4/18/2012: Social Media Fundraising: Past, Present, and Future
April 18, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm| FREE
Social media fundraising is still a curiosity – big opportunities for some, frustration and challenges for others. We’ll discuss the history of social media fundraising since 2005, and draw lessons from successful campaigns. We will identify specific reasons to start fundraising on social media, and good reasons not to. Finally, you’ll be prepared with a set of easy best practices you can do to prepare for the road ahead.
- When your organization should start
- What successful campaigns look like
- Tie the lessons of direct mail, and online, to social media
- How to prepare for the future
