    Idealware Webinar Series

    It's getting harder to take a casual approach to social media. Without a strategy, your posts get buried and your message gets lost. How can you stand out and take a more strategic approach to social media? Join Idealware for The Nonprofit Social Media Toolkit, a six-part training series designed to help you gain real value from your social media efforts. You'll learn how to use social media to build your brand, deepen engagement, integrate your communications, drive donations, and measure your impact. Idealware will also show you how to develop a social media policy that protects your nonprofit from off-brand and off-color posts. 

    6-Part Webinar Series: from April 3rd to May 8th from 11:00 AM to – 12:30pm (Mountain Time). All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation decks and handouts.

    Wyoming Nonprofit Member cost: $215 (see weekly member bulletin for discount code or contact jshields@TheAlignTeam.org)

    Not-Yet-Member cost: $255

    Keeping the Strategic Planning Process Simple

    Most of us don’t need to be convinced of the importance of planning. Research and anecdotal examples abound with organizations that have thrived or failed due to adequate or inadequate planning. The challenge for most of us is keeping the process simple and in alignment with our purpose. Being purpose driven helps non-profit and not-for-profit organizations not only differentiate themselves, but it also creates focus as to how and what is included in a strategic plan. In this session we will focus on the Why, How, and What of strategic planning. 

    Speaker - Elissa Ruckle, Elevate Wyoming

    Topic: Running an Effective Meeting

    What is the purpose of meetings? Ideally, everyone knows what they need in order to do their job. In reality, we need to share information and utilize various levels of expertise to accomplish our goals. This session teaches how to set the stage, run the meeting, and conclude the meeting to maximize effectiveness. Join us to learn how to prepare for and facilitate meetings, whether the meeting intent is planning, informational, wrap-up, or discussion based. We will also discuss how to effectively conclude a meeting while fostering positive relationships with those in attendance.

    Topic: 

    Now We’re Speaking the Same Language: The Basics of Charitable Giving Strategies for High Net Worth Donors.

    This presentation covers financial strategies used by high net worth donors to maximize giving and minimize taxes. In this presentation we cover the basics of donor advised funds, charitable trusts, family foundations, gifts of appreciated assets, and estate planning considerations. Many of the strategies discussed can be used with most donors but can provide even greater benefits for large and/or recurring gifting strategies.
