If you think of LinkedIn solely as a recruiting platform and never considered the value of networking and utilizing the platform to capture corporate sponsors, then your nonprofit is missing out!  

There are many ways nonprofits can utilize LinkedIn. First, LinkedIn provides both marketing and networking opportunities. Second, nonprofits can find corporate sponsors, attract major donors, share knowledge, and even recruit.  However, the first step is to build out your personal profile which is the initial place to start generating awareness for your organization. In fact, if you don’t already have a personal profile created, it’ll be highly beneficial to get started prior to this seminar.

The second step is to get your organization's employees, volunteers, and board members on LinkedIn. As they build their networks, you can unlock relationships that will lead to secure funding for your organization.

Join your presenter, Angela Pitter, a Digital Marketing Strategist who has personally assisted numerous small and medium-size nonprofits with their fundraising campaigns using LinkedIn.
