We believe that technology is instrumental in helping fundraisers maximise their relationship with supporters. Whether it's more efficient ways of communicating or providing easy options to give, technology helps charities and non-profits extend the reach of their organisation and connect with a wider supporter base. We're therefore excited to attend AIME 2018 as participants and exhibitors.Â We can't wait to see what's happening (and what's going to happen) in our industry that will introduce our clients to new and exiting aways to connect with their supporters.
