Nonprofit organizations use online communications strategies to engage audiences, increase visibility, shift attitudes, raise money, and create social change. This course examines how organizations use social media, websites, email, and mobile technology to build relationships with its community. We will also look at the internal resources organizations need to succeed, such as staffing, social media guidelines, training, and internal communications tools. Through case studies and examples from local, national, and international organizations, students gain a broad understanding of online communications, fundraising, advocacy, and social networking in the nonprofit sector. Each student conducts an in-depth analysis of a nonprofit organization’s use of online engagement to support its mission.
