Developing a Long-Term, Donor-Driven Video Strategy

Time and time again, the video experts at See3 have been asked the same question by nonprofit communications professionals: "How can I make my video go viral?!" The way they see it, it's not enough to make a viral video. They want to help you make video that makes an impact.

With end-of-year fundraising and #ILGive just around the corner, it's more important than ever to be thinking about how you can use all of your communications tools - including video - to drive donations.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How great storytelling can help you raise more money for the long-term
  • Strategies for making engaging, audience-centric nonprofit videos
  • Tips and tricks to develop more cheap (or free!) video content

Webinar 3

9/23 at 10am CST

Fundraising in Communities of Color

Communities of color remain a largely untapped resource when it comes to fundraising. However, as fundraisers begin to turn their development efforts towards more diverse populations, there remains the additional work of understanding the giving patterns represented within communities of color and how those patterns translate into actual dollars.

We’ll debunk the myth that people of color are not philanthropic, gain greater insight into the dos and don’ts of engaging with diverse communities, and most importantly, start a conversation about how to develop inclusive and sustainable organizations through the cultivation of a more diverse donor base.

Speakers include Juan Calixto, JeeYeun Lee, and Deidra Somerville.
