Download the first installment of the Mountain Strong for Nonprofits Participant Toolkit. In it you will find messaging, sample copy to use in your newsletter, ideas for social media and sample emails to use with: current donors/volunteers/staff, donors who come through MS4NP and any community or business partners you have.

Use the following graphic with your MS4NP donor thank you email, asking the donor to use it as their social media profile picture (sample email copy provided in the Toolkit).

Donate Button Tips

Since no funds flow through the Mountain Strong for Nonprofits website or EPNRC, you must provide the html code for us to embed your PayPal or ColoradoGives donate button on the site.

If you have a PayPal account set up to accept donations, here are instructions on how to get the html code for your donate button.

If you participate in, follow the instructions to get your “Donate Now” button in the General “Tools & Resources” section of your Nonprofit Dashboard.

If you don’t currently have a method to accept online donations, check to see if you qualify to join ColoradoGives or get more information about PayPal and set up a nonprofit account. You may also provide a link to whatever donation information you have on your organization’s website.
