Tips and Tricks

Hello Everybody!
This is Jennifer Mick again reporting back on things that she has learned at the AMA nonprofit Marketing Conference in Washington DC.  One of the most important things I learned on the trip is to thank people when they have helped you, so I want to say a HUGE thank you to the planning committee of the conference for taking me in and making me feel like a part of the family.  It was great being surrounded by so many passionate people and making such amazing connections!  I would like to share some of things I learned while I was there:
  • Get out and GO NETWORK!  
  • Tell your story
  • Establish a strong supporter base by starting with your friends
  • Use all of your resources
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help
  • Use the tools you are provided (SOCIAL MEDIA)
  • The Youth are strong and compelling leaders
If you are interested in learning more about my few tips email me at and I will share with you more about what I have learned and the amazing people who taught it to me.  In the future I hope to set up a nonprofit mixer hosted by with valuable speakers and information on stuff that you want to learn about!  If you have any suggestions email me!

AMA Nonprofit Marketing Conference Report

Hello everybody!  It's Jennifer Mick reporting from Washington DC at the AMA Nonprofit Marketing Conference!  I've had such a great first day here, the speakers have been great and all the people are so kind.  One of my all time favorite things about working with nonprofits are the amazing people who dedicate there time to making it all work.  I've never met kinder or more passionate people in my life!  I've made some really great connections with people all across the country as well as people from Google and Facebook.  I really encourage any teens who are interested in nonprofit work or marketing to reach out to the AMA and ask if they can join next year, everyone has been so supportive of me and my goals even though I am only a teenager.   I'll post some of the things I have learned soon, so stay posted!

The DonorsResource Interns this past year have done a great job reaching out to nonprofits and by the end of the year reached out to the Kentucky Community!  We are now running a in Oregon and Kentucky.  The interns worked hard to revamp our social media, especially Facebook and Twitter and we are almost at our goal for 500 Facebook likes!  Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive!  Now with summer upon us we have a few interns still working hard to keep our engines running.  Follow us on our social media, and we'll keep you updated on what we are up to!

My name is Nathan Siegel and I'm a junior at Riverdale High School. DonorsResource is a great website because it brings non profit organizations and people together. I joined primarily because I like helping my community and making society better. My job is a market analyst, I look at organizations and provide useful information for the company. Also what I plan to do is create public interest surveys so we know what the public wants.

It didn’t occur to me DonorsResource would be a non-profit organization, as opposed to something involving organs, or blood donations.  Not wanting to be stuck in Mr. Wechter’s SAT prep for my Oldoni period; I eagerly switched into the next available class, DonorsResource, without a second thought.  After learning about its mission of connecting non-profit’s with donations, I was eager to jump on board.  Over the summer I had participated in a camp called Exploregon, which provided underprivileged teenagers with the unique opportunity to do things like, cliff diving, and zip lining.  I met many interesting people, and was surprised by how they were in need of such basic things like a backpack, or a raincoat, stuff I take for granted on a daily basis.  The idea of reaching out to them and making a difference, is what made me want to pursue working at DonorsResource, so that they may one day be able to get that raincoat, and backpack.
