Daniel Jorge Guerra's curator insight, January 7, 2014 8:35 AM
For purist sounds at times cynical the view of "sponsorship as a marketing tool", but isn´t that the purpose of sponsorship ? It doesen't sound cynical viewed in net commercial terms. if it engages and supports it is effective and fulfills a purpose. Personally I am anti war. But am pro the veterans who suffer being sent to conflicts they really did not start. The way BOA combine sponsorship , reputation and even "partiorism" is very intelligent Social Marketing strategy.

A lot of states & cities are experimenting with time-condensed online giving events. Beyond fundraising these online events bring a large base of nonprofit supporters together and generate buzz for the work these nonprofits are doing. These events also encourage nonprofits that may not normally use social networking to tap into social media to reach potential online donors. 

 

Georgia held its inagural Georgia Gives Day Event on December 6th. It helped raise funds and the profiles of the participating nonprofits.
