2010 Pre-Conference Workshops
Social Media for Thon Fundraisers
Wednesday, March 3, 9:00 am to 2 pm
Everyone’s talking about social media, but how can you use the most popular tools to raise more money for your organization?
Focusing on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, Charity Dynamics President Donna Wilkins will take you through the process of making these powerful tools amplify your recruitment and fundraising efforts. You’ll leave with a plan to empower your participants to reach new heights in 2010 by reaching out to their social networks.
Special Bonus Introductory Teleconference and Guide: If you are unfamiliar with social media, we’ve developed a one-hour introductory teleconference and guide that will bring you up to speed on key concepts before the workshop. Can’t make the live session? A recorded version will be available 24/7 for your convenience.
Workshop leader Donna Wilkins, president of Charity Dynamics, is a master at teaching people who are not "techies" to understand digital tools and leverage them to improve their organization's fundraising performance.

Wednesday, March 3 from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm
RWRFC President David Hessekiel will lead off with results of an industry survey. Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation National Events Director Staci Brown will describe how CCF has quickly grown Team Challenge into a $6 million program. Then we'll break up into facilitated discussions of critical topics such as recruitment, fundraising, training and event relations for valuable peer-to-peer learning.
