Abstract [en]

Non-Profit Organizations (NPO), also called the third sector, are organizations that do not aim to generate revenue and, as the name suggests, profit making is not their goal. However, like any other organization, they have expenses to cover in order to reach their goals. Thus, these organizations have to focus on fund-raising besides the main goals of the organizations. In order to make money, these organizations have to conduct marketing communications. Hence, NPOs marketing communication involves objectives and tools. Iranian NPOs have been active in the last couple of years and they used fund-raising activities in order to attract public funds. They majorly focus on public and social problems and their main aim is to increase public awareness and help people of the society in particular ways. After reviewing the previous studies in the marketing communication, we have come up with the topic, which focuses on the marketing communications of NPOs in Iran. The main goal of this study is to find out the marketing communication objectives and tools of NPOs in Iran. We have used a case study approach in our qualitative research method and our study was conducted on two major NPOs in Iran. After analyzing the collected data, we have come up with the final conclusions. Our study reveals that NPOs main objective is fund-raising and variety marketing communication tools are used by NPOs in order to attract funds. To do so, the NPOs use both digital and traditional marketing communication tools.
