Find Fall Fundraising Friends at NetSquared Meetups
Fall has arrived, and with it comes fundraising season. More than one-third of charitable giving happens in the last three months of the year and the emergence of Giving Tuesday (on November 28 this year) makes the year’s end even more critical for charities. Feeling overwhelmed? Your local NetSquared group is here to help with free, in-person events being held across the USA and the globe.
September is HUGE for NetSquared – our community has scheduled 166 events so far and the month isn't over yet! Let's build on the momentum by making sure your group has events scheduled for October and November too.
We Can Help You Tell the Story of Your Nonprofit's Impact
TechSoup's annual Storymakers campaign launches September 5. We know that good stories power fundraising and marketing, so join one of our free events to discover powerful case studies and connect with digital storytelling experts in your community. If you don't have a local group (I can help fix that problem!) there's also free online guides and a global tweet chat October 5 using the hashtag #storymakers2017.
Here at TechSoup, we're big on stories. Effective storytelling means nonprofits can reach more people, touch more hearts, and create bigger impact.
TechSoup's NetSquared meetups will bring local nonprofits free digital storytelling workshops to more than 40 cities between August and October. Storymakers presents a unique opportunity to participate in storytelling education and capacity-building with a focus on using Adobe Spark to create social media graphics. The world is better when nonprofits can better tell their story.
tl;dr: After 10 years NetSquared broke the 100 active groups barrier. Yay!
NetSquared is TechSoup’s global network of volunteer-led nonprofit technology meetups. We're the answer to the question “where can I get support to use technology effectively at my nonprofit?” Event attendees build their networks and learn practical technology skills to support their programs, marketing and fundraising.
A reminder that meetup growth is STRONGLY correlated to scheduling monthly events. After being inactive for several years @karenb and team restarted the group in January 2016. And ever since growth has skyrocketed. LA Tech4Good is now the fifth largest group!
