Online Giving & the Holiday Season @ Western Oregon University
Jul 24 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Colby Reade, Director of Communications, Murdock Charitable Trust

Social media can be a tantalizing resource for nonprofits as a means of reaching a broad audience at a relatively low cost. But how can you REALLY maximize your social media presence in a way that will translate into donations? Is it reasonable to expect that your Facebook page could turn into a regular revenue stream? How do you maximize your social presence for holiday fundraisers like #GivingTuesday?

In this session, Colby Reade will walk through best practices for nonprofit social media management, both during a specific fundraiser and throughout the year.
