Guest speakers: Holly Wagg and Fraser Green, Good Works

Nearly a year ago, we decided we simply couldn’t work with unreliable or incomplete statistics, and that you shouldn’t have to either. So we decided to poll Canadian charities to get a better sense of what the state of the web nation actually is.

Early in 2014, over 500 Canadian charities took the survey where we asked them about everything from website strategy and revenue tracking to metrics and digital fundraising activities. We’ve crunched numbers, looked at the data while standing on our heads, and today we’re pleased to share with you the findings. This report – the first of its kind – sets the benchmarks for the performance of Canadian charity websites across 26 domains.

This webinar will walk you through the high level findings, why this matters for your bottom line, and will give you access to the full report including data tables.
