Recession Obsession – What Does The Future Hold For Online Fundraising?

I can’t stop thinking about it and no one will let me. Turn on the TV, read the paper, listen to NPR, it’s all gloom and doom. What does that mean for nonprofits? Past behavior is an indicator of future actions, but that’s not likely the case this year. What can you expect in 2009? What should you do? Well, you can start by reading some of the most recent studies by Blackbaud, Donor Digital and M+R Strategic Services with 2008 year-end highlights, and smart tactics to deploy in these hard times.

Why Every Nonprofit Should Embrace the Web 2.0 World

Judith Freeman of the New Organizing Institute and Liza Sabater of Culture Kitchen joined me on a panel recently at the Fem 2.0 Conference to discuss the importance of incorporating Web 2.0 tools as part of an organization’s communications strategy. We had a lively discussion with several senior nonprofit executives about embracing the Web 2.0 world, without mistaking it for "the solution" to your online advocacy and online fundraising needs. The truth is, Web 2.0 is a buzzword. It’s important to recognize that you will not recruit millions of new people to your organization and raise tons of money just because you have a profile on Facebook, or because your staff Twitters.
