You should consider Tweetup-style fundraising and/or member events …
* If you are a (c)(6) association, a Tweetup lets you engage your members, support a cause and have fun.
* If you are a (c)(3) nonprofit organization, a Tweetup lets you engage your donors, generate support and have fun
* If your organization seeks younger members, a Tweetup helps you engage them, support a cause and have fun.

From Twestival, Tweetsgiving and TweetUp4Troops, we gleaned 25 tips and techniques that are most valuable in your use of Twitter as a fundraising tool. The full list is divided into three main categories: (a) Planning a Successful Twitter-Based Campaign; (b) Growing the Campaign; and (c) Using Twitter for Your Campaign. We’ve listed the Top 10 in priority order based on crowdsourcing and participants at the 2010 Great Ideas Conference.
