Nonprofit Social Media Wrap: June 2014

Nonprofit Social Media Wrap

Nonprofit Social Media Wrap – June 2014

This month in the nonprofit social media world, Mobile Bidding was again a hot topic. With the fall season looming, and spring events swinging back into the planning stages, non-profit organizations are attending Mobile Bidding seminars, researching success stories, and planning their own foray into this new technological field.

Let’s start off this month’s social media wrap with something exciting and even a little patriotic: the World Cup. We had a great fundraiser idea around #Newsjacking: holding a World Cup viewing party! What other ways you can tie current events into your next fundraiser?

We also posted a video this month showcasing the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Hope Ball. Greater Giving event solutions and Mobile Bidding jumped into action at the Ball to directly increase fundraising success.

You can tell it’s summer. Our post on creative outdoor event lighting scored a lot of attention—probably because those little umbrellas are so cute! Where’s Mary Poppins?

As item procurement winds up for autumn events, our customers are wondering: how big should the auction be to meet budget? Look no further than our post on auction math. Save time with this simple arithmetic to determine exactly how much you need to procure to meet your budget.

So where to fill the gaps? This month, we tackled the value of a monthly donor compared to a one-time donor. Did you know that a monthly donor gives 42% more each year than one-time donors? Remember: the little things add up, so don’t forget to add a “Recurring Donation” option to your donation page!
