CART Fund News
Vol. 3, Issue 1 - July 2020
July 1 brought the beginning of our new fiscal year!
We have much to celebrate for 2019-2020, including awarding $1 million in research grants for the second year in a row! We unveiled our new "online donor portal" to simplify electronic giving and reporting, and we had our first-ever "virtual" annual meeting online via Zoom.
More than 300 people attended that online board meeting and training sessions - a new record for us! And many of you have asked for more training and online sessions, so we are pleased to report we are listening!
The first in our series this year will be an "Introduction To Social Media" for anyone who wants some tips/tricks on how to improve your social media reach and impact. I will be hosting this meeting via zoom on Tuesday, July 28, 6-7:30pm EDT. The topic will be "Top 10 Things Your Facebook Page Needs," but there will also be some information shared about other platforms as well. You can join the meeting online by clicking here. Doors will open 10 minutes before we begin. No password is required, but you will be admitted into a waiting room until the host lets you into the meeting.
The second in this series will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 6-7:30pm EDT. This session will be a recap of the information I shared at the May meeting - ideas of how to use public image to raise awareness and funds for CART. The link for that session will be in next month's newsletter and also on our social media accounts.
Please consider joining us if you'd like to learn more about how to more effectively use social media or improve your public image efforts! And watch for announcements coming soon about more online training sessions. If there is something you specifically want us to address, let us know that too. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to send your announcements for this newsletter to this address too so we can share your good news!
