Calder Strategies’ Thursday late-night launch party was a great success - we looked over the lights of New Orleans and the Mississippi from the 49th floor, shared champagne with friends (and future clients!) and toasted new beginnings, for us and for New Orleans.
During the conference, Katrin and Catherine teamed up with Jed Alpert from Mobile Commons and Hillary Zwerdling from M+R Strategic Services for MAdvocacy: Reach your constituents where they are: On their cellphones! where we discussed successes and challenges of advocacy campaigns using SMS. Katrin ran two other panels during NTEN: one on mobile fundraising, and another on utilizing mobile technology in NGO programming (mobile information services, mobile healthcare, GPS, etc.) We made sure that the attendees at NTEN were able to learn about the application of mobile technology most appropriate to their role and organization. All the sessions were well-attended and had lots of questions and examples from participants. We hope most of the attendees were inspired and intrigued by the possibilities of mobile campaigns to support and expand the missions of nonprofits.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new consultancy, Calder Strategies.
We are excited about the rapidly expanding opportunities for nonprofits, advocacy groups, political campaigns, and social ventures to employ innovative mobile strategies in support of their missions and goals.
Recent developments have opened up mobile fundraising for nonprofits in the United States and provide a unique opportunity for organizations to explore mobile campaigns. We want to support the development and evaluation of new, personal, and immediate ways of communicating with constituents, mobilizing voters, recruiting donors, and motivating civic participation.
Our goal for Calder Strategies is to develop mobile campaigns to support social change; talk to us about how to integrate mobile communications into your overall strategy.
Please contact us and be sure look for us at NTEN as we launch our newest adventure!
Thank you -
Katrin and Catherine
