event software for nonprofits

All the event management and registration tools you’ll ever need to run a successful event for your nonprofit.

What if you had an army of robots to do all the grunt work for your events?

This isn’t science fiction: this is the reality of many event managers. 

Instead of manually processing registrations, running checks to the bank, or trying to keep track of everything in Excel, they’re using event management software that acts like a robot to do it all for them.

And that’s just the beginning.

There's event software for nonprofits that can do almost anything you can imagine for your events, like helping you create beautiful event invitations, updating your event’s social media, or managing registrations automatically.

Ariana Stecker, a leading expert in the event planning world and the Chief Operating Officer at Save the Date®, an event planning company, says that the top event managers are the ones who leverage technology the most.

For example, she’s seen clients easily raise 20% more funds from their events simply by using software tools to enable online event registration and bidding.

She further points out that technology not only makes things easier for event managers, but creates a better overall experience for guests too.

If you’re looking to raise more money and make managing your events easier, read on! There are many great options available for any type of organization.
