The content for this year’s Institute was New Skills for a Complex World. This post is an aggregate of information and resources. As I am reviewing all I learned, future posts will include how I am applying information to my work. This post includes resources from the 2012 Institute.
I have aggregated news and info I have found useful to our work as nonprofit professionals and fundraisers. Great info from Pamela Grow, Clay Myers-Bowman, Beth Kanter and more….
Recently I have found some great infographics telling a great story as well as sharing advice. Links are here to give credit where credit is due! All graphics have been posted to my Pinterest.
In it’s sixth year, AFP DC and DMAW have continued to successfully build the content for the Bridge Conference on direct response and fundraising. Congrats to everyone volunteered to make it a success. You can follow the twitter feed #bridgeconf and @bridgeconf.
The purpose of this post is share my thoughts on promiscuous networking. MCON2012 has set up a GREAT website allowing registered attendees to share profile information, connect to Twitter, chat in the virtual lobby or networking lounge and chat rooms – all before the conference starts. There are some attendees I have known for many years (making us so NOT Millennial) and others I am delighted to meet. So I am following as many people as I can – reading what they are sharing and very much looking forward to their insights into the next generation of fundraisers, fundraising, communicators and more.
With or without Amazon-like information on donor behavior, donors move around, change giving patterns, jump channels and hear from friends and families on a variety of platforms. Thus a really yummy fundraising buffet is a necessity; information and message need to be consistent especially during a campaign.
Whether you are working at a large or small organization, there are things you can learn about social marketing and direct response from the Care2 webinar last week. They have shared the slides and webinar for your viewing and listening pleasure. You can also check out the Twitter feed at #c2webinar.
Many thanks go out to the Founders of Nonprofit 2.0 Allyson Kapin, Geoff Livingston and Shireen Mitchell for another great unconference. You can review the twitter feed at #nonprofit20.
The Chronicle of Philanthropy 2012 Technology Guide has some great information in it.
In the March 8 issue of The Chronicle of Philanthropy the front page article on visualizing data got my attention. I have to say – how well we share our story has always been at the heart of fundraising success. Telling our story using graphics is a GREAT idea! Not that we weren’t doing it before – but the graphics were photos and I will agree really boring pie and bar charts.
