CauseTalk Radio Ep06: Raise Money, Awareness with 3 Nonprofit Contests

Nonprofit contests are a dime a dozen, it seems. But which ones are the best?

In today's episode, Megan Strand and I highlight three great contests you can join.

First, Ifdy Perez, Community Manager for, joins us to share Twive and Receive, a nation-wide fundraising campaign that pits city against city in a one-day fundraising effort on May 24.

Then we take a look at Toyota's100 Cars for Good campaign (deadline March 26th) and what Toyota does to make this campaign appealing for nonprofits and how it boosts their brand at the same time.

Finally, we bring Sherri Wood, founder of nonprofit One Warm Coat, into the conversation to talk about the Cause Marketing Forum/AOL ImpactShare Your Cause contest (deadline March 30).  As the winner of this contest last year, Sherri talks about why this contest was a good fit for her nonprofit and what other nonprofits should look for.

Join us for all this and more!
