Social Media’s Role in Online Fundraising
18 Dec 2016
Online fundraising continues to gain popularity – and social media deserves some of the credit. Acting as a distribution vehicle to help spread the message among our online communities, social media’s role is pivotal to the success – or failure – of a fundraising campaign.
I was recently asked to participate in an interview, on the topic, for a fundraising course through Central Penn College. As a trustee for the Central Penn College Education Foundation, I was happy to contribute to the course lead by professor, Pat Brosious.
We explore the following topics:
– Why online donations are so popular
– How to leverage your networks for successful crowdfunding campaigns
– The role of website design and social media in fundraising
– The profit in non-profit fundraising
– How to harness an emotional impact with your audience
– Ways to stay fresh and relevant online
