Gift Giving 2.0: Give the Gift that Keeps On Giving

Techsoup (a technology site for non-profits) will be hosting an online forum all day on December 13th called Gift Giving 2.0: Give the Gift that Keeps On Giving, taking place in TechSoup’s Technology for Fundraising forum.

It's a great opportunity for any non-profits who are looking to make a last minute push for seasonal donations. Now that the number of shopping days before Christmas are running out, people are beginning to look for quick and easy ways to give gifts online. The two hosts of the forum, Robert Tolmach of ChangingthePresent.org and Caroline Bernadi of Maatiam, will be on deck to explore how non-profits can benefit from using cause-related shopping sites. They’ll discuss how your gift giving sites can be a fundraising boost not only during the holiday season, but all year long.

The free all-day, asynchronous (not-live) online event will discuss issues such as:
  • What gift giving sites are out there and how do they work?
  • How your nonprofit can make the most of cause-related shopping sites
  • Are the benefits of gift giving sites worth the time investment?
  • Tips and suggestions for using gift giving sites as part of your fundraising strategy

To join in the forum, go to techsoup.org/go/giftgiving. No registration is needed, just show up and post your questions - or browse the questions and answers that are already there.
