Be There: Social Media for Nonprofits-8/22 @ UCLA


We know that most of you are busy running your own nonprofit organizations, as well as serving on nonprofit boards and participating in side projects designed to make the world a better place. This post is for you, as well as those of you with nonprofit types in your networks.

We’re heading to Los Angeles next Monday, 8/22, with a program that will once again share practical tips and tools for fundraising, marketing, and advocacy. Our SF, DC, and NYC conferences were all sold out and received rave reviews, and we need your help to ensure a packed house at UCLA.

We’re giving away two tickets to the GuideStar users who get the most comments or likes on a Facebook post on our Wall, or who get the most ReTweets on a message with the #sm4np hashtag. Just use tag GuideStar in your wall post, or include #GuideStar in your Tweet, so we know that you are a GuideStar user.

Come join us for a “Twitter Meets TED” format featuring top authors and experts, or you can just show up for the networking reception and book release party for Nonprofit Management 101. We’ve got top brass from Facebook, LinkedIn, and Causes, plus leaders of PETA, NTEN, and social fundraising platforms like Fundly and Razoo.

See you on the 22nd and please contact us with any questions or suggestions.

Toward Solutions,

Darian Rodriguez Heyman & Ritu Sharma
