Millions of people use social media, such as Facebook and Twitter every day. Wouldn’t it be great to utilise these networks in your fundraising?

NEW redesigned session for 2018, part of our new ‘Is it for me?’ series, which are introductory sessions aimed at helping groups diversify their income streams.

This introductory training session explores how social media can be used in your fundraising and to engage with potential donors.

We are delighted to have guest tutor Lou Mycroft, a social media ninja and digital pioneer @loumycroft, facilitating this session and sharing her top tips.

Lou uses FAB (Folded Arms Brigade) principles to support the development of digital meta-skills, enabling digital resilience and a growth in digital confidence. 

This session will help you:

• Develop digital confidence and resilience
• Support you to get started with online platforms suitable for your organistion
• Consider what social media tools and support apps may work for you
• Time to explore and experiment

This session is aimed at those new to the concept of using social media in their fundraising.
