DEFINITION of 'Nonprofit Marketing'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Nonprofit Marketing'

A nonprofit organization can approach marketing in the same way as a for-profit business. It should identify its target market (the one it wants to reach), develop marketing materials to send to that target market, and determine the objectives that a marketing campaign should meet. In this sense, the nonprofit organization follows the four P's of marketing: product, place, price and promotion.
