November 16, 2015 in San Francisco


Join us as we bring together nonprofit decision-makers and supporters in the San Francisco bay area to share practical tips and tools for fundraising, marketing, and advocacy. Speakers will address a variety of topics in a series of short, TED-meets-Twitter style talks and interactive workshops. We’ll be adding a couple hands on workshops and breakouts this year to allow participants to get their hands on experience with measurement and designing compelling email newsletters.



If you are interested in joining us as a keynote, speaker, or panelist please apply online here. Our Leadership Council reviews speaker submissions on a rolling basis. All workshops must be practical and actionable, not conceptual and theoretical, and sessions are 30 minutes long, including Q&A.

Without volunteers, these events could not run as well as we do, and we are very grateful for all our volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering, please complete the following application. We are looking for volunteers for outreach help leading up to the event and also for onsite support.

An investment in Social Media for Nonprofits can allow your organization to connect to our incredible network of nonprofit social media and MarCom practitioners, CEOs, board members, directors, and consultants. #SM4NP participants are the precise decision-makers that sponsors and exhibitors need to reach. Their work ranges from fighting hunger to ending child slavery, but they’re united by a fierce desire to master the resources, tools, and knowledge they need to better serve their community.
