Nonprofits face many challenges.

Fundraising, sustainability, member engagement just to name a few.

There are many different ways to successfully overcome these same challenges, but for most nonprofit leaders, getting the time away from the day-to-day operations to strategize can be in itself a challenge.

This is where I see Twitter serving a purpose. Small doses of tips here and there can give you just enough firepower to develop and executive better strategies that overcome your challenges.

As with any social network, be careful how many people you follow that aren’t sharing relevant ideas and information. Following too many people post irrelevant information will basically cause Twitter to be more of a time suck than a place where you can extract value that you can actually put to use.

To make the decision for who to follow a bit easier, I’ve started a list below of Twitter handles that you should follow based on categories. I’ve taken a good bit of time to vet the consistency of their posts to assure you can expect to extract value from them.

Without further adieu, here’s the list 🙂
