5 Free Digital and Social Media Tools to Help Your Nonprofit

February 3, 2022|by Spave

If your nonprofit is like most, then you know all too well the strain of limited time and resources. And in today's social media-driven world, that makes things even tougher.

You're not alone.

But don't worry. There are many different tools you can find online to help you better manage and leverage social media. Here are a few that we think could help your nonprofit.

  • 32auctions:  32auctions is a website that allows you to host silent auctions. Best of all, the platform is free if your auction includes 20 items or fewer. There are priced options that allow for bigger auctions, more insights, no third-party ads, and more. 32auctions is a reputable resource, too; more than 94,000 nonprofits and causes have used the platform. 

  • HubSpot: You're probably already familiar with HubSpot since it's one of the most well-known and popular marketing, sales, and customer relationship manager solutions available. HubSpot offers a free version of its software that can empower you to get a lot done for your nonprofit, including: contact management, email marketing, live chat, forms, and more. HubSpot also offers a priced version that's a special platform for nonprofits. It comes at a 40% discount and includes a lot of useful features, such as onboarding support; resources curated specifically for nonprofit marketing, donor management, SEO, and reporting; social media tools; and more. More than 4,000 organizations use HubSpot's nonprofit solutions. In order to be eligible for HubSpot for Nonprofits, organizations must be a nonprofit or NGO with recognized legal status in their country or region; and an organization located in the U.S. or Canada.

  • Canva: Finding photos and graphical elements for your website and social media can be difficult if you don't have an expensive photo services subscription. Thankfully, though, there's Canva, a platform that empowers you to find images, create custom graphics and memes, and more — for free! There are elements within Canva that are priced, but there are plenty of free options to choose from. 

  • Hashtagify: Getting your nonprofit's message out on social media can be greatly helped with the right hashtags, but how do you know which ones to use? Try Hashtagify, a website that gives you insights on specific hashtags on Twitter and Instagram. The free version comes with a limit to weekly searches and available data, but it's still helpful for your social media planning.

  • Spave: Not to brag, but we're not too shabby of a free resource for nonprofits, either! Spave exists for the same purposes as your nonprofit: To put more good into the world.
