If you’ve struggled before it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief. We’ve compiled a great list of places to look for your next webinar needs and reasons why you’ll love the convenience. So sign up, log on and get ready to learn more with access to great information at your fingertips. There’s no need to go on a scavenger hunt when you’re in a bind for information. Simply scan, click and submit.

Why You’ll Love Them

It’s like having an expert come to your office to give you advice on how to run your nonprofit…only better. You can stay in the comfort of your own office and chair, wear whatever you want and stay for however much time you’ve got to spare. If you have a call to take or an urgent email to send, there’s no need to fret over missing a beat. Many webinars are pre-recorded or made available after the event so you can simply hit the pause button and come back to learn more later.

If you can think it, a webinar can probably help you do it. Whether you’re looking to connect with volunteers and donors or brush up on an unfamiliar topic, there’s a webinar for that. Regardless of what you’re looking for, webinars are a great place to bounce ideas around with more people.

Eliminating the Search with Aggregators

You’ve been told that the best things in life don’t come free. But with webinars, that’s hardly the case. There are tons of people out there who want your mission to succeed just as badly as you do. Plus, there are great sites that keep track of nonprofit webinars so you don’t have to do the work. And, most sites sort the webinars by date so you can pick a time that’s convenient. And if you want to narrow your search, look for sites that offer webinars on specific topics, like fundraising webinars.

Tried and True Resources

If you don’t want to sift through the nonprofit aggregators, we wouldn’t blame you. There are also resources that hit the mark every time with their expertise and relatability. Here are a list of established resources to utilize when searching for your next nonprofit webinar.

  • Convio
    Not only are these webinars free, but they are offered on demand, which means you can watch them anytime and keep watching them. Plus, you’ll find resources separated between small to mid-size nonprofits and large nonprofits.
  • NTEN
    The Nonprofit Technology Network offers a wide array of webinar topics, all free to low cost. You can find great topics about social media, managing online data and much more.
