SMB Bangor #37: Heating up fundraising with social media

Posted on August 27, 2014

With so many causes accepting donations, finding a way to generate awareness – and contributions – can be tricky. How can your event or organization stand out from the crowd, especially with the help of social media?

For our September breakfast we welcomed three local panelists who have helped organize successful fundraisers  for a variety of causes. We had a great conversation about how they approached their campaigns, what they’ve learned, and suggestions they have for others trying to raise money.
