The rise in popularity of social media and email marketing over the past decade has fundamentally changed how we connect with one another. So how can we, as fundraisers, leverage the power and potential of these channels to not only “connect”, but also actively raise funds for our causes and cultivate relationships with our donors?

Join us for breakfast on Thursday, June 20th as Randy Hawthorne shares best practices nonprofits should follow to effectively leverage social media and email for fundraising and new donor acquisition for your nonprofit. You’ll learn:

  • How to launch and maintain an email marketing strategy that consistently engages donors and supporters
  • Tips for growing your email list
  • How to use social media to engage with and expand your fundraising audience 
  • The ways in which social media has dramatically changed nonprofit fundraising
  • Real-world examples from nonprofits who get it right

Randy Hawthorne is Executive Director of The Foundry and Nonprofit Hub in Lincoln. Randy is The Foundry’s (nearly) fearless leader. He directs each team member and oversees the organization’s overall strategy, all on top of running and operating a coworking space. Yeah, he’s a machine. Randy also serves as a focal point for Lincoln’s nonprofit community and provides guidance for startups and nonprofits. He serves on more boards than we can keep track of, but that doesn’t stop him from volunteering and engaging in Lincoln’s theater scene.

PARKING: First hour is free in the Larson and University Square garages both within half a block of The Foundry. Usually there's street parking at that time of day as well.
