Things You Shouldn't Be Paying For


Published on

Every year, nonprofits worldwide (maybe even yours!) spend big bucks on services like creative design, IT help, professional development, and search engine optimization. But it doesn't necessary have to be that way. Shauna Carey, Community Manager for Sparked, the microvolunteering network, will introduce tools and providers that can save your nonprofit or department hundreds, or in some cases, thousands, of dollars. Sometimes, the best way to fundraise is simply to spend less.
