Social Media Templates

Social media templates can make a big impact on small nonprofits. Many don’t have a graphic designer on the team and run out of time to create as many social media graphics as they need. Canva for Nonprofits helps solve that problem by offering thousands of free templates so that fundraisers can consistently promote branded campaigns across social media.


When working with templates, be sure to:

  • Use your brand fonts

  • Use your brand’s color numbers

  • Insert your logo

  • Pick a style that aligns with your brand

Here’s an example.


Let’s say you chose this Instagram template for your organization’s bake sale fundraiser:

It’s beautiful! But you’ll need to change the fonts, colors, add your logo, and a website link at the bottom. See here:


Pro Tip: Create a brand kit on your team’s Canva account so that you don’t have to manually keep inserting your fonts, colors, and logos over and over again.


After selecting 10-20 templates, you think would work for your organization, simply create and save them to a folder called “social media templates.” This way, it’s even easier to update and share with your team.
