getting Attention blog and e-update and readers of
other blogs and publications reaching the nonprofit sector; members of state nonprofit
associations, regional associations of grantmakers, and the Communications Network; and
others who learned about the survey via print and online resources or colleague referral.
The survey instrument was designed by the researcher and reviewed by colleagues prior
to release. The main objectives adhered to during the instrument design were defining
trends and best practices for tagline design and usage.
Participants were asked what fields they worked in, whether they had a tagline and, if so,
how satisfied they were with it, how and when the tagline was used, and how long it had
been in use.
Data collection began on November 30, 2007 and ended on January 31, 2008. In total,
1,873 individuals representing 1,834 organizations completed the survey.

The 2009 NoNpRofiT TAGliNe lisT
These 2,543 taglines were submitted with award entries or survey responses
by nonprofit staff members around the world. They are inspiring, and serve
as a valuable brainstorming tool for your organization’s tagline development
process.
Please note that:
• Taglines are published as submitted and used by each
organization, with broad variations in style.
• Each survey participant selected the category her organization
works within. As a result, you may see similar organizations
listed in different sectors.
• In some cases, organizations use two different taglines.
This is not advisable, unless operating in a bilingual context.
• A star (★) at left indicates that the tagline is a winner in the
2009 Getting Attention Tagline Awards.
• An asterisk (*) at left indicates that the tagline was a finalist
in the 2009 Getting Attention Tagline Awards.
