As a non-profit communicator responsible for fundraising and marketing you understand the importance of using social media – but there is a huge problem.
As many of our clients say “Donors and Funders find us through social media. So the importance of having a professional and up to date online presence is crucial for us.”
Here is the issue with social media marketing in the non-profit sector:
While posting on social media, there is oftentimes no marketing strategy and content plan. The result: A constant hamster wheel of trying to come up with great content ideas day after day.
But because non-profit marketers don’t have a lot capacity anyways, they have to “shoehorn social media in amongst a zillion other responsibility” oftentimes not knowing if the content they post is relevant for their audience.
And what is even worse is that there is no system and process in place. In case the person who manages the social media gets sick social media is also on pause.
42% of Non-Profit Communicators spend more than 2 hours per day managing their social media accounts! *
*According to a survey that we did with 40 participating non-profits.
Working in the trenches with non-profits like yours, this is what we have heard:
What you want is:
A formula that works and “doesn’t take up a large chunk of time”
A way that “balances organization news, program/ events, fundraising and news” relevant to your cause.
Building an “engaging community online” and sharing information that truly matters to your audience
Setting a “consistent but doable content schedule”
A “sustainable way to create and maintain a social media content calendar”
Gain more engagement on everyday posts
Turning data into good storytelling
A system to “build your non-profit brand online”
Getting all of that done among a zillion other responsibilities and still be effective.
What you don’t need is:
Training on what the best social platforms are
Fluff about how to create a social media calendar
More time taken off from your main job by managing social media
Introducing: The Social Media Impact Calendar
Don’t waste your time developing your own content calendar. Use ours as is or customize it.
Proven easy color coded 5 Pillar System
A framework and already developed content ideas for 366 days/ 12 months and align them to your overall messaging.
Use the pre-planned content for your Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to routinely roll out highly-engaging content that engages with your supporters.
Elevate your FB lives, IG stories, posts, engagement questions, inspirational quotes, and never run out of content ideas.
Build a solid foundation for your non-profit brand and implement a strategy behind the content rather than posting last minute.
Nichole was able to reduce the time she spends managing social media by 66%.
“Social media is mostly where all our funders come from. I was spending 15 hours on finding and curating content. The social media impact calendar has cut me down to maybe 5 hours.
I now have something on our sites every day.
I don’t dread coming up with content anymore. I set apart a partial day and come up with all the content that I need for the month. It’s not a “I have time here” or “Hey, I’am gonna take a whole week to come up with these things in addition to my other work.”
Basically the calendar has given me all of this with a pretty bow and I don’t have to do a lot of leg work.”
Social Media is relationship building. You want people to Know, Like, and Trust you.
And this is why you need a repeatable system for your non-profit. Not just tactics.
“The 5 pillar concept has given me a broader concept of focusing on our organization, what we do, our strength and brand message. It has given me a lot more than just posting a happy story. Everyone loves those but there are other important things that we need to share.”
The 5 Pillar Content System is a strategic marketing framework that works across multiple platforms.
It enables you to clearly communicate your brand message and differentiate your organization.
It helps you to connect your social media activities with your overall marketing strategy and strategic plan.
Here is what other non-profit communicators have to say about the 5 Pillar Content System for Non-Profits:
“Love the 5 Pillar concept. I am looking forward to implementing the Social Media Impact Calendar.”
“Thank you so much, very helpful in an arena that can feel so overwhelming, especially when short on resources!”
“The biggest take away is to think high-level in terms of the types of content we post. Sometimes organizations, including us, focus on the number of platforms we have to be on and/or how frequently we need to post. Yet we forget about being strategic on content variety. I really like the 5 pillars system you present, and I think we will think more in this perspective.”
“This has been so helpful! THANK YOU, Kerstin, as a new professional and recent grad, this is fabulous!”
“Kerstin – this is GREAT! Those 5 Pillars make great sense.”
“I will be able to make good use of the 5 Pillar system that while working with my colleagues. Thank you.”
“We were just planning our calendar for the year and loved all the color coding of the 5 Pillar Calendar for ease of use with other volunteers.”

Does it work for your organization?
There are many social media gurus, programs and courses out there that teach you how to create a social media content calendar. And they all sound very promising. But here is one problem: Even if you take the course, you are still left with doing the work!
Everything you learn makes sense, the tools are helpful and you might even get a step by step guide BUT…
… once you get back to your day to day schedule, social media easily becomes something you do off the side of your desk again. And although you learned the skills needed and know how to use the tools you STILL don’t get your content planned out…
… because you just don’t have the capacity to spend hours of time planning your content strategically and end up creating adhoc posts that might not be aligned with your overall strategy.
And that is why we have done the work for you.
The 365 Social Media Accelerator System for works for any non-profit no matter what change you want to make in the world.
“Absolutely love the work that Kerstin has done creating the non-profit social media content calendar! The accelerator system It is a great planning tool for smaller organizations to ensure that our social media content is always current and raising our profile. The image template resource tools in addition to the calendar make it very user-friendly at any skill level.”
Lori Shatto, The Lending Cupboard
“I love this calendar. It’s like the perfect tool that I wanted to create for years but never got the time to do it. I will never run out of ideas with the calendar. Every post gives me ideas for 20 more. And the best: I can be strategic and align it with my marketing and brand messaging.”
Marie Gervais, Shift Management
“It’s a huge bargain. I would even pay more for it. With this plan, we save about 4-5 hours per week. If you calculate the time a staff member spends on social media, you have a return on investment in less than 5 hours.”
Pam Snowdon, Volunteer Central
The content calendar for non-profits helps us to be more strategic with our social media. We are able to plan the content that is relevant to our audience AND we have time to engage on social media rather than pulling our hair to come up with new ideas.”
Donna Mc Auley Forsuth, Family Services Central Alberta
Over the past 11 years we have been working in the trenches one-on-one with small non-profit organizations like yours…
social agencies and humanitarian organizations who struggle to find their voice online and differentiate their cause from others and reach their audience.
educational and art and cultural organizations who are too busy running their programs and need a predictable system to create engaging content without compromising their schedule.
environmental and animal rights organizations who feel exhausted thinking they need to slave away day in and day out to create ”epic new content” every single day.
I already use a scheduling tool, is the calendar and additional tools worth it for me?
The Social Media Impact Calendar is not a replacement for a scheduling tool. The calendar helps you to create the content. You still need to schedule it.
What if the calendar doesn’t work for us?
This is the second year that we have been offering the impact calendar. We haven’t heard any negative feedback so far. The calendar is offered at very low price and the sales are final.
Can you tell me more about the social media image template add-on?
You bet. The image templates are 200 designed quotes and questions. They are customizable to match your brand standards. We selected quotes and questions that inspire giving and doing good.
The templates can be accessed and edited with Google Slides. They are super easy to use, no graphic skills necessary. The images are sized at 1080 x 1080 pixel. This is the best size for Instagram but you can also use them on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Regular price is $37. If ordered with the calendar you can get them for $29 instead of $37. Just click “Add to Cart” button below and make sure to add the image templates as at the checkout when buying the calendar.
We want to increase our visibility on Instagram. Does the calendar work for Instagram?
Yes. The calendar works for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. You can use it for do live-streams, stories or regular posts.
What if I am not tech-savvy?
The calendar is set up in google and excel. If you are familiar with Microsoft office and Google there is no need to worry. You can just pug and play.
Why should you trust us?
Great questions, I mean, we probably don’t know each other yet.
