Every year, charity and not-for-profit organizations rely on galas, walks, runs, and other in-person events for fundraising. These organizations play a critical role in our economy but, more importantly, they support vibrant communities. But how are these organizations thriving without in-person events? In this episode of GetConnected AT WORK, Mike and Chris speak with Brandon Hui, Board Chair of Vancouver’s S.U.C.C.E.S.S Foundation about how technology can be used in fundraising. Brandon shares with us how S.U.C.C.E.S.S. adapted to raise money in the face of the pandemic.
