FREE MARKETING TOOL

Canva is an easy and free marketing tool for nonprofits. Trips for Kids National has been using this online design platform for our social media posts, newsletter headers, caption photos, inserts, appeals and so much more!

If you want to sign-up for this tool, visit THIS LINK to learn more. You must have your own nonprofit license to apply. If you are not affiliated with a nonprofit, there is a free public version with useful, but limited features. You do have the option to upgrade for a nominal monthly fee.

Would you like training on how to use Canva? Let Amy know by completing out this 30 second poll.
