Three Smart Ways to Market Your Nonprofit Through Technology

by Murad Bushnaq

As dependence on technology grows, it's becoming increasingly important that nonprofits rethink their digital marketing strategies to reach donors across all devices. The best place to start doing this is on your website. Your website can mean the difference between converting visitors into donors and visitors losing interest before they even give your organization a chance. To simplify the web design process, it's a good idea to invest in a content management system (CMS). One that's easy to manage and allows for extensive customization will provide consistent value for your team and serve as a solid foundation for your marketing efforts.

LIVE Workshop: Tracking Volunteers in QuickBooks

DESKTOP Version: Wednesday, July 22, 2020
ONLINE Version: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Are you tracking your volunteers' contact information somewhere? What about the hours they worked? What they did? Many grantors will allow volunteer hours to count towards meeting the matching requirements for a grant, so it is important to keep track of volunteer activity. All of this information can be easily tracked right in your QuickBooks software. To help you with this process, we are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, a CPA specializing in nonprofits and president of QuickBooks Made Easy for Nonprofits, deliver one of his most popular webinars exclusively for us. In this webinar, you will learn how to set up your volunteers in QuickBooks either manually or by import, query to find a volunteer that possesses a skill that you may need, set up and enter time for volunteers by activity, generate volunteer reports, and get QuickBooks to calculate the exact amount of match created. Don't miss this opportunity! You will be VERY glad you came!
