Now Post Volunteer Opportunities to the Community Calendar

Posted By Matthew Mullenix, Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Friday, December 13, 2013


LANO's members posted more than 280 events to the Community Calendar in 2013, nearly doubling last year's number!   

Did you know? All General and Associate members may add events to the Community Calendar and promote them to the entire network free of charge! 

How? Simply submit the relevant information via our members-only webform, and the event will soon appear on the Community Calendar as well as in LANO's numerous social media and email announcements.

What kinds of events are posted? Members and the general public can search and filter Community Calendar events to find local fundraisers, training and networking opportunities, grant announcements, and now (starting in Dec., 2013) opportunities for volunteering in their community

Events are color-coded in the Month View and searchable in every view, past and future, by the following categories:


  Community Events: e.g., fundraisers, art shows, concerts, advocacy rallies; other gatherings attended or hosted by your organization
  Networking Opportunity: Any convening with a purpose or format that promotes meeting and sharing information between individuals for professional advancement or community projects, etc.
  Public Notice: Announcements of a public service nature, not specifically related to an individual organization or special interest group
  Training Opportunity: Nonprofit professional development or topic-specific education, delivered in lecture, seminar, webinar or other format 
  Funding Opportunity: Requests for grant or project proposals (RFPs); donation notice, class actions, tax refund notice or other fund-acquisition opportunity
  Volunteer Opportunity: Events or other activities posted by members for which volunteers are needed and requested.


Who sees this?  All submitted member events are included in our daily social media posts and each week in LANO's Monday morning email, the Weekly Planner.  At the time of this writing, LANO's member network includes more that 12,700 (growing by more than 100 each month), and our social media reach an additional 3,000 followers.

Also included in this all-network newsletter are linked headlines from the previous week's Member News & Events blog as well as job announcements and other updates from LANO's Career and Volunteer Center.  

Don't stay in the dark about nonprofit sector opportunities! For more information on promoting your events and learning about others near you, contact us!
