We're best at helping organizations with marketing and messaging that is focused on growing donor relationshipswhose needs align with what we offer.

Partner Characteristics

We find that organizations with the following characteristics fit well with our current products and services. If your organization is outside these parameters, but think an Unseen partnership would be beneficial to your growth, please apply and tell us why! We’d love to get to know you and often accept organizations outside of this profile.
1. You have an annual budget somewhere between $20,000 and a $1,000,000 - This size of organization tends to be a good fit with our marketing products. However, if your budget is over this amount but you’ve been grant-dependent and are now launching into donor fundraising, this could be a good fit!
2. A portion of your annual operating budget is raised through donations, rather than grants or family foundations. - This indicates you have a history with fundraising and may have systems in place to build upon.
3. You had at least 20+ donors last year. - Our tools help you connect with current and prospective donors, but we aren't able to help you 'find' new donors. To use our products effectively, it's important that you're able to identify people to connect with and market to.
4. You have a history of success—making a demonstrable impact in the lives of vulnerable people. We work with growing organizations who have established programs and proven leadership.
5. You’re able to designate a project manager / key point of contact from your organization to write content, review and approve projects, and move projects forward to completion.
6. You are a registered 501(c)(3) in the U.S. or are registered as a nonprofit in your organization's country.

What Does it Cost to Work with Unseen?

Time

Projects take time, and we know you’re busy! We work hard to save you time and make our communication as seamless as possible. We typically communicate over email, and may meet via video if needed in order to get projects completed. If you're in another timezone, this may involve some late night or early morning video calls.

Money

Typically, working with Unseen is free. We believe in your work so much that we raise funds just like you to be able to provide our services at no cost to our partners. In turn, we ask that partners help by reporting back stories of success so we can share these with our donors. In rare cases where there are some financial costs, they will be clearly communicated before the start of any project.

Proactive Use

The products we create for you are tools that will only be effective when put into use! We're a great fit for organizations who want to allocate time toward donor relationships and organizational growth.

Project Process
Strategize - We'll talk through your goals and choose projects based on your needs for growth.

Gather Information - We'll collect information from you and discuss creative details. This will include signing documents, writing down design preferences, giving creative input, and sending us additional images. We'll review the creative information we gather and commit to creating the project together.

Build and Refine - We'll select and hire a creative professional or fundraising expert for your project. Unseen will provide feedback to that person to ensure quality. You'll give creative input and timely feedback on drafts.

Launch - We’ll deliver the final approved creative material to you. You’ll distribute the work we’ve created together to help you move towards growth.

Review - We’ll send two surveys asking how the project went and how the product has impacted your organization's growth. The feedback helps us improve and allows us to share your success with donors who will continue to fund future projects.
Partnership Phases
Every product or service that Unseen offers is organized into different phases. Each phase offers sets of products to meet the unique needs of each organization.

All partners begin in Phases 1 and 2 and projects grow in complexity over time. Phase 1 focuses on foundational marketing tools. Our partnership may move toward more complex and expensive products in other phases as your fundraising capacity changes.

We want to see your mission grow! We also want to be wise stewards of our donors' generosity. For this reason, partners progress through phases after having some success in their current phase.

For specific information on products available in each phase, please contact us or visit our products page.
