Social Media Fundraising Assessments and Counsel

The internet and social media have come to play integral roles in many aspects of our business and personal lives. So it is no surprise that institutions and organizations can experience great success by effectively utilizing these outlets to get ahead in the world of philanthropic giving. Social media is an ever-changing phenomenon that must be utilized in a way that is strategic and appropriate for each individual organization.

To that end, Marts & Lundy services include strategic assessments of your organization’s online presence and social media fundraising strategy – including core websites and social media accounts – to identify opportunities to improve constituent engagement and giving. Our assessment will review primary websites, profiles and pages on major social networks (Facebook, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube, etc.) as well as your organization’s online giving experience. The assessment will delve into the quantity and quality of postings, tweets, and discussions; the communication balance (push vs. receive with audiences); content quality and feedback; and advanced considerations: new networks, campaigns, social gift acknowledgements, etc.

Marts & Lundy’s assessments and counsel include:

  • Opportunities for the integration of social media fundraising campaigns and communications
  • An assessment of  performance on the core website pages every nonprofit should have
  • Tips for avoiding and/or fixing common social media mistakes made by nonprofits
