Are you ready for another social media channel that your organization can engage its supporters through? While it is still early and many organizations and brands are still experimenting with it, Pinterest may be a great way to accent your strong visuals, tell stories and engage with your donors.

Social Velocity in their post “Why I Love Pinterest and Nonprofits Should Too”, give a few reasons for the bullish attitude towards Pinterest including:

  • Nonprofits are naturally image-based.
  • Nonprofits easily connect to passion.
  • Female donors are a large and growing force.
  • Nonprofits are all about good story-telling.
