In order to help nonprofits in our community put their best foot forward, the FM Area Foundation conducts periodic trainings to help nonprofit staff grow in their professional development.

  • Intro to Twitter for Nonprofit Professionals

    Organization:Next Action Digital Date: May. 2, 2018 Time: 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM Location:FM Area Foundation, Community Room, 409 7th St. S, Fargo, ND 58103

    Designed for Nonprofit Professionals who are new to Twitter or don’t use it much (yet!)

    In the Intro to Twitter workshop, we’ll help you imagine the many ways you can use Twitter as a nonprofit professional – from connecting with donors to lifting up volunteers.

    The class includes Twitter orientation so that you’re comfortable with Twitter. Our goal? You should be able to go from idea to tweet in a minute or two. After all, if it takes any longer than that, you’re likely to give up on the post.

    By the end of the class, you’ll have Twitter terminology down and will have sent a few tweets.
