Using Social Media

Social media is a great way to reach new donors and increase the visibility of your nonprofit. Using the hashtag #BayAreaGivingDay in your social media messages will help set donor expectations to participate annually in the day of giving. Leading up to May 4, you can remind people to "Save The Date" or becoming ambassadors for your cause. Be sure to post your solicitations frequently, especially on May 4.
