1. EZ Digital Cards

EZcard is “digital must-have” for every non-profit. It is the perfect, highly affordable, digital marketing platform for non-profits and many other businesses. It will get the word out, and give you a quick and effective way of communicating with your clients and supporters, as well as a way for them to communicate back with you. Better yet, it will allow them to quickly and easily share your contact information with their friends to build your base of support. Through the free EZcard Non-Profit Affiliate program, it can even be a dynamic (an ongoing) fundraiser for you. EZcard is designed as a do-it-yourself (and manage-it-yourself) web app. It is the combination of a digital business card, mobile website, and smart-phone app, all for just a few dollars a month. Create it by just typing and uploading pictures and videos, then easily send it out via text or email. Non-profits usually don’t have an IT guy on staff for digital marketing, but even if you do, you need an EZcard! Please ask about our non-profit discount!

2. A Style Experience. Why your Image Matters.

How you dress makes a statement about who you are and the organization you represent to existing and potential clients and/or donors. It’s imperative that you dress appropriately and make a strong first impression. Whether you are going in front of a board of directors to ask for money, giving a presentation, attending fundraising events or traveling overseas, knowing that you are well dressed for the situation increases your self-confidence, helps you make the right impression and contributes to the success of your NGO.

Shelley Golden is an International Image Consultant and Stylist, who helps women and men with their clothing and overall image, giving them the confidence they need to get their NGOs to the next level. Having lived in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East, she has extensive international and domestic business experience. She understands the various ways in which people around the world put themselves together with color, fabric and design as well as the importance of social and cultural etiquette.

In order to get what you want in this competitive world, you need to approach your potential client/donor in a polished and approachable manner. Shelley fuses her knowledge, skills and talent to help her clients enhance their individual style based on their interests, body shape, coloring and lifestyle.

Shelley can take you shopping for event attire or a travel wardrobe. She can also shop for you and advise on the correct colors, styles and designs to wear for the appropriate occasion.

Shelley helps develop and implement dress code guidelines for organizations to help their employees and members to achieve success, both personally and professionally. She has an excellent understanding of international business cultures and can help identify appropriate business attire world-wide as well as manage fashion trends and assist in up-leveling employees to be consistent with the company’s image. Shelley has experience with companies such as ABN-AMRO Bank, Ogilvy & Mather, MRM Worldwide and E-bay.

First impressions are lasting impressions and Shelley’s passion is to make sure the impression you leave with someone is the one you want them to have.

5. Unbound: The MasterClass for Breaking the Barriers Holding Back Your Success

We each have brilliance in our field. However, we don’t have the skills to build out the process to earn money we deserve with that brilliance. It’s not our fault…we aren’t supposed to know all the details that will attract income from our products or services. We are great…we just don’t know how to fully convert our skills into the income that we deserve.

In my world, leadership is the pathway to income. Filling in the gaps that we don’t see and don’t realize are holding us back is why I have created this program.
We start right away by defining the future vision and then create the pathway to attracting income to achieve that future vision. There is a lot of valuable content delivered weekly. There are group Q & A sessions every two weeks. It’s the content that unlocks your future and a group process guided by me to assist you in achieving your ultimate success!

There are lots of online programs offering promises to create lots of revenue. Some of them even work. What’s missing from those “quick fix” offers is a system for creating sustainable, recurring income and a support system to assist us when we get stuck or get confused.

My answer is to provide a system with a step-by-step implementation sequence.

  1. There’s no guesswork…
  2. There’s no wondering what’s next…
  3. There’s sufficient content to guide your planning and actions…
  4. There’s a support group and my mentoring…
  5. There are specific modules covering the stages for moving forward…

6. Leadership Development

Dr. Jeffrey Magee is a Certified Board Executive, serves on multiple boards now and provide Coaching, Consulting and on-site professional development work with this demographic.

1. Grant Writing Boot Camp: Six-Part Series

Studies reveal that many managers of non-profit finances, including for churches, suffer huge knowledge gaps, leaving them in a vicious cycle of “nonprofit starvation.”

Another common mistake is many non-profit Executives, Social-Entrepreneurs, Clergy and Thought-leaders leave it up to the Grant Writer to understand and develop the grant strategies for their organizations — which is a BIG mistake!

Executives who see the success or failure of their fundraising strategies as the sole responsibility of the grant writer or funds developer, is failing to consider the responsibilities beyond the funding application, i.e., day-to-day operations; collaborative building; past strategies; future strategic planning, projected outcomes, past and present contacts and resources, and more; in which all are a part of the application process. How would the grant writer or funds development automatically know this information?

It’s important for the leading principal to become versed in the financial strategies of the organization to ensure sustainability.

Convening once a week, this comprehensive virtual training consists of six two-hour webinar sessions for six weeks.

  • Do you know how to select qualified Board Members?
  • Do you have trouble maintaining Board Members?
  • Are your Board Members inactive and/or nonresponsive?
  • Even worse, are your Board Members dead weight, instead of economic enhancements to your organization?

Let the Kreative Images Foundation make the difference with your Board!

Through our thought provoking, comprehensive training, we also answer some of the following questions:

  • What is corporate governance?
  • Do I need a Board of Directors?
  • Can I pay my Board Members?
  • What are the roles of Corporate Officers, Board of Directors and Shareholders?
  • What’s the difference between a For-profit Board of Directors and Nonprofit Boards?
