Social media and nonprofits

Social media can make a great difference for nonprofit organizations. A well-developed social media campaign can help build online communities around nonprofits’ causes, create collaborative environments and at the same time increase  fundraising. Now, the Social Media Club of Richmond, ConnectRichmond, HYPE, The Hodges Partnership, and Floricane join forces for a workshop and networking event for nonprofits on Nov. 29 at the Library of Virginia. My colleague Jeff South and I will deliver the keynote on our students’ social media campaigns for nonprofits through the IYLEP Social Media Institute.

The “Social Media for Nonprofits Conference” will start at 2:30 p.m. with small-group workshops on social media marketing, fundraising and community building
(register here for tickets, also valid for reception). The workshops are followed by a networking reception with the Social Media Club at 5:30 p.m. (buy tickets here, if you only want to attend the reception). Our keynote ““Between Iraq and A Hard Place: Social Media Lessons for the Nonprofit Community” is scheduled from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.
