The intersection of social media and grantwriting fills my thoughts regularly except today when they were interrupted by news of the passing of Beastie Boys Co-Founder Adam Yauch. The outpouring of mourning was remarkable. There were literally thousands of tweets an hour to honor the memory and accomplishments of MCA. You can check out my Twitter feed @adeptdiva to see how I paid tribute. As grantwriters, we face the challenge in being potentially overwhelmed by the volume of tweets, status updates, pictures, etc. that flow through social media. I can be your guide to navigating the seemingly endless stream of information for that special tweet or update that can tell you just what you need to know to make the right ask, at the right time, for the right project, and for the right amount from the right funder!
To be a good guide, I need to know where you want to go. Give me your input on how you use social media in your grantseeking work! I'm putting finishing touches on my presentation for WVDO's Regional Conference. You can hear me speak on Thursday, May 17 from 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. on grantwriting and social media. You can find out more about the conference on Twitter at @WVDO_OR #wvdoconf12 or visit http://www.myfundraisingconference.org/ .
