With the rise of social media, many nonprofits are exploring new ways of fundraising, advocating, and conducting outreach online. This workshop will help participants understand how effective multi-channel online communications work, using examples from health industry nonprofits and more. Our emphasis won't be on technical 'how tos', but rather strategies, with particular emphasis on the question of return on investment from the nonprofit CEO's point of view.
