Digital for Dummies is training that aims to take the mystery out of digital fundraising – with sessions on fundraising through your website and Facebook page.
From setting goals and measurements of success to developing content that resonates with donors and prospective donors, it’s a workshop that cuts through the jargon with logical, easy to understand tips and techniques. The session includes a practical look at the websites and Facebook pages of two organizations (registered delegates), presenting critique and input on possible improvements.
Facilitator: - Sheila McCallum has 30 years’ experience in fundraising, including 10 years hands-on experience in building websites. She developed her passion for fundraising under the mentorship of fundraising 'guru' Terry Murray at Downes Murray International. After more than 20 years as an advertising copywriter, creative director and web designer, she took the decision to branch out on her own, now offering specialized website development and online strategies to enable non-profit organizations to leverage fundraising opportunities on the Internet.
