Digital is evolving, and so is Fundraising

The world of personal giving is changing, and as we embrace new and wonderful ways of interacting virtually, the nonprofit world has a huge opportunity opening up ahead of it. 

While the rise of avatar-based platforms has been broadly embraced as a meeting and conference solution, it seems the not for profit sector has yet to experiment with integrating additional platforms to the virtual space in order to further engage supporters and facilitate donations.

Together, American Cancer Society, Funraisin and Virbela have set out to explore this possibility both through theoretical discussion and practical applications... all while having a great time!

We aim to provide unique entertainment, new ways of imagining how digital giving can play in our future, whilst together, united in making an impact on global cancer control.

Let's try something new and lead the way for exciting innovations in fundraising.

American Cancer Society: Global Cancer Control

The American Cancer Societies global work is focused on lower-income countries, where we work across the full cancer continuum, predominantly in national referral hospitals, often the only facilities where cancer is currently addressed. We seek measurable results in countries where Ministries of Health, hospitals and civil society partners can make the most significant impact.

This event aims to explore this possibility both through theoretical discussion and practical implementation of such tools.

Through registering, creating your profile page and attending the event you will have the option to fundraise and donate to help the global cancer commmunity.
