Whether virtual or in real life (IRL), awareness campaigns or fundraising campaigns for nonprofits take a lot of work. In fact, it’s often a full-time job for at least one to three months prior to the event.
And then, you barely have time to bask in the success of this year’s event before you start working on the next one.
