We are opening an opportunity for nonprofits to use video to tell their stories – helping attract volunteers, financial support and enthusiasm for the causes nonprofits work so tirelessly to address!
Cisco will be donating Flip Video cameras to nonprofit organizations, through a program we launched this week with TechSoup. Eligible nonprofits and libraries can request up to five bundles of MinoHD (US and Canada) and UltraHD (US only) video cameras.
In support of all the good that nonprofits do, Cisco works with dozens of nonprofit organizations every year through cash and technology donations – and we’re hopeful this new program will be another boost to their efforts. We believe that technology doesn’t just change businesses, we believe it can change the world.
If you work with a nonprofit organization, we hope you’ll apply – and then we hope you’ll share your stories with us, so we can share your stories with the world! Get your hands on a Flip, tell your story – and then send it our way, and we’ll share it via our Web and social media channels, to help multiply your impact.
Don’t know how to use video to tell your story? No problem, it’s easy. We’ve made a series of short tutorials about the power of video in helping nonprofits garner support, how to design a good video shoot, how to shoot it, and then how to edit it. Those can be found at cisco.com/go/flipforgood.
Further details on the US program can be found here, and the Canadian program here. In order to access the program, nonprofits need to register through TechSoup.org in the US or techsoupcanada.ca in Canada.
