How will Hybrid Fundraising Events look in 2020 and beyond?

We’ve had many conversations with nonprofits and organizations over the past few months figuring out the best way to navigate events and fundraisers for the future.

Based on these conversations, we’ve been able to come up with a Hybrid Fundraising Solution for your upcoming and future events.
