Charitable Giving Doubled by Twice Blessed

Life for some may be twice as nice, thanks to St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation’s Twice Blessed campaign, a matching grant program now doubling individual contributions made to 23 Minot area non-profit organizations by Dec. 31, 2017.

From Bottineau to Garrison, from a local fire department to a summer camp – Twice Blessed provides an added incentive for charitable giving in north-central North Dakota, matching all gifts up to $5,000 for each participating organization.

KK BOLD’s involvement with the foundation began when Twice Blessed was still a concept. The strategic planning process included establishing its identity by naming the campaign, creating a logo and setting the tone for its long-term impact on the community and surrounding area. By being part of the planning process, marketing and public relations were woven into each step of the project.

“KK BOLD’s experience and expertise in creating websites, marketing plans, timelines and public relations allowed us to roll out our Twice Blessed program on time and with a professional look,” said Shelly C. Weppler, SJCHF president. “Their response to questions during the process was immediate and thoughtful.”

Twice Blessed campaign marketing materials include tools for the participating organizations to reach out to their constituents and a number of vehicles to connect with potential donors and the media, including a new website and print, radio, outdoor, online and social media ads. The campaign was launched at a Nov. 16 news conference, an event organized by the KK BOLD team.

With time remaining in the campaign, Twice Blessed has created a significant uptick in contributions to the non-profits, and the foundation is very pleased with the results. More information about Twice Blessed is available here.
