Social Media Templates
Social media campaigns can make a big impact on small nonprofits. That's why it's crucial to have a few sets of social media templates ready. If you don't have a graphic designer on the team and you run out of time to create as many social media graphics as they need, having a ready-to-use template can make a whole lot of difference in your campaigns.
Canva for Nonprofits helps solve that problem by offering thousands of free templates so that fundraisers can consistently promote branded campaigns across social media.
When working with templates, be sure to:
Use your brand fonts
Use your brand’s color numbers
Insert your logo
Pick a style that aligns with your brand
Here’s an example.
Let’s say you chose this Instagram template for your organization’s bake sale fundraiser:
It’s beautiful! But you’ll need to change the fonts, colors, add your logo, and a website link at the bottom. See here:
Pro Tip: Create a brand kit on your team’s Canva account so that you don’t have to manually keep inserting your fonts, colors, and logos over and over again.
After selecting 10-20 templates, you think would work for your organization, simply create and save them to a folder called “social media templates.” This way, it’s even easier to update and share with your team.
