Facebook Fundraising: Why We Ran Toward it While Others Ran from It
Recorded On: 06/16/2020
The line between marketing and fundraising continues to blur. It is becoming increasingly important to reach donors where they are at, and where a lot of donors are at is Facebook. In their first four years, Facebook fundraisers have raised over $2 Billion for nonprofits across the globe, but it’s not a perfect system, so many organizations have been slow to prioritize this platform in their fundraising plans. We’ll explore best practices for attracting worldwide donors and appealing to existing donors through real-time storytelling and capturing donor data. You’ll gain tips for stewardship and other scalable takeaways that you’ll be able to implement immediately, regardless of staff size and resources.
