Social Media Webinars



Meeting Description:

Are you interested in learning how your organization can use social media to raise money? Maybe you’re skeptical about whether this is something you should spend your time on? Perhaps this is a fad that will be gone next year, just in time to learn another new tool. Attend this webinar and learn more about social media and how other organizations are using Facebook, Twitter, and blogging to not only raise awareness of their organization, but to raise money.

Kami Griffiths will interview John Haydon and Chris Garrett to hear several examples of how nonprofits and libraries have benefited from integrating social media into their communications and fundraising plans. Discover how these tools can help you identify supporters and turn them into funders.

This webinar is for people who are beginning to explore social media and have questions on how to get started.
