The Digital Nonprofit 2015

May 22: The Digital Nonprofit Conference

It’s 2015 already – and you’re online! But is anything coming from your investment in going digital?

Join us for the second annual The Digital Nonprofit to hear from leaders and experts on:

  • How to structure our organizations to make them more effective online
  • How to embed the power of the internet into our daily operations
  • How to use data to make better decisions and be more effective in executing our missions

We’ll mix big-picture thinking with practical, hands-on sessions during an inspiring day at the beautiful Creekside Community Centre. We’ve got an amazing menu booked with meals from the Vij’s and TacoFino food trucks and a complimentary espresso cart onsite.

When: Friday, May 22. 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Price: $75.00 early bird before April 1

Who should attend?

  • Nonprofit leaders responsible for their organization’s strategy
  • Digital staff and fundraisers who execute online campaigns
  • Program and support staff who want to more effectively engage their stakeholders

Here’s the initial lineup of experts.

Alexandra Samuel, VP Social Media, Vision Critical

“Telling Stories with Data”

The advent of big data has challenged organizations to gather and analyze tremendous volumes of data on the people and communities they serve, as well as on the members and donors that support that work. But whether we’re dealing with big data or “little data” — smaller, more manageable datasets that can nonetheless provide deep insight — we need to develop the capacity to not only understand and learn from it, but to tell effective stories with it. Alex will help you work more effectively with data in your organization by mapping out the steps to developing an effective data strategy.

Peter Wrinch, Lead Organizer, NationBuilder and former Executive Director, Pivot Legal Society

“Building the Culture to Win: A Deep Look at Non-profit Culture, Structure & Tech”

When Peter Wrinch took over the leadership at Pivot in 2010 the organization was struggling. Despite an incredible vision, a strong community of support, and a great team, the bank accounts were empty, people worked in silos, and the organization was suffering from mission drift. At his first staff retreat as Executive Director, he asked the staff to work with a new style of leadership – one that put each of them at the centre of their own respective areas of expertise. As Executive Director he would supply the tools for their success, but the responsibility for growth, movement, and ultimately Pivot-style social change rested with them. And it worked!

Benjamin Johnson, Executive Director, Frontier Marketing Company

“What separates charity websites that work and those that don’t?”

Ben Johnson will share his insights from a massive research project of NGO websites and guide you through the critical changes you can make to communicate more clearly, serve your members and raise more money.


A huge thanks to our sponsors, without whom The Digital Nonprofit would be impossible.
