Supporting nonprofits through difficult times is what we were built to do. One of the first things Harvest has done is create a virtual community that meets daily in Livestream gatherings on the Harvest Facebook page. Harvest is calling them the Do Good Better Lunch-Ins and they broadcast every weekday at Noon for 30 minutes on Facebook.

They have national experts lined up as discussion guides.

Here are the dates and topics for the Good Better Lunch-Ins:
March 26: Using your database to identify your best prospects for giving during these challenging times
March 27th: Future emergency planning and preparing for the nonprofit sector
March 30th: Data and Technology Assessments

April 1st: Grants: The A, B, C's
April 2nd: Collecting Data: We have an app for that
April 3rd: Creativity in Crisis
April 7th: Your Gala is cancelled. Now what?
