how nonprofits can communicate online -- simply and inexpensively

Studio 501c

Here's how Naisy Dolar, a Chicago aldermanic candidate, used a blog to chronicle election-day happenings in a recent run-off in Chicago's 50th ward. Here's an utterly excellent post from a new favorite, The Bamboo Project blog by Michele Martin. Michele shows how small nonprofits can use the web -- for an investment of $60 or less -- to communicate with clients, donors, advocates, volunteers, and other supporters.
