Things can move very quickly on the Internet. How can nonprofits keep up with the breathtaking pace of change, stay true to our missions, and operate in a space of integrity?

Suhailah Waheed has you covered. Identifying as a “multi-passionate queen” and community-centered fundraiser and organizer based out of Austin, Texas, she is the Managing Director of the agency Giving Geeks, where she creates and enhances strategy operational and development processes and provides support in strategic fundraising opportunities for philanthropic institutions. She’s also a published poet, focusing her work on highlighting issues that affect the quality of life for women, children, minority and Muslim communities.

Here are some of the topics we discussed:

  • How nonprofits can embrace ethical digital fundraising at their orgs
  • How to ensure that the stories you are telling in the digital space are ethical and shared with integrity
  • Whether or not nonprofits should continue to use Facebook, and other social media platforms, in light of recent news and current events (Our answers may surprise you!)
  • What she sees as the future for nonprofit digital – what we need to know

A Suhailah Waheed quotable: “Things are always changing… this is not the end, this is not even the beginning. This is a moment in time, and we have to maintain accountability of our actions and ask better of each other for the next platform that is going to come out, or the next space of fundraising and giving.”
