Welcoming a Philanthropic Star – Heather Mansfield
Heather Mansfield is the owner of DIOSA Communications, principal blogger at Nonprofit Tech 2.0, and author of Social Media for Social Good: A How-To Guide for Nonprofits. She also created and maintains the “Nonprofit Organizations” profiles on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, Flickr, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and Myspace which cumulatively have more than 600,000 friends, followers, and fans.
A pioneer in utilizing social media for the nonprofit sector, Heather has fifteen years of experience utilizing the Internet for fundraising, community building, and advocacy. To date, she’s presented more than 100 social media and mobile technology trainings throughout the United States, Canada, and Asia as well as over 500 webinars to audiences worldwide.
I have been in touch with Heather a number of times since first coming across her blog, website, book and newsletters. She has been a big help to us as we push forward with Philanthropegie’s social media outreach.
As you can imagine, Heather stays quite busy with all of these endeavors. Rather than add one more thing to her long list of to-do’s we decided that Philanthropegie could benefit by pulling in some of the great material she shares through her own website.
So, keep an eye out for great new content on the Philanthropegie Blog. And if you haven’t already, I strongly suggest that you check out her book – Social Media for Social Good: A How-To Guide for Nonprofits. There is a ton of great information and excellent recommendations.
Welcome aboard, Heather. And thank you for all that you do.
