Register Today for a FREE Webinar with Beth Kanter!



“Enough about you. Let’s talk about ME!”


Is this how you interact with your supporters? Telling them about the intricacies of your organizational work and priorities —instead of listening and responding to the ideas bubbling up from their communities?


In The Networked Nonprofit: Connecting With Social Media To Drive Change, co-authors Beth Kanter and Allison Fine, show how social media is catalyzing a shift away from this type of “organization-centric” advocacy, governance and communications toward a “network-centric” approach.

In a recent interview with the authors in Huffington Post, Kanter and Fine also talk about how the future success of nonprofits will rely on their ability to build movements instead of organizations.
