Vote for the Best Nonprofit Tagline

Over 1400 taglines were submitted to the Nonprofit Tagline Awards. The final voting is down to just 63 tagline finalists. Creating good taglines for your nonprofit’s brand is challenging. There are so many different stakeholders that you need to think about both externally and internally when crafting the messaging. Here are some of the  taglines that captured my attention right off the bat.

Feed Your Inner Starving Artist -- Raffle for a glass making class in the museum glass studio and dinner -- by the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum –

Why I liked it? Everyone has an artist inside them waiting to paint, sculpt, craft, etc.

Why I liked it? Honest and straightforward. Everyone can relate to this message.
