This First Friday session is all about social media and why small charities should be tweeting and posting. Friday Fundraising Clinics are run in partnership with International Fundraising Consultancy. The IFC set up First Friday Fundraising sessions to create a free space for non-profit organisations to gain knowledge and advice on a range of fundraising topics.
This workshop will cover:
- What social media platform suits your charity.
- How to set up social media platforms.
- How often to post and what to post about.
- How to create a content calendar and a social media strategy.
There will be lots of time for questions and discussions including how social media can help increase funding.
Trainer Bio: Christina Cullen
The session will be led by Christina Cullen, IFC’s Social Media Manager and Communications Associate. Christina has been working in and with the charity sector for almost 20 years in communications roles. She learnt her trade at Amnesty International, Prisoners Abroad, and children’s charity Plan International, before embarking on a freelance media career 10 years ago. Christina likes to point out that whilst working with one NGO, she remained totally professional and did not tweet a picture of herself and George Clooney, but if she did, she’s convinced it would have gone viral!
We ask that all attendees arrive 15 minutes before the workshop starts to ensure a timely start and the smooth running of the workshop.
If the places have all been filled please do add your details to the waitlist and we will let you know as soon as a place becomes available.
