Nonprofits have great stories to tell about their impact. But they’re not always great at telling them.
That’s why, for four weeks in this past spring, Generocity hosted Tech in the Commons, a reporting and event series on digital engagement strategies for place-based nonprofits supported by the Knight Foundation.
With the help of nonprofit experts such as Visit Philly’s Kristina Jenkins, Arden Theatre Company’s Stephen Rapp and Media in Neighborhood Group’s Jon Kaufman, we covered four trending topics for more than 175 Philly-area nonprofits.
Now, those lessons live in one place: our Tech in the Commons ebook, where you can find tips on using social media, live video, data storytelling and augmented and virtual reality.
Its whopping 5,000 words aim to help your organization spruce up its engagement strategy for the sake of attracting new audiences, both online and in the real world. Each section features how-tos as well as stories about impact leaders who have used them and succeeded.
If you’ve used any of this new tech to give your social strategy a bump, we want to hear about it. Tell us @generocity or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you in the commons.-30-
