Hey there, Goodnik;

Here are just a few things going on at Goodnik.org that I thought you should know about;

 

UPCOMING EVENTS

The survey results are in, and the membership has spoken; it seems that many of you are interested in learning about marketing and fundraising as the most important topics to cover, with a special emphasis on "101" level workshops so the next event that we're hosting is a two-part workshop specifically about how to use crowdfunding and social media marketing to raise money for your organization. In this workshop we will work with a small number of "test case" organizations and walkthrough the steps on how to create and market a successful campaign. We will have speakers to explain how to use crowdfunding platforms for social causes, an expert in storytelling, a videographer, and a social media marketing expert.

The projected dates for this event are the 15th and 22nd of May, so save the date. More details to come.

We are also working on several other related workshops, including one on using auction fundraising tools, and a "One Night, One Campaign" marketing workshop. If you have ideas for other workshops, please don't hesitate to let us know by shooting an email to [address removed].

THREE ACTIVE RESIDENT GOODNIK PROGRAMS OPEN

The Goodnik in Residence program provides social entrepreneurs with membership in coworking spaces around New York and right now we've got more openings for Resident Goodniks than ever before:

  • Sunshine Suites is looking for a social entrepreneur working on poverty/youth issues.
  • Projective Space is supporting two goodniks who are using consumer-facing technology to fix social problems.
  • Products of Design at the School of Visual Arts has an opening for a social entrepreneur for the summer who is working on a product that will have a tangible positive impact.
