Forums Feature Allows Closed Discussion for Members

Thursday, April 23, 2015   (0 Comments)

The Giving Institute is pleased to share that a discussion forum feature has been recently added to the Giving Institute website for use by member firms.

The purpose of this members-only feature is to promote information sharing and networking across its member firms of all sizes and markets. This platform is designed to offer members the opportunity to engage with trusted colleagues and thought leaders on meaningful topics affecting the fundraising consulting and nonprofit services industry in a private, secure, and collaborative environment. 

To access the forum, first login to your member account. Select the “Membership” tab at the top of the page and then select the “Forums” tab. From there, click on the “General Discussion” link in yellow. This is where the various topic threads will be located. To create a new topic, simply click on the “New Topic” icon. You will be prompted to enter a subject and text in the “Editor” box. After a topic has been posted, other members will then have the ability to respond to a topic.
