Dedicated to helping you fulfill your mission

A committed team with big hearts for nonprofits

Our History

Founded in 1999, Element 74 is a digital marketing, website, and software development company located in Southeast Missouri. From the very beginning, Element 74 has supported and enjoyed working with community organizations and nonprofits. After merging with Red Letter Communications in late 2019, our team expanded in expertise and capabilities, but our core values remain very much the same. We consider it a privilege to support the mission of nonprofits.
We are passionate about working with nonprofits. Every day we work to understand the challenges nonprofits are facing and seek to be part of the solution. Our aim is to earn your trust and become a long-term technical partner for your organization. We are excited to get to know your organization and provide a solution that will help you focus less on reporting and more on your mission.

With a unique blend of industry and software expertise,
