Nonprofit organizations support communities from every corner of the world, meeting vital everyday needs. During the past few incredibly challenging years, their leadership has never been more important. Watch the recording as we say thank you to celebrate nonprofit teams, volunteers, and donors in Australia and New Zealand. 

In this event, we heard stories from powerful nonprofit leaders that have built volunteer bases, raised 100s of thousands of dollars, developed lasting relationships with their communities, and ultimately created the change they wanted to see in the world. We got to learn how these organisations used digital infrastructure to support the vital work they do every day and they shared tangible tactics that you can implement with your organisation.

  • Afiqah Rozali, Digital Fundraising Officer - Refugee Council of Australia

  • Ella Nugraha, Enterprise Account Manager - NationBuilder

Our partner Defending Digital Campaigns (DDC) is a nonprofit C4, nonpartisan and non-aligned organization providing access to cybersecurity products, services and information regardless of party affiliation.  

Their mission is to secure our democratic campaign process by providing eligible campaigns and political parties, committees, and related organizations with knowledge, training, and resources to defend themselves from cyber threats.

In this session, we heard from Michael Kaiser, President & CEO of DDC, on the basics of cybersecurity and how to address your primary risks as a political campaign heading into the 2022 midterms. We reviewed how to:

  • Protect accounts with a security key and strong authentication making it difficult for unauthorized people to access accounts
  • Use a password manager for creating and storing strong passwords
  • Protect your website from being defaced or brought down
  • Use encrypted communications to keep sensitive information away from prying eyes
  • Secure shared accounts accessed by multiple users
  • Prepare for a cyber incident be ready to act and maintain continuity of operations
  • Create a culture of cybersecurity through training and policy

In order to have a successful end-of-year fundraising campaign, it's so important to stand out from the crowd, get your emails opened and even more importantly, that your fundraising asks are heard, relevant and acted on. Following the positive reaction to  our  webinar on email personalization using liquid, this webinar dives into how you can use liquid to further personalize your fundraising emails.

We cover:

  • Sending recommended donation amounts that are linked to a supporters donation history
  • Giving supporters a detailed history of their donation records to date
  • How you can have your fundraising ask amounts carry through to the donation page 
  • And much more

You'll come away with tips and tactics that will help you build a smoother and more relevant journey for your supporters and raise more funds for your organization––all just in time for #GivingTuesday and your end-of-year fundraising push.

We’ve launched express payment options! This will allow donors to contribute using Apple Pay, Google Pay, or a credit card they've saved to their browser. This will minimize the time it takes for donors to contribute, make it easier for people to donate from their mobile devices, and provide an added sense of security by allowing donors to avoid manual credit card input. We're hoping this will increase donation conversion rates and give your organization the means to better promote your cause ahead of giving season.

In this webinar, we cover:

  • Setting up express payment options on your site & pages
  • How to implement theme changes to your custom donation pages
  • Plus lots of Q&A time!

On average, people receive more than 100 emails a day and only open 18% of them. Conversely, the open rate for text messages hovers around 99%––what’s more, most people open a text message within 15 minutes of receiving it!

The bottom line: texting should definitely be part of your supporter outreach. 

Not currently using text messaging? No biggie––now is the perfect time to get started. In this webinar, Annette Hauswirth and Kylie Malloy, both NationBuilder Enterprise Account Managers, provide a comprehensive overview of our texting features and step-by-step guidance on how to craft and send a text blast. 

We’ll also cover:

  • How to strategically use text messaging to engage supporters
  • Setting up keywords and managing replies
  • Deliverability best practices 
  • Pitfalls to avoid
  • Frequently asked questions, and more!
