Social Media and Nonprofits: Maximize Donor Engagement
Thursday, June 25, 2009 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (EDT)
This online workshop offers an overview of successful social media strategies that nonprofit and faith-based organizations can embrace to maximize donor engagement. The use of the Internet to make philanthropic decisions is significant and will continue to grow.
Does your organization have an online giving portal? It should. As online fundraising tools have matured, they have become more user friendly and no longer require technical expertise. These new tools allow organizations to communicate more effectively with prospective donors and increase contributions. Social media levels the playing field.
Research indicates that donors want to be connected with organizations they support beyond giving money, and that these connections lead to more donations. Social media is a means to this end. As the economic downturn forces donors to re-evaluate relationships with nonprofits, now’s the right time to engage donors and create a lasting relationship.
In this workshop, we will explore:
1. What is social media?
2. Why does social media work for nonprofits?
3. The pros and cons of social media
4. What types of donors use social media?
5. What type of donor engagement are you looking for?
6. What are the first steps in social media?
7. How to utilize Facebook
8. How to utilize Twitter
9. How to utilize YouTube
10. Case studies of how successful nonprofits use social media
