Get Inspired and Stay #OpenForGood – Virtual Conference

The #OpenForGood Virtual Conference is for organizations that had to close their doors, pivot their missions, expand their operations, or struggle to stay afloat.

We brought together a group of leaders in the nonprofit space to dive into the learnings, takeaways, and changes nonprofits must understand to continue staying #OpenForGood. Learn everything from running virtual events and auctions, future-proofing your social media strategy, donor organization, digital communications, and more.
