Fundraisers don’t happen by magic. They are executed by effective planning with digital tools and collaboration between you and your team and in this workshop you will learn to do just that with Google’s Applied Digital Skills platform.
BRING YOUR LAPTOP! Louisville is a Google Fiber city! In this interactive workshop, Phunky Pixel Media Founder, Martin Lindsey, will show you how to use Google’s Applied Digital Skills curriculum to plan your next event. All that’s required is a Gmail email address to get started.
Whether you have an event concept that you’d like to begin brainstorming in detail or a real event that needs to be developed and scheduled for your nonprofit organization, come ready to work on your ideas in class. We’ll hit some of the high points of the Applied Digital Skills, “Plan an Event” course using Google Docs, Sheets and Drawings apps and and send you away ready to jump into a few more when you return to the office.
1. Nonprofits of any size with limited event planning experience on staff.
2. Organizations with no formal database software to track fundraising or “friendraising” activities.
3. Organizations who need an effective way to add event planning to their fundraising strategy.
Learning objectives will include:
● Using Google Docs to do collaborative event research with your team.
● Learning Google Sheets to plan tasks.
