Want to do something green but not sure where to start? Need to build online support for your nonprofit but lack a social media strategy? Thinking about starting a non-profit or switching to the non-profit world? Or maybe you’re curious about what crowdfunding is – and how it really works.

Join us for a special webinar in honor of Earth Day, as we welcome Erin Barnes (Col ’02) of ioby (“in our backyards”), an urban environmental action organization that connects people with local, community-driven projects. Erin will share how one simple piece of advice helped create a growing organization that contributes to meaningful environmental change, and will take a look inside ioby’s social media and crowdfunding strategies. She’ll also discuss her path from environmental student, activist and professional to co-founder of ioby, an innovative, web-based non-profit active in the burgeoning areas of citizen philanthropy, digital civic engagement and urban environmental action.
