Many nonprofit organizations I speak with have tried social media fundraising before with less-than-stellar results. However, I always preach about the benefits of social media, so I’m devoting Episode 8 in Season 3 to the best practices for these online fundraisers! In this episode, we chat with Stacy Nunnally from Safe Haven Family Shelter and the Tennessee Imagination Library and Lara Buckheit from DLyted about the importance of consistency in your social media strategy, how to add an online fundraising component to your major fundraising events, and how to find and activate influencers who support your organization.
I just released Season 2, Episode 5 of my podcast, where I talked about three fundraising ideas that are super easy and inexpensive to implement in your nonprofit! These are great for organizations whose boards and staff feel fresh out of fundraising ideas, or maybe just don't have the time to plan out a labor-intensive fundraiser right now.
In this episode of the Nonprofit Jenni Show podcast, I talked about some inadvertent legal mistakes I've seen pop up in the nonprofit world lately. I asked Rachel Schaffer Lawson of Schaffer Law Firm to come back on the show and answer some questions about employee vs. contractor issues, legal requirements for fundraising, and programs which may not belong in your nonprofit organization.
In this episode of the Nonprofit Jenni Show podcast, I talked about nonprofit events... ALL the nonprofit events! Whether they be client-serving, fundraising, awareness raising, or any other type of -ing, I can bet you we discussed it on this episode. My guests on Part 2 included Lyndsay Wilkinson from Youth Villages and Audra Almond Harvey from abrasiveMedia.
How do I calculate the real ROI of my nonprofit's fundraising events?
