The GlobalGiving team was thrilled to host our first ever two-day Summit on Social Media and Online Giving in New Delhi at the beginning of July. The event was presented in collaboration with Social Media for Nonprofits, the premiere global event series on social media for social good.
I think Deepa Ranganathan put it well when she said:
@SinfullyAlive: It’s unbelievable and inspiring to be in the company of such changemakers representing orgs doing incredible work doing what they do #SMG14
More than 150 nonprofit professionals and fundraising and communications practitioners came from all over India and South Asia to learn how to collaborate to find ways to tackle their funding needs and further their causes using online tools and social media.
