I “Like” Nonprofits

16,809 Facebook users like the group on Facebook titled “Nonprofit Organizations.”

This group has an audience of 16,809 members wanting information on any nonprofit in the world. This audience desires to help, fund, and support nonprofits. Jackpot.

In addition to announcing a multitude of nonprofits, increasing awareness, and raising funding, this group also looks to assist nonprofits in becoming more efficient themselves. Like the old Chinese proverb says, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

This Facebook group helps the nonprofits through announcing information sessions such as, “Just a FYI :: I have two webinars coming up next week for nonprofits covering mobile websites, group text messaging, text-to-give, mobile social networking and location-based communities like Foursquare, Gowalla, and Facebook Places.:)”

Also, they are helping nonprofits excel in the same medium in which they have themselves, Facebook!

“90% of the power of Facebook Page is in the Status Updates [showing up in the News Feeds]. These five nonprofits are excellent examples of nonprofits who understand and embrace that, and have worked hard to find and perfect their Facebook voice.


This Facebook Group also has nonprofits of the month! This month’s nonprofit is the global fund for women.
