    What Every Nonprofit Should Know About Cryptocurrency

    FREE Webinar!
    Wednesday, February 20, 2019
    1:00pm – 2:00pm Eastern (noon Central/10:00am Pacific)

    Hundreds of millions of dollars in cryptocurrency were donated in 2017. Because the IRS has classified cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, it's just like donating stocks or real estate; yet, it can be instantly converted to U.S. dollars on the public market.

    Is your nonprofit ready to take advantage of this new trend in fundraising? Join us for this webinar, and learn the basics about cryptocurrency.

    Topics include:
    • How cryptocurrency works
    • The benefits of accepting cryptocurrency donations
    • How the Lupus Foundation has incorporated cryptocurrency into their fundraising program – with big results!

    • Mark Becker, Founding Partner, Cathexis Partners
    • Pat Duffy, Integration Director, Lupus Foundation of America
    • Alex Wilson, Founding Partner, The Giving Block

    Register now

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    Write the Perfect Request for Proposal for your next Web Project

    Friday, February 22, 2019 | 11am-11:30am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET

    Register Online

    Many organizations create a request for proposal (RFP) to invite agencies to bid on their website design project. A well-designed RFP can be an important step toward a great new website.

    As the owner of a digital agency that has been building websites for over a decade, I've seen thousands (really, thousands) of RFPs over the years. Some are really great. Many are not. 

    In this (free) 30-minute webinar, we'll review the 5 most common mistakes in website RFPs. We'll also review a template for creating a great website RFP and answer your questions. Each participant will also receive a copy of the Model Website RFP Template.
