Aspiration Travels the Central Valley of California

I want to take the time to honor the many folks who met with us in Fresno, Visalia, Modesto, and Sacramento the last couple of months as part of the Central Valley eAdvocacy Capacity Building Program. We hope we can continue to provide you with useful information to support your online communications and tech decisions.

Central Valley Office Hours

As we move forward with trainings in the Central Valley, I want to continue to keep open communication with organizations we met with in the Valley. There are many follow-up questions and comments that come out of the trainings for organizations that are actively trying to build their online communications.

In trying to find the best way to support individual organizations and provide the greater community with answers, we are thinking about trying some new ways to keep people involved in a virtual space.

Facebook Page vs. Group for Nonprofits

Hi All,

During our previous meet ups in Fresno, Modesto, and Visalia, several people had questions about how to best set up and use Facebook for their organization.

Currently, many orgs have individual Facebook profiles set up instead of using Facebook groups or pages.

To help you figure out what's right for you, here is a blog that explains why you shouldn't have an individual Facebook profile for your org and sorts the differences of a Facebook group vs. page.

Modesto, Fresno, and Visalia Shout Outs!

FresnoI am excited to say we had an adventurous week in Modesto, Fresno, and Visalia on a 3 day road trip. We had great food, talked to awesome people, and even finished our first Central Valley eAdvocacy Training in Fresno! There were 13 different organizations from Fresno and Visalia represented at the training. We had great local support from CMC and <a href=http://www.bgclubfc.org">BGClubFC.

It's not about the grapes or lettuce.

The fight is never about grapes or lettuce. It is always about people. Cesar Chavez

In honor of Cesar Chavez Day, I wanted to reflect on using technology for social change, especially since our 1st Central Valley training is coming up on April 6 in Fresno, "Starting your Nonprofit on Social Media."
