Fundraising Summit - Let's get social!

This event is offered in partnership with the Initiative Foundation and Nonprofit Plus.


Let’s take some of the overwhelm out of the mania of social media. Learn the best strategies for gaining ground in the social media arena. What platform is best? What makes a great campaign? How do you cut through all the noise to get noticed? Will we ever go viral? What tools can I use to get it all done and help us stand out – without it becoming my fulltime job? Get the answers to these questions and more from Janet Cobb in this practical workshop for fundraising with social media. You will learn different styles and methods and leave with samples and actual posts you’ve created that are ready to go!

Nonprofit Community Impact Funding Review Day

Sourcewell will award tens of thousands of dollars to local nonprofit organizations through Community Impact Funding. However, Sourcewell doesn't select the projects, you do! Join us for Community Impact Funding Review Day and if you are affiliated with a 501c3 nonprofit in the region, you have a vote. Applicants will present their project and then participants will then have time to ask questions and rank projects for funding.
