I presented these slides during the Network for Good Nonprofit 911 Webinar on 12.4.12. Here's a brief description and if you have any questions, get in touch at sydney_at_causes_dot_com.

Causes.com is the world's largest platform for social change. At Causes, we understand that it takes a community of people participating in collective action, not one campaign alone, to create a movement for lasting change. Our tools help you bridge the gap between your fundraising, community building and other campaign work, so that as you achieve immediate goals you also build for the future. We'll cover how to put these principles to work on Causes to create a great donation experience that helps build your community and achieve your short- and long-term goals.
