We have a few important Causes announcements to cover in this week’s “Must reads for nonprofits” post.
Our team is excited to announce a new robust and easy integration of Causes and Fundraising Projects with Facebook Fan Pages.

Here are some easy step by step instructions to link your organization’s Facebook page and Causes fundraising.
Lady Gaga launched a tremendous project last week, crowd sourcing her fans opinion to help her select how to distribute a $1,000,000 donation to five nonprofit organizations working with youth in New York City. Check out our Director of Community, Jen Burton’s, blog post and the five nonprofits in the competition.
There has been much ado about the new book by David Neff and Randal C Moss and for good reason. Their book focuses on the importance of internal innovation in the nonprofit world and how NPOs can build organizational structures that help make it possible. The Future of Nonprofits will undoubtably drive discussion around nonprofits for a while so don’t miss out!
Causes’ nonprofit partners that are our rockstars are first and foremost amazing storytellers, whether it’s stories, images, or videos they know how to convey the impact of their work. But telling your story is half the battle, you also need to figure out where to post it and YouTube now has some great incentives for nonprofits to pick them.
