Event description

Description

At nonprofits, telling our stories and raising funds are key to our success - and social media can be a great tool to help with both!

Join us for a fun and informal evening at Wigle Distillery in the Strip District as we learn more about what's changing in the social media landscape and what that means for "friend-raising" and fundraising for our nonprofits. Our speaker is Dave Tinker, VP of Advancement at ACHIEVA. During this interactive session, Dave will engage the audience around questions such as:

  • How do we convert our social media "friends" into donors?
  • Can we safely hand over more content creation to our staff, clients, donors and/or volunteers?
  • Do we really need a snapchat or instagram presence?

5:30-6pm | Networking - Free Appetizers - Cash Bar (12% of proceeds benefit YNPN Pgh)

6-7:30pm | Interactive Presentation - Q&A


This event is open to the public and registration is $10 or FREE for paid Members of YNPN Pgh. Click here to learn more about Membership with YNPN Pgh.
