We know the struggle: Your nonprofit only has a certain amount of budget to put towards content and collateral, and it can be hard to find the money for things like music for your storytelling videos or design software to help your website pop.

Fortunately, the Internet is here to help – we’ve found three resources that allow you to download and use collateral for free, without licensing fees!


That’s right, Moby of electronic music fame has put together a site of free music for anyone needing a ditty or two for their independent project or not-for-profit film. Moby’s offering up over 150 tracks to choose from, and encourages everyone to share their projects with the mobygratis community online. So long as it’s for non-commercial use, you’ve got Moby’s music at your fingertips – perfect for backing a tutorial video or inspired bit of storytelling on the part of your charity.

Canva for Nonprofits

If you’re a 501c3 registered charity with a team of 10 members or less, you’re eligible to get a free subscription to some premium design and illustration tools. Canva was created especially to help nonprofits tell their cause story in beautiful and engaging ways, along with brand kits and marketing materials free for the customizing. Plus, the application process is quick and easy, which means you’ll be up and running with some spiffy new designs in no time.

YouTube Nonprofit Program

Even YouTube is getting in on helping nonprofits! With their special program, nonprofits can add “donation cards” that pop up throughout their videos (perhaps videos soundtracked by mobygratis music?). This allows your donors to easily give while watching, plus you can use “link anywhere cards” if you’d rather direct viewers to a specific landing page. Your nonprofit simply needs to have a YouTube channel, and then to apply to Google for Nonprofits.

So now that your nonprofit is equipped with some fancy designs, how about some solid fundraising software? Schedule a call with us today!
