Profit from our non-profit expertise

Five Star Marketing serves the non-profit sector in part as a way to use our talents for good.
Our philosophy is one of making a difference even if just for one of those we serve.

Parable of the Starfish…

One morning an elderly man was walking on a nearly deserted beach. He came upon a boy surrounded by thousands and thousands of starfish. As eagerly as he could, the youngster was picking them up and throwing them back into the ocean.

Puzzled, the older man looked at the young boy and asked, “Little boy, what are you doing?”

The youth responded without looking up, “I’m trying to save these starfish, sir.”

The old man chuckled aloud, and queried, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

Holding a starfish in his hand, the boy turned to the man and, gently tossing the starfish into the water, said, “It will make a difference to that one!”

Systems for Non-Profit Organizations



StarfishCRM is an online hosted solution for non-profits to use to manage their constituent database. It provides a flexible server in the cloud, accessible by all team members all over the world, to manage contacts, activities, events, donation tracking, relationships and email campaigns.

StarfishCRM implementations come with setup and training to help your organization get off to the right start. There are no computers to buy, software to install or in house support personnel to pay.

If your organization does not have a central easy to access and use constituent management system then give us a call and we’ll walk you through how to get started and what StarfishCRM can do for your group.


StarfishDonate is an innovative way to transform the way you think about fundraising. StarfishDonate is an online hosted solution for non-profits to put their fund raising campaigns online and to take full advantage of social media and the capital locked in the relationships of their volunteers, board members and supporters. The system can be implemented for two different objectives:

Fund Raising Campaigns

Imagine having all your supporters and volunteers reaching out via their networks of friends, family and associates to raise money for your cause. Then imagine those new folks learning about your mission and pledging online with their credit cards to support your cause through your volunteers. This system can dramatically multiply your “reach” by your volunteers using their social media and email contacts to tell their/your story and ask for support. The system includes full credit card processing, backend reporting and participant management. Funds go directly into your bank account and pricing is not based on a percentage of funds raised so you can budget easily.

Mission Team Fund Raising

There are tens of thousands of mission teams preparing to go on missions somewhere in the world each month. Many of them put on spaghetti dinners, bake sales and every other form of inefficient fund raising effort trying to raise support for their mission. Non-profits can use StarfishDonate to provide their teams an online funding system that allows them to leverage the internet, social media and online donations for the benefit of their teams. The end result is mission participants increase the “reach” of the organizations mission, obtain more support individually and allows the team to contribute more money to each project than using the traditional model.

If your non-profit is involved in organizing mission teams that need to raise their own support then you need to contact us for a demo of StarfishDonate today to see what you are missing.


We provide our clients hosting for our Starfish products but also for all their web needs. Service can include as much or as little as you need. Most clients enjoy the opportunity to have Five Star as their go to guys for all things on the web.

The number one need we find most organizations have is the ability to maintain their own website with updates, news and simple changes without having to call someone to have it changed. Five Star specializes in creating websites for clients and then showing them how they can maintain all the basics themselves. This freedom translates into savings and the ability for them to communicate quickly with their world.

If you are sick and tired of having to call “the web guy” every time you want to change something on your website then call us to explore how we can transform your abilities to grow and expand.
