Premier Studios is proud to announce its first-place award at the Kansas City-based association Nonprofit Connect
’s annual Philly Awards
Premier Studios won for digital design and development in the “best website” category for work with national disaster relief organization Heart to Heart International
. The category was for organizations with an annual operating budget greater than $1 million.
The Nonprofit Connect Philly Awards draws an elite crowd of competitors ranging from marketing and communications agencies to association and nonprofit organizations. This year’s awards program was held at the Kansas City Convention Center
“It is our unyielding belief,” said Gerald Smith
, founder and CEO, Premier Studios, “that missional brands
like Heart to Heart International deserve excellence in creative communication as much as or more than any brand in the for-profit marketplace. It is our goal to deliver it for them.”
The website, www.hearttoheart.org
, was designed with the primary goal of supporting the mission of Heart to Heart International — to transform lives through service, one volunteer and one community at a time
. The new site has empowered Heart to Heart to more effectively push out information and pull in support from the organization’s more than 60,000 constituents and 6 million prospects. Four months after launch, online fundraising has increased by 200% and donor acquisition by 300.
Premier Studios was also honored with a second-place award in the category of “best video” for its Heart to Heart International Joplin Volunteer Spotlight video
about a volunteer’s experience with relief efforts in Joplin.
