Birgit Pauli-Haack & Jim O’Reilley discuss latest in NPTech News, Online donors – generational differences and Q & A on CMS & Online Meeting Tools.
The news discussion begins with an article published in The NonProfit Times about how different generations prefer their communications with charities, for example, email as opposed to social media, they then discuss the number of organizations accepting donations online, and finally the mode through which most donations arrive. The numbers used in the article were from the 2016 Global NGO Online Technology. They then discuss upcoming webinars and recently published work about nonprofit communications trends. Birgit describes the upcoming Nonprofit Technology Conference, and in particular the Birds of a Feather Lunches.
