Best Charity Webinars

As a charity whose purpose is to encourage and promote digital fundraising we believe that webinars are not only a great way to explain a charity’s core purpose but also of unlocking new audiences.

With live events curtailed, never has the charity sector been more reliant on recommendation and word of mouth, making webinars the perfect platform to give your charity a voice.
