5 Things your Nonprofit Needs to Know About...

When you started your nonprofit to achieve your goals, you probably didn't realize that you would also have to become a lawyer, accountant, fundraiser and marketer all at once. We know, it is really tough to manage them all.

This casual, informative meeting will provide you with real, practical tips and guidance. And you’ll get to meet some great people along the way.

5 Things your Nonprofit Needs to Know About:

SOCIAL MEDIA 
With Chanie Kaminker
Navigating the maze: Learn how your organization can harness the power of Facebook and Twitter to build authentic, engaged communities both online and off.

Chanie has been working in the small business marketing and advertising sphere for the past five years, opening up her own shop, Hannabi Creative, in 2010. With a BBA in Marketing from Brooklyn College, experience working at GlobalHue and Comedy Central, the New York-born-and-bred entrepreneur has been making waves in the small business sector with her creative abilities. When not at the office, Chanie can be found giving workshops in and around New York City.

THE LAW
With Jason George
Achieving and maintaining 501(c)(3) status, organizing your nonprofit structure, receiving donations and providing donors with acknowledgement, and issues facing nonprofit board members:

An associate of Washington Law specializing in corporate and real estate law, Jason represents investment funds, small businesses, franchises and nonprofits. Jason was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar in Albania and has become renowned as an easy going, thoughtful authority appreciated by legal professionals and laymen alike. Prior to joining Washington Law, Jason served as Legal Counsel and Vice President for Investments at NCH Capital, a New York based private equity fund, Ashurst LLP in London and McKee Nelson LLP in New York.

ACCOUNTING 
With Soochie Smetana
What every nonprofit should know about their income, expenses, and how to maintain proper books.

An associate at YS Accounting, Soochie offers a full range of remote bookkeeping & accounting services tailored specifically to nonprofit organizations. She understands that accurate financial records will save you time and allow you to easily comply with federal, state, and other regulatory bodies, and helps you make sure your organization is up to par. She specializes in assisting smaller operations with a limited budget for bookkeeping.

ONLINE AUCTIONS AND CROWD FUNDING
With Howard Sachs
Because you can no longer rely only on wealthy donors, it is vital to engage the “99%.” Thankfully, there are tools to do this. Learn how to make Kickstarter, Indigogo and Charity Tick work for your nonprofit.

Sought after thanks to his keen observation, natural leadership and exceptional organizational skills, Howard volunteers as a board member and adviser to many charities and nonprofits. With a background in the medical, insurance and telecommunication arenas, Howard successfully launched numerous products, created businesses and led a number of sales teams before deciding to expand his entrepreneurial services by founding his own Capital Fund.
