One such collaboration discussed was a housing initiative in San Francisco known as the Services Connection Program.

Check out this example from Denver Rescue Mission. Storytelling and social media – these terms have certainly been thrown around a lot this year! Are they just empty buzzwords, or actual tools that can help your nonprofit raise money online? I firmly believe in the latter.
