The Power of Naming 

Your brand is a story unfolding across all customer touchpoints." - Jonah Sachs 

Your nonprofit brand is more than the name of your monthly giving or membership program, reflecting your organization and its values. A brand has the power to evoke emotions and inspire action in potential donors. Ultimately, the sum of all the touchpoints impacts your financial predictability.  

Before we jump into the 130 ideas for a monthly giving program name, let’s take a moment to review why branding is important.  

  • Visibility and Recognition: A strong brand helps you stand out in a crowded “marketplace” of causes and organizations. Donors have a plethora of options and frequently have to decide which cause will get their support. Something as simple as the font, colors, or logo can create curiosity to learn more about your cause. 
  • Trust and Credibility: A well-established brand builds trust and credibility with donors, volunteers, beneficiaries, and partners. It communicates professionalism, reliability, and a commitment to your organization’s mission.
  • Consistency: Branding ensures consistency and coherence in communication across various platforms and materials. It helps convey a unified message about the organization’s values, goals, and impact.
  • Differentiation: In a competitive nonprofit landscape, branding helps differentiate an organization from others working in the same field. It highlights what makes the organization unique and why supporters should choose to engage with it.
  • Fundraising Success: Branding plays a crucial role in fundraising success by influencing donor perceptions and behavior. A compelling brand story and identity can attract more donors, increase donation amounts, and drive donor retention. 


Best Practices for Naming Your Monthly Giving Program 

Now that we understand why naming is important to your program’s success, let’s look at 10 best practices to keep in mind when finalizing your name. 

  1. Reflect Your Mission: Choose a name that reflects the mission and values of your organization. The name should resonate with your cause and convey the impact donors will have by joining the program.
  1. Align with Branding: Ensure the name aligns with your organization’s overall branding and messaging. It should fit seamlessly with your brand identity and reinforce the values and personality of your organization.
  1. Be Clear and Memorable: Opt for a name that is clear, concise, and easy to remember. Avoid overly complicated or abstract names that may confuse potential donors or be forgettable.
  1. Appeal to Your Audience: Consider your target audience and what would appeal to them. The name should speak to their interests, motivations, and aspirations, making them feel connected to the program and its purpose.
  1. Highlight Benefits: Emphasize the benefits of joining the program in the name itself. Use words like "sustainer," "champion," “club,” “circle,” or "partner" to convey the idea of ongoing support and involvement.
  1. Differentiate Your Program: Ensure the name distinguishes your program from other monthly giving programs for your cause, community, and in the nonprofit sector more broadly.
  1. Inclusivity: Choose a name that is inclusive and welcoming to all potential donors. Avoid names that may alienate certain demographics or give the impression of exclusion.
  1. Keep it Timeless: Select a name that has staying power and will remain relevant over time. Consider how the name may evolve with your organization and its programs as they grow and adapt to changing needs.
  1. Test and Get Feedback: Before finalizing the name, test it with a small group of stakeholders and/or donors to gauge their reactions. Get feedback on the clarity, appeal, and relevance of the name to ensure it resonates with your target audience.
  1. Check for Legality: Check for any legal restrictions or trademark issues related to the name you choose. Ensure it complies with relevant regulations and ethical standards in the nonprofit sector.
