In Episode 4, we invited back our CEO and co-founder Michael Wasserman to talk about the importance of taking your fundraising programs and adapting them to a more digital experience. At the time of recording, the world is currently facing a pandemic (COVID-19), which is causing the world to cancel social gatherings of all sizes. Because of this, charities are now missing out on in-person events (run/walks, galas, etc.) - so while we have always encouraged nonprofits to take the leap into the virtual world, now, more than ever, is the time to get started!

For this episode, we decided to do it as a live recording on Twitch - which included many presentation slides and other visuals! So while you can definitely listen to this podcast recording and get a good grasp of what we're talking about, we do suggest checking out the video version on YouTube for the full experience this week!
