Moderator Marisa Peacock (ePhilanthropy Professional) leads a panel on ePhilanthropy: The New Frontier for Raising Money. Panelists include: Benjamin Stein (Mobile Commons) and Line Storgaard-Conley (Safe Kids Worldwide).
The Future of Jewish Nonprofit Summit pulls together the best speakers, ideas and companies together for one day in order to inspire movement, facilitate change and spark creativity.
This one day summit is a polar opposite to your typical overcrowded, loud and ineffective conference. We keep it to a closed circle of in-the-know attendees and provide them with a casual, content-rich and personal environment. Our objective is to cultivate substantive and concrete dialogue between a select group of decision makers and help make things happen.
Marisa Peacock helps schools and small businesses enhance their online presence.
For a number of years, she has worked for non-profits, independent schools and small businesses, managing and producing websites, multimedia, and online content. While the goals and objectives may differ across these industries, she found a few similarities -- they were understaffed, underfunded and trying to keep up with an ever-evolving media. From online publishing to social media to mobile to multimedia, itâ€™s hard to know exactly what to do and how to do it.
Marisa helps organizations create and implement online strategies that appropriately target the right audience with the right information using the right media. She has presented at numerous conferences, including the Baltimore Design Conference and EdSocial Media Summit and hosted webinars aimed at promoting social media integration and web design strategies.
She received her Bachelorâ€™s degree from Mount Holyoke College and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) from Georgetown University. She lives in Arlington, VA with her boyfriend and Pit Bull, Sampson.
