Non-Profit Marketing, Fundraising, and Event Planning Series

Join us for a Non-profit Marketing 3-part series led by Do Some Good Marketing LLC owner, Ashley Barger. Our non-profit leaders are wearing multiple hats and marketing can fall to the back burner. Ashley has served several non-profit organizations in Northwest Ohio over the past twelve years as an event planner, marketer, and fundraising chair and she's prepared to impart her wealth of ideas and tenured knowledge on to you and your team members as much as possible through this series. *Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops or devices to test out platforms and take notes, and so that they may ask real-time questions.

Part 1: Event Planning and Fundraising
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 | 9am-Noon
Where do you start when you're ready to engage your donor database? How do you engage the general public in your organization? What tactics do you use to attract and retain membership, donors, volunteers, and community supporters? We'll go through a roster of tried and true ideas for event planning and fundraising as well as brainstorm ways your specific organization can fundraise or host upcoming events.

Part 2: Social Media Marketing
Wednesday, January 18, 2023 | 9am-Noon
We're going to dive into the social media platforms that make the most sense for your organization's audience and philanthropic or fundraising goals. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and TikTok... Let's get your organization successfully set-up on the applicable platforms and ensure you're reaching and engaging the right audience.

Part 3: Email Marketing + CANVA
Wednesday, January 25, 2023
Getting the word out to the appropriate membership, donors, volunteers, and community supporters is the name of the game! Without a solid list of targeted contacts, it's hard to get an edge in. We'll tie this entire series together in this portion of our series through design in CANVA and outreach with email marketing tactics that will help you and your organization.
