Trends in Digital Fundraising

December 18, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Squirrel Hill

Social media is changing the way we do business today.  It is a great way to communicate with your constituents.  Social media is increasing our ability to build relationships, understand volunteer and donor interests, solicit gifts, and provide a voice for advocates.
This session will introduce you to social media tools and how they impact nonprofit fundraising.  The training will cover how you can make viral fundraising requests, share news and promote events in real time, and use social media tools for prospect research.  It will address the social media guidelines your agency should have in place and how to fulfill your donors’ need for association via social media.

Attendees will learn how other nonprofits are currently using these tools to advance their mission and raise awareness and funds.  They will learn about free and paid tools for social media that they will be able to use at their own agencies.  Also, they will learn about trends and recent changes to tools they may already use.

The speaker, Dave Tinker, CFRE, FAFP, is the Vice President of Advancement at ACHIEVA.  He is also on the faculty of the Master of Information Strategy, Systems, and Technology program at Muskingum University.  He is a past president of AFP WPA, and has served on numerous local, national, and international boards and committees.  He is one of only nine Distinguished Fellows of AFP International.  A former graduate assistant at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, Dave holds a Master of Public Affairs with a concentration in Nonprofit Management from Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis and a Masters of Information Strategy, Systems and Technology from Muskingum University.

The fee to attend this workshop is $20 per person which must be paid at the door with either cash or check made payable to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.  Space is limited and registration is required by calling the Nonprofit Resource Center at 412.622.6277.
