How many of you who work for nonprofits are getting asked to “come up with an icebucket challenge” for your annual fundraising campaign? Or maybe it’s caught your attention and you are more realistically asking, “What can we learn from the icebucket challenge apply to our year-end giving and integrating social media in fundraising?”
Participating in a local or national giving day may help you work on that second question. Most giving days also provide lots of toolkits, webinars, and other training – and it is free! Take for example, #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back that will take place on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. GivingTuesday is offers a FREE complete suite of tools and webinars on how to do online fundraising with social media effectively.
I’m participating in the GivingTuesday Summer School where you find an instructional video from me discussing how to use giving days like Giving Tuesday to experiment and improve your online fundraising with social media. See you in Summer School!
