Membership and Program Luncheon: Social Media I: Effective and Inclusive Communication via Storytelling
Description: After the rush of an annual campaign, how do you effectively communicate your gratitude to your donors year-round? Until recently, social media has been somewhat of an enigma for small nonprofits, foundations and fundraisers, but it is an essential part of a strong communications plan. With a defined strategy, clear goals and realistic evaluation methods, it can become an affordable, effective tool for every organization to demonstrate their ongoing appreciation to their donors.
