The Colorado Springs YWAM base hosted a luxurious three-day fundraising weekend to meet with their donors, celebrate success, and share their vision to minister to the unreached people in the “10/40 window.” The missions organization is funded largely through donations, so the fundraising event materials were crucial to the nonprofit’s ability to grow in the coming years.

Event identity

For the overall event identity, we were challenged to develop a look was both adventurous and prestigious.The logo and supporting graphic elements were reminiscent of a wax seal. Navy, earthy red, and gold made up the color palette. Curved lines and modern serif typography brought cohesion to the fundraising event materials.

Fundraising materials

We produced a striking printed invitation and simpler email invitations. An extensive program booklet illustrated YWAM’s mission and vision for the future. To complete the fundraising event materials, we designed banners, a presentation template, a partnership menu, donor cards, name badges, and place cards. The event was a great success, raising $388,000 for the nonprofit.
