EXTENDED ABSTRACT - As the nonprofit sector becomes increasingly competitive, it is critical for nonprofit organizations to become more brand centered and clearly differentiate themselves. Although an abundance of empirical work focuses on developing strategies for creating strong brands and demonstrates the concrete benefits of doing so (Aaker 1991; Keller 2000; Keller 1993), most of this work implicitly addresses the for-profit sector. There is very little empirical work that addresses strategies for nonprofit organizations.
