Rally constituents around your cause

Why not use social media for social good? Develop a social profile of your constituents so you can build more meaningful relationships and engage them more fully in your mission. Like the American Red Cross, who tracks thousands of volunteers, donors, and partners to gain deeper insight into their “likes” and influence.


Engage with students and alumni

Students are naturally drawn to social networks. That’s why savvy institutions are using social technologies to connect instructors and staff to student communities, creating more rewarding student and alumni experiences. The Career Development Office at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business uses Chatter to on-board new students, make connections based on career interests, and provide access to job search resources and networks.


Build apps to power your mission

For many nonprofits, the most valuable asset is the staff’s time. And you can save a lot of it when you can quickly spin up powerful apps to manage your unique programs and deliver them in efficient new ways. The Family Service Agency (FSA) of San Francisco’s HIPAA-compliant case management app is helping program managers and clinicians effectively manage 12,000+ clients.

Grow your community of advocates

Effecting social change often requires spreading the word about your cause and inspiring people to get involved. Mobile and social apps are a burgeoning method of sharing and engaging. Invisible Children is raising awareness with its KONY 2012 campaign and its LRA Crisis Tracker app for iPhone and iPad. The goal: arrest Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) leader Joseph Kony, disarm the LRA, and free central Africa’s child soldiers.
