Online social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn offer your nonprofit exciting new ways to reach out to and engage your membership, your supporters, your donors and potential donors. However, incorporating social media into your nonprofit’s marketing and fundraising without any precautions can result in unintended legal risks and liabilities. In addition, giving the public, your employers, and volunteers unlimited and unsupervised access to your social media can also negatively and possibly legally impact your nonprofit.

Please join John Bradley, attorney-at-law, as he explains some of the potential risks and liabilities associated with the use of social media and discusses methods, such as the adoption of a social media policy that will both contribute to your nonprofit’s mission and reduce your legal exposures.
