Just a heads up that we’ve posted a new NPO Toolkit and GiveBIG logos to the GiveBIG Resources for Nonprofits page: http://www.seattlefoundation.org/nonprofits/GiveBIG. In the toolkit you’ll find tips on what to do in preparation for GiveBIG. There’s also sample messaging and social media strategies to help with GiveBIG promotion. Please do keep in mind, however, that we’re recommending that you wait until Monday, April 2 to start rallying your communities for GiveBIG.
We also wanted to reiterate what was talked about in yesterday’s webinar and encourage you to use this blog as a forum to share ideas and best practices with your nonprofit peers, and will use Scott F.’s comment on a previous blog post to jumpstart that conversation:
“It was suggested that we nonprofits communicate via this blog to get ideas from each other about what GiveBIG promotions were the most successful last year. So, I’d like to start a discussion to generate ideas. We used social media last year, but I’m interested in what other ways organizations successfully generated donations to earn larger portions of the stretch pool.”
Feel free to add comments to this post!
Well, our GiveBIG Webinar for Nonprofits was scheduled for today, but…we experienced unforseen audio difficulties, which unfortunately meant we had to reschedule the session. Apologies for the inconvenience!
If you want to brave it and try again, please click on a link below to register for one of the following webinar times:
The same material will be covered at both sessions, and the webinar will also be posted in its entirety on our GiveBIG Resources for Nonprofits page.
Also, please note that we are limited to 200 participants per webinar. If you are unable to register for one, there still may be room in the other.
Thanks for your understanding!
