42 Free Nonprofit Webinars for August 2017

Terry Ibele 27 July 2017 2 comments

free nonprofit webinarsEvery month I compile the internet's biggest list of nonprofit webinars.

This month I noticed a lot of webinars on fundraising trends and strategies, which is perfect timing considering September is one of the busiest months for fundraisers.

And if you've ever worried your organization could have some hidden legal risks, we have a free webinar coming up on August 23 with Erin McClarty, nonprofit attorney and strategist, on five of the most common legal issues she sees nonprofits face, and how to avoid them (plus some great resources to help you reduce your risk).

Now, without further ado, here are 42 free nonprofit webinars for August 2017:

 

1) Advanced Crowdfunding Strategies

August 1st, 1:00 PM (ET)

“I created a crowdfunding campaign, but why isn’t anyone giving to it?” This may be the most frequently asked question among crowdfunders today. The reality is, crowdfunding is more than just launching a page and waiting for the internet to shower you with money. You have to have a plan. This workshop is a can’t-miss for anyone trying to crack this code. 

Join Dana Ostomel, founder of Deposit a Gift and Firespring’s leading authority on crowdfunding, for a game-changing workshop that takes you beyond the basics and into the nitty-gritty of successful donation-based crowdfunding. You’ll learn how to optimize your campaigns and how to “work your network” to launch strong and market them successfully, plus:

  • 5 effective planning strategies.
  • How to recruit and manage your online street team.
  • Why it’s important to include your staff.
  • How to execute a soft launch.
  • The importance of an appreciation strategy.
  • Action steps you can take today.

 

2) Fundraising 101: The Fundraising Cycle - What Is It, and How Do You Make It Work for Your Mission?

August 1st, 3:00 PM (ET)

The basic fundraising cycle applies to all types of nonprofits and all sorts of campaigns, from the annual campaign to support your local animal shelter to the multi-million-dollar capital campaign for a major university. The fundraising cycle is the foundation for all development efforts, and it pays to know how to work it effectively.

Why?

Fundraising is much more than asking. Donors’ reasons for giving are complex, so development professionals must understand how to engage with donors effectively at each step in the cycle. What motivates donors? What keeps current donors committed to your mission? What methods can you use to motivate new donors to give and remain a part of your nonprofit’s family?

There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to donor engagement. Every successful fundraising campaign is built on a strategic understanding of the fundraising cycle. Knowing where each donor is in the cycle--and the types of engagement opportunities that work best for each step in the cycle--will help you acquire more donors, steward relationships with your current donors, and raise the money you need to meet mission.

Join Heather to learn the basics of donor engagement at each step in the fundraising cycle.

What we will cover during the live webinar:

  • The five major steps of the fundraising cycle
  • Donor engagement opportunities at each step in the cycle
  • Tips and tricks for board, staff, and volunteers to get involved in donor engagement

Key Benefits of this Webinar:

  • Your development plan is more likely to succeed if it is built upon the concepts of the fundraising cycle.
  • You will be able to better engage donors in meaningful ways by using engagement tactics appropriate to each step in the fundraising cycle.
  • You will have the fuel you need to motive your board and volunteers to help you engage with donors and raise more money!
