Nonprofit Video Production: Hope Is Our Heartbeat
Every non profit organization needs the support of their contributors to assist them in solving problems and changing lives. Engagement is critical. According to online fundraising platform Classy.org, 60-90% of all first-time donors cease to contribute to the same organization the following year. Crafting powerful videos that engage donors for non profits, charities, and international NGOs is at the heart of what we do at Hepburn Creative.
We provide organizations with powerful videos that connect with people.
"Hepburn Creative is everything that you want in a video production team – professional, personable, and creative! Their hearts are to tell the untold stories of good taking place around the world. This motivation comes through in all aspects of their work. They listened to our needs and captured our vision. The end products are pieces that effectively tell Outside the Bowl’s story and moves donors to become more involved."
Becky Rosaler, Development Director, Outside The Bowl
"Working with Hepburn Creative has been one of the biggest highlights of my professional career. David and Holly Hepburn have a passion for storytelling that is ignited by their love for the poor, the voiceless & unseen people of this world. Through their amazing creativity and insight, they brought my team’s video ideas to life, telling the story of Compassion in a way that we could not have done without them. I cannot recommend Hepburn Creative enough!"
Jacquie Parella, Marketing Manager, Compassion International
Engage Your Donors with Video
Stories are the spark! We know that the fastest, most consistently successful way to engage donors and contributors is to show them what you do, and then encourage them to take the next step with a strong call to action. Videos are powerful for your non profit: at fundraising events, on your website, social media, and email appeals. We tailor your video to multiple uses across your campaign.
Engage Your Donors on Social Media
Social media is a huge platform for non profits to engage with their donors. Networking company Cisco forecasts that by 2021, 82% of online traffic will be video. On every major social network, the use of video is exploding (In 2015, Facebook announced 500 million users were watching video every day). Viewers engage with video! And, with the right content, are likely to re-share your video to their network of friends. Partner with us to create a series of videos optimized for social networks for maximum reach.
Tell Stories of Impact & Excitement
Once new donors catch your vision, it’s important to keep them engaged with your non profit and defeat donor churn, that 60-90% loss we mentioned above. To do that, we love traveling to where your organization works, whether in the US or around the world, and capturing the stories of the impact as it’s happening.
Donors Connect with a Familiar Face
Give immediate credibility to the work your organization does by sending our team with a staff member, or someone who is a public face of your non profit, to where the stories are happening. Check out these examples from Outside the Bowl, a nonprofit we partner with in Haiti, Mexico, and beyond. They used these videos of Chris Brown, Chairman of the Board and Spokesperson to engage their donor base at an annual banquet, boosting fundraising tens of thousands of dollars to feed more kids and impact communities.
Your vision is our heartbeat.
