— support for charities
your story is important. tell it well.
We believe that charities play a crucial part in society, helping to meet the needs of people around the world. In a fast-paced, ever-changing world, it can seem like a difficult challenge for charities to communicate effectively and to keep up with new technologies without it being a distraction from some of the key tasks that they have been called to.
How do charities respond – without being left behind? We believe that great communications and good use of media has a key role to play in helping charities stay engaged with their audiences, whether that is those you hope to help, or those who can help you do it.
We work across a range of disciplines to help charities define their communications needs, followed up by creating digital media pieces such as websites, social media channels and other designed elements to help with that task.
Building the bigger picture
Many charities have a website or social media channel because it’s the done thing to do. By helping you determine who your audiences are (or aren’t), our aim at Tentmaker is to help you develop resources that don’t just look good, but also work well and help to serve a clear purpose.
We want to help charities see the bigger picture. We know you’re busy, and we know you’re struggling for resources – but we believe that the charities have some of the most important stories to tell, and we want you to do it well.
There’s more that can be said about that – but it’s probably best said over a coffee.
Website solutions developed for charities
We work with charities to help provide simple solutions to your website and digital communications needs.
We know that not all churches have tech people on hand to help update or maintain a website – our templates are designed to solve that problem, with minimal maintenance required.
Our mid range templates provide a little more flexibility for charities who want a little more content and support in their site. Our modular system of building offers a cost effective way of having a site that both looks good and works well.
We also work with clients who are looking for a unique custom build for their communications needs – we can help in developing your visual identity, your communications strategy and each of the individual elements associated.
Spend as little as possible and as much as necessary.
We offer a discounted rate on all of the work that we undertake for charities, where we are able.
We understand that for many charities, budgets are always tight and often determine the outcome of a project. We also believe that the possibilities to grow your audience and your support base are always there for charities who are prepared to invest both financially and otherwise.
Tentmaker love working with charities who know they can make a difference and are prepared to invest their time and energies into making good things happen. If you are ambitious about producing great work on tight budgets, we’d love to see how we can help.
Tentmaker have produced, and now manage for us, at Culloden-Balloch Baptist Church, a polished looking website. Roddy encouraged us to create branding for the site so it represents who we are and what we want to communicate. This personalisation is something that’s really important to him and now it’s up and running he continues to offer ideas and suggestions as our needs and opportunities change and develop. Features such as social media plugins mean we can easily keep the site both active and current and with our management package Roddy is on hand to deal with any issues that occur. We just need to pick up the phone or drop him a message for a prompt reply - we find it so valuable having this continued support. Thank you Roddy!
