The huge range of technological tools and programs now available to potential users promise great results – but how do nonprofits with limited time and even more limited budgets decide which are right for their needs? To address this concern, Coastal Community Foundation has launched the South Carolina Tech Academy, a new initiative providing area nonprofits with in-depth technology instruction at an affordable rate. Focusing on targeted, practical training, South Carolina Tech Academy seeks to equip nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers with the skills needed to build organizational effectiveness through technology. Classes will cover areas such as computer security, free online tools and social media, and are limited to 10 students to maximize learning. Participants will be given practical assignments to complete between sessions, which will provide the best opportunity for maximizing learning while directly benefiting their organization. Upcoming offerings include:
Make Google Apps Work for You! - May 21 and 28, 9 a.m. – noon - Get the most from this incredibly powerful suite of tools by learning tips that will help you get stuff done faster and work better with others in your organization to reduce re-work and confusion.
Reach Your Audience Through Email Marketing - June 20 and 27, 2–5 p.m. - Set up a new email marketing program or polish your existing tools to create a professional, targeted and informative email newsletter that is an effective marketing tool for your donor, volunteer and/or customer base.
Classes will be held at Coastal Community Foundation’s offices 635 Rutledge Ave, Suite 201, in Charleston. Free parking is available in CCF’s lot or on the side streets.
