Nonprofit Tagline Awards

Great Words Promoting Good Causes

A high-impact tagline is an essential tool for any nonprofit fighting to deliver its message in a crowded, competitive world.

To guide and motivate more organizations to strengthen their taglines, the annual Getting Attention Nonprofit Tagline Awards (a.k.a. The Taggies) recognizes organizations both large and small that have earned top honors for their attention-getting taglines, demonstrating again that an organization of any size can craft a powerful, pithy motto to build awareness and connect with its key audiences.
