In all seriousness, the question is not should our nonprofit have a budget for advertising. In 2022, the more important question is – just how much should we spend, and how do we determine this? Which channels are most effective for nonprofits? These questions are especially important as social platforms like Facebook/Instagram/LinkedIn continue to reduce organic reach across the board.
