The Nonprofit Insights webinar series brings major thought leaders and experts to you for thought-provoking presentations on a variety of issues related to technology and engaging your community members for social good.
These days, it’s not just about the fancy technology you use to raise money and support online – it’s how you use it. As more nonprofits turn to online platforms like Razoo for crowdfunding campaigns, the world of online fundraising can seem a bit like the Wild Wild West.
What separates the campaigns that just “do alright” from the ones that go viral and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars or more? You might be surprised to know that the difference is made by virtual volunteers – online champions that care so much about their causes they give their time and tap their networks to help raise money for nonprofit organizations.
