Tap Into Effective Social Media Fundraising

While many nonprofits have social media accounts, they have not had either the bandwidth nor knowledge to effectively leverage and incorporate into a successful fundraising plan.

Highlights Include:

  • Detail an effective strategy to build your presence on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Linked In.
  • Execute a plan to engage donors and constituents
  • Detailing several strategies for donor cultivation including beneficiary profiles, anecdotal stories, and activities
  • How to launch social media and convert online giving campaigns to fund specific programs
  • Working with GoFundMe, Slack, Constant Contact, and other platforms for success (these aren’t social media)
  • Fostering a Younger Generation society and other group networks effectively
  • Understanding the pitfalls and overcoming the challenges of fundraising via social media
  • Creating inventive and dynamic social media campaigns to improve your outreach while raising additional funds too

This 75 minute seminar includes a Q&A and discussion of strategic problem solving and Development How To’s.
