In this recording from The Digital Nonprofit conference Chris Brandt, former ED of Music Heals, shares best practices for stewarding relationships and raising money with social media.

Social Media isn’t just your first point of contact with current and prospective donors, volunteers, and the media – it’s often the only one. The risk of not talking is that no one knows that you exist. How would you evaluate your organizations presence on social media? Are you involved in the conversation, either through the org’s channels or your own? You can’t be seen until you learn how to see.

Just the Highlights – The Digital Nonprofit 2019 Report

We can’t believe another year has come and passed! We’re so incredibly thankful to all of our sponsors, presenters, and volunteers – we absolutely couldn’t have done it without you.

With over 250 dedicated nonprofit professionals attending it was our biggest event yet, and we can’t help but look back on this conference with a huge smile (and not just because of the waffles and ice cream! But come on, they were pretty amazing, right?).

We’re humbled by the feedback and gratitude we received, and we wanted to take a few moments to share some of it with you as well. Here are a few highlights from the event, the numbers, the pictures, and the quotes that keep us inspired to do it again, bigger and better next year.

Charts: attendees by work area and role of attendees

With a wide variety of work area types from attendees, we think we really hit our stride with a variety of presentations and topics discussed this year. There was something for everyone, and we hope we can outdo ourselves next year.

Just a Few of Our Favourite Additions to #DNP2019

  • The Workbook – Beautifully designed and integrated to the day, attendees couldn’t help themselves from taking pictures of it, sharing it on social media, and using it to take home insights and notes.
  • The Ice Cream Bar – It was a huge hit, if you missed it, you really missed out. Maybe next year we will save some of those waffles to add as toppings 🙂
  • The New Branding – Our snappy new look has us fired up to keep going, taking this community and this annual conference even further.
