LinkedIn for Nonprofits

#GivingTuesday is on Dec 3, 2019 and it’s a chance for nonprofit organizations to bring awareness to their missions on LinkedIn.

If the organization has a company page or LinkedIn group, those would be great places to post a reminder about #GivingTuesday or the organization’s mission or stories of impact.

Members of the Board of Directors, volunteers, donors, potential donors, or friends of the organization can share any of the organization’s post(s) by clicking on the 3 dots at the top right of the post and then clicking on “copy link to post.” People can add their own commentary and hashtags to that URL.

If you need to learn more about how to use LinkedIn for Nonprofits, you could sign up to attend the annual nonprofit conference at on Monday January 27, 2020. Having attended the past two years, I can tell you I got a lot out of it and am returning again.

If you are not busy on Thursday, Dec 5th, you can join our Nonprofit Career Network (NCN) Philly group for breakfast in Lansdale and expand your network of other nonprofit professionals.

If you are a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit, hopefully you reminded folks about your Amazon Smile account for Black Friday and Cyber Monday and if not, make sure you do that next year.

If you need to attend a LinkedIn workshop, you will find the upcoming dates on the meetup under the events tab on our website with the last of 2019 on 12/19 and 12/21.

Don’t miss our upcoming featured events. If you are a working adult, come learn and network with us. You must be a member of the meetup before you can RSVP to any of these events and see the location and other details.
