  • Social media must stress out IT people. That’s probably why they block so many.
  • And new “threats” keep getting created! It’s too much for IT to keep up with.
  • But fundraising is all about relationships. We need to get where the conversations are.
  • USM is already being talked about on Twitter
  • USM is already on LinkedIn
  • USM is already on YouTube. Even a USM prof!
  • In addition to joining conversations with prospects, fundraisers can use social media to keep track of conferences that they couldn’t afford to go to.
  • And conferences their donors might be going to
  • Twitter has been used for raising money. But not by nonprofits.
  • Social media isn’t a replacement to fundraising basics. It’s all about the relationships. But social media can really help us go where the relationships are.
