Matterness is a way to make people feel known, acknowledged and invited to participate in all your organizational efforts. Passive audiences become active, and passionate supporters then become your best ambassadors. Supporters enthusiastically contribute their knowledge, networks and funds to support your cause. This presentation, given at a Valley Gives 1.5 hr in-person workshop, covers the principles of Matterness to make your people feel acknowledged, empowered and activated using social media, along with examples and a deep case study. Slide deck includes discussion prompts for nonprofits around fundraising and organizational behavior.
