Recorded webinars

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. 

In this event, we heard stories from three world-class nonprofit leaders, Erica Chomsky-Adelson, Founder and Executive Director at Culture AID NOLA, Brian Rosenbaum, Community Engagement Director at Imagine LA and Lucero Oyarzún, Digital Campaign Coordinator at ICAN. The opening keynote from NationBuilder's CEO, Lea Endres, highlighted the power of building community through fundraising.


We’ve just launched our all-new Action Button add-on! With this update, you can now create buttons and easily integrate them with your nation to engage supporters and gather insights in many ways: from quizzes to sentiment polls and contacting legislators. 

This webinar answers the following questions: 

  • What is Action Button?
  • What are the main types of actions?
  • How does the new add-on work?

We are in a new era of nonprofit engagement and it requires a different type of leadership to build the future you want to see. Hear from nonprofit leader and our Chief Strategy Officer, Hilary Doe, as she unpacks the tactics and strategies that are needed to engage your community and drive them to take more action. 

This webinar covers:

  • Ways to make make doing good fun
  • Equipping your top supporters to scale impact
  • Meeting your community in moments they’re inspired to act
  • And more!

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 organisation––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! 

For those in the nonprofit world, end-of-year fundraising has a way of sneaking up on you year after year, leaving you scrambling to pack a month of strategic planning into a matter of days or weeks. But we want this year to be different. We want to give you a strong foundation to kick off this giving season early so you can finish out 2021 with a bang.

In this webinar, Ashleigh Bergh, Enterprise Account Manager, and Sorcha Rochford, Director of Strategic Partnerships, cover:

  • Getting to know your supporters & deepening those relationships
  • Identifying your top advocates & equipping them to take action
  • Using historical benchmarks to craft your fundraising strategy
  • Creating personalized 1:1-style email campaigns at scale

In this webinar, we cover the NationBuilder tools that make it possible to send personalised emails that resonate with each of your supporters. From personalised subject lines (which are 26% more likely to be opened) and smart fields to using liquid to dynamically display whole blocks of content and calls to action depending on each supporter’s profile information  (such as their geography, donation history, activity history or otherwise)––and how to bring those elements together to create a more powerful user engagement journey.
