Nonprofit Net Mission Statement

Our mission is to unite nonprofits within a community to attract local philanthropic resources and to increase their capacity to deliver services.

We work with nonprofit organizations to facilitate access to local resources that would not otherwise be available. Whether the objective is fundraising, finding new board members, recruiting volunteers or improving operations, we help our member organizations reach their goals more easily and more quickly. We also help our members to improve the capacity of their boards and improve their own internal management and operational practices by providing access to managerial and executive talent at regular peer group meetings.

Do You Have a Strong Board?


What are Board members’ obligations individually, collectively, ethically, and legally? Does it matter if it’s a working/management group or more governance-oriented? What kinds of support, not just financial, does your Board provide? What is your Board orientation like…are new members told what is expected of them? How well does it assess its own performance? Does your Board have a positive relationship with your CEO…why or why not? Does an organization’s size or sector matter? You’ll learn about these topics and much, much more in this seminar. Please bring your own questions and share your experiences.

Seminar Description:

 

Multichannel Strategies for Nonprofits: How To Use Online Tools to Raise Money, Awareness and Support for Your Organization

Social and Web 2.0 technologies have changed not just how we market and promote our programs and services, but also how we manage and lead our organizations, and how we build communities and create movements. Understanding the multichannel landscape is more important than ever before, as the pace of change is growing exponentially. Email communications, social media, and mobile are important, but how will they help your nonprofit and the issues you work on every day? Most importantly, how the heck do you integrate and utilize these tools successfully without losing your mind? This seminar will help you answer these questions, and will guide you through the planning and implementation of online multichannel strategies that will spark advocacy, raise money and promote deeper community engagement in order to achieve social change in real time.

The seminar will be led by Julia Campbell, President/CEO of J Campbell Social Marketing, a boutique digital marketing agency based in Beverly, MA. Julia received her degree in Journalism & Communications from Boston University and earned a Master in Public Administration from Old Dominion University as well as a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Tidewater Community College.
