Literacy Organizations and Pinterst

If you haven’t already done so, you should consider opening up a pinterest account for your organization. Pinterest allows users to share images with one another. If you already have a personal account, you probably see many food recipes and cute DIY home decorations. Pinterest for a nonprofit is similar, but you can use it in a variety of ways. Here are things you can post/have boards of as a literacy organization.

  1. Resources!
    • Post your favorite resources for everyone to share. Make sure they have a picture on the website, and make notes of why it’s your favorite place in the comment section.
    • Or, post a picture of something that worked really well with your students.
  2. Infographics
    • Images and statistics are powerful. When you combine them in an infographic, you can help make people understand why your cause is important.
  3. Inspiration
    • Post inspirational quotes from famous authors and people of history about literacy. Remind people what makes reading important and all the reasons why they love about it.
    • You can also post success stories of students! Show people the difference you make every day.
  4. Showcase what you love!
    • Make it personal. Have your staff share books they are reading or their favorite new gadgets in the industry. This makes it personal and relatable.
  5. Highlight your community
    • Let people know why your partners are so great! This is the place to say that a certain bank has been awesome enough to run a financial literacy class or that the local clinic donated supplies for your health literacy program. It’s an easy way to help out those who have helped you.
