Vancouver Brain Injury Association (Vancouver BIA) needs immediate assistance with online fundraising. Experience with MailChimp auto-responders and forms and with Google AdWords is required. WordPress experience will be beneficial.
Vancouver Brain Injury Association has been an all volunteer nonprofit organization. Unfortunately, our online marketing and fundraising volunteers are no longer with us. The ability to enhance our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram pages will be helpful.
The most immediate need is for MailChimp forms for our website and social media platforms. Vancouver BIA needs basic email campaigns utilizing auto-responders to build membership, for fundraising, and most importantly to reach the people that need our help.
This project is to build an effective basic online communication system in time to take advantage of the Christmas giving season.
