This month on everydayhero | August 2016

Welcome to the month of August! We hope your month has been off to a great start – ours certainly has been with the 2016 edition of bbcon where we got to meet with like-minded fundraising professionals and share the passion that fuels the not-for-profit sector! Be sure to keep an eye on our blog for a recap of some the event’s highlights. Until then here’s a few things happening on everydayhero this August: PLATFORM UPDATE We are constantly bringing new features and integrations to make sure you have the best experience with our platform. This month we’re excited to introduce:
  • Eventbrite Integration Soon everydayhero will be integrating with Eventbrite, providing charities with a seamless integration between registration and fundraising. Learn more about Eventbrite on their website.
WEBINARS We’re always looking for ways we can help charities up-skill and get the most out of their membership. Sign up for this month’s webinar:
  • Hospital Sector Fundraising Strategies Tuesday 30 August When it comes to fundraising, the hospital sector faces very specific challenges. Discover how you can develop and implement effective initiatives such as community and patient fundraising, department based fundraising, hospital events and appeals.
MAJOR COMMUNITY EVENTS August is our biggest month yet for major community events, with six fun runs/marathons taking place. With just weeks left before race day, now is the perfect time to encourage and motivate your fundraisers to push for those final donations. Wishing you the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing what your wonderful supporters achieve for your cause! REMINDERS The countdown is on! With the Great Southern Crossing kicking off on 1st September, we hope you are well on your way to having your teams trained and ready to take on the challenge. Need a little help recruiting participants? Don’t worry, we have compiled some great resources to help you reach out and recruit cyclists for your teams, which you can find here. Leverage this virtual event to engage with supporters all over the country and raise more funds for your cause.
