Many of us in the nonprofit space know how much effort goes into organizing large, annual events.
Even though many of us are entrenched in the intersection between our work and technology, we often struggle with finding ways to make our lives simpler. In today's world, cloud technology can allow most nonprofits with an Internet connection to access hundreds of files, manage multiple teams, and keep track of others whether they are remote or across the office.
Last year, our organization, Games for Change
, put together the largest Festival in our 8 year history. With over 800+ attendees and another 10,000 viewing online, we've sold out the event while doubling attendance and income. Much of the organizing was done with new staff and new ambitions. While the Festival proves to be bigger than ever, yet easier to manage with a series of tools being used by the entire team.
