October Event Themes

If you're looking for event ideas you can schedule an event that aligns with TechSoup's content calendar. October has three big themes:

Online Security for Nonprofits

October is National Cyber-Security Awareness Month so we've created an event recipe. You can show a video or recruit a local expert, and we've got discussion questions and a downloadable 12 Tips to Stay Safer Online guide in English, French and Spanish.


Storymakers2017, TechSoup's annual digital storytelling campaign, continues until October 31. There's a contest with $10,00 in prizes, free webinars, and guides.

More than 40 NetSquared groups have already scheduled a #storymakers2017 event. The slides and event-planning guides are available for download.

Google Analytics

It's free. It's powerful. It's probably already installed on 90% of nonprofit websites. But it's also complicated and most organizations struggle to use it well.

Finding a guest presenter is easy because this topic isn't nonprofit-specific. Any web marketer or developer should be able to provide a one hour overview. You can also search for local Google Analytics meetups to find potential presenters and here are three example event descriptions.
