PBP is in full gear as we ramp up our busy fall season! 
Dear friends of Powered by Professionals
We hope that our Fall Newsletter finds you and your family and friends healthy and safe. Now that fall has officially begun, that means our event season is underway and over the course of just one week, PBP has already produced three very successful events that all surpassed their fundraising goals!

  • On September 12th, we held a virtual 5K for the MDS Foundation focused on supporters here in New York City. This was only the first of four awareness run/walks that we are planning for the Foundation around the country so keep reading to learn how you can sign up for one of the next ones!
  • On September 16th, we put on a hybrid in-person/virtual event for the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance with some attendees gathering together at a brewery to socialize at a safe distance while others were able to watch the livestreamed program from home.
  • On September 17th, we produced our first virtual gala of the season for the NACDL Foundation for Criminal Justice where close to 500 people tuned in for the virtual program! From the motivational words shared by NACDL Lifetime Achievement Awardee, Bryan Stevenson, to the musical performance from co-funder and former Barenaked Ladies bandmate, Steven Page, this was an inspirational night to be remembered.

You can watch the recording of the MDS event here and we will be sharing the streams from our other events on our website and social media soon so don't forget to check back!

Social Media Marketing for Your Non-Profit’s
Virtual Event
It can be easy to put social media on the back-burner, but dedicating the time to put together a marketing campaign for your event can make all the difference. Here are a handful of tips for taking your event viral in the social media world:

The Future of Events is Virtual
Virtual and hybrid events are becoming the standard because the way we interact as a people is changing, with modern tech making connection easier than ever – and though technology can never replace human connection, it can surely bridge the gaps.

Digital Marketing Solutions for Non-Profit Organizations
In the wake of COVID-19, maintaining a strong online presence is more important than ever before. Your website should be a tool that works around the clock to share your mission across the globe in order to attract more donors to your cause.

This can be a very trying time for nonprofits and PBP wants to do what it can to help support nonprofits in any way we can! If you are with a non-profit, or thinking of starting one, and want any development advice or a sounding board, contact PBP at [email protected] and we will set up a 30-minute call at no charge with one of our team members.
