In the season of gratitude and giving, nonprofit organizations face unique challenges in capturing the hearts and minds of existing and prospective donors. With 1.9 million people starting or donating to a fundraiser on Facebook and Instagram during the Season of Giving 2020, making the most of digital tools is essential to fundraising and engaging with your supporters in 2021.

Join us in our final session of Elevate Live for the year on December 16th at 12pm PT, where Veronica Peñaloza Wolfermann, Nonprofit Account Manager at Facebook, will sit down with Deldelp Medina, Executive Director at Black & Brown Founders, to learn more about their mission to “rewrite the playbook” for entrepreneurs in the Black and Latinx & Hispanic communities, and dive into how you can maximize your fundraising efforts and meet your goals, all in an effort to make the world a better place.
