Media Trust has teamed up with Facebook to give charities the skills, tactics and tools they need to build their online community and leverage the opportunities of Facebook groups.
About the event
The trend towards online connection and community has only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today there are 35 million people in the UK who are part of Facebook groups. Charities and mission-driven enterprises can leverage and build communities to support their work and further their causes.
In this masterclass, the Community Partnerships Team at Facebook will give an overview on how to build community through Facebook groups to drive positive impact, increase awareness and generate revenue.
The session will unpack the power of community and outline the key skills necessary for strong community management, as part of a charity’s wider organisational strategy. In the second part of the masterclass, the Facebook team will give an overview of the new Certified Community Manager Programme, which will be offered pro-bono to all event attendees interested in starting, growing, or sustaining their online communities.
This masterclass will be an opportunity to learn and explore the following topics:
- Understand the power of online community and how it can help nurture impact and promote fundraising
- Understand how to use Facebook groups to define and establish a community and reach your charity’s goals
- Understand the role of the community manager and the learning pathway of the Community Manager Certification Programme
