How to Use Your Nonprofit Hashtags for Instagram

The hashtags that we’ve given you are just a starting point for your Nonprofit Hashtag strategy. These are general and used a lot. For example, as of today, #nonprofit has been used 1.7 million times. That means that you need to combine these nonprofit hashtags with other types of hashtags in order to be seen by people who convert. Let’s discuss how to do that.

Non profits need to use cause hashtags

Combine Nonprofit & Cause-Specific Hashtags

Sure, Global Elephants is a non-profit. But, if they used nonprofit hashtags alone, they’d significantly decrease the chances of being seen by people interested in elephants. These are the people who can most likely convert into donors. Combining both nonprofit hashtags and cause-specific hashtags increases the audience reach and chances of conversion.

Teach your staff and volunteers to use a custom hashtag

Include Your Nonprofit’s Brand Hashtag

These are great for branding and adding a little control to your message. City Harvest uses their hashtags on their posts and on their profile. This is a great way to be found when others are searching. Another great strategy is to ask your volunteers and donors to use their hashtag when posting about your nonprofit. It converts them into a marketing army!

Use city state and neighborhood hashtags for your non profit instagram posts

Use Location Hashtags

If your non-profit is location-based or is working on helping a particular location, then you need to use location hashtags to be found.  Guide Dog foundation is based in NY and as such tags the city to be found by people in and interested in NY.
