Introducing FirstGiving’s first Tweetchat: #FGchat “3 cheers for the lean nonprofit!”

  
  
  
 



We’re happy to announce FirstGiving’s first ever Tweetchat, “3 cheers for the lean nonprofit!” For this chat, we’ll be bringing in Layne Gray from Vivanista as our #FGchat speaker and we’ll be moderating the discussion - you know, poking the flames, playing devil’s advocate, and giving internet kudos when appropriate.



Here are the details.



Date & Time: Thursday, June 14th, 2012 at 12 noon EST



Description: “3 cheers for the lean nonprofit!” - How your nonprofit can use its size to its advantage.



What’s a “lean nonprofit?” - A lean nonprofit is an organization that’s small, nimble, and incredibly effective. They target niche social issues and adopt new technology in order to cut costs and to stay as efficient as possible. They can easily pivot and bureaucracy is kept at a minimum.



#FGchat questions



  1. What tools can a small nonprofit use in order to maximize efficiency yet stay within budget?


  2. What are some easy-to-do, actionable strategies nonprofits can begin implementing tomorrow that could help their cause?


  3. What are the advantages of being a “lean nonprofit?”


  4. Can a lean nonprofit compete for attention and influence against the nonprofit giants in this day and age?


  5. In what ways can a nonprofit’s supporter base help contribute in more than just donations?


  6. Are there any lean nonprofits we can look to as good examples?




 



Chat takeaways:



After this #FGchat you’ll walk away with:



  • Tools, tricks, and tips your nonprofit can use in order to make the most of what you’ve got.


  • Strategies your nonprofit can implement tomorrow in order to boost organizational efficiency.


  • Reasons to embrace your nonprofit’s nimble and lean nature.


  • Highlights and examples of lean nonprofits to emulate.




 



Discussion superlatives:



After the chat we’ll be tweeting superlatives! Some of them will include:



  • Most Engaged


  • Best Answer


  • Best Question


  • Most Retweets




 



We’ll also be following up with a report and chat transcript.



Getting your feet wet



If you’re worried about participating in your first chat, don’t be. To quote #Fundchat , “The best advice is: jump right in! Many people “lurk” (we’d rather you not) before participating in the conversation…this is a good way to get acclimated. But participants are very warm and welcoming, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and insights from the get-go.” For a more indepth lesson on Tweetchats check this out.



Tweet you soon!



 



We created a Twebevent for the chat! Think of it as a way to filter out all of the rest of your Twitter activity while you chat.
