If you are thinking about how to message your nonprofit’s fundraising appeals online and everywhere – then you might want to check out the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s free chat tomorrow on “Crafting Appeals That Work in Print, Online, Everywhere.” You don’t need a Chronicle account to participate, and the chat is on Tuesday, August 14 at 1pm Eastern Time. The guests are:

Geoff Livingston (@geoffliving) – he was among the first people I followed on Twitter and I’ve always found him pushing the envelope on social media and how it is changing how we communicate and relate to each other. Oddly, the Chronicle of Philanthropy promo for the chat doesn’t mention that the is the author of Welcome to the Fifth Estate on social media and co-author (with social media guru Brian Solis) of Now is Gone: A Primer on New Media for Executives and Entrepreneurs. He is a marketing strategist and co-author with Gini Dietrich of Marketing in the Round: How to Develop an Integrated Marketing Campaign in the Digital Era.
Brooke McMillan – she is the online community manager for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, also known as Livestrong. She manages the foundation’s blog, Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube channel and more. She did a guest post for Beth Kanter’s blog in 2009 on how the foundation uses social media that is insightful. So she’s been in the social media trenches a while and has a lot to share that other nonprofits can relate to.

I am looking forward to the chat and I hope you will attend to get new ideas and then brainstorm how to integrate them into your nonprofit’s fundraising plans for social media and everywhere as we approach the end of the year giving season. The Chronicle will post a transcript after the event for those who aren’t able to attend.
