Come Together — and Get on EventCheck Knox
By Tiffani Mensch on May 07, 2020
From the latest In Any Event blog post by Maria Cornelius:
“This, too, shall pass.”
Those encouraging words come from Jerry Askew, the president of the Alliance for Better Nonprofits, which helps organizations in East Tennessee stay strong and sustainable.
Nonprofits have been battered by COVID-19 because of the postponement or cancellation of primary fundraisers, many of which occur in the spring months.
A survey of 400 nonprofits in the region by ABN and the United Way of Greater Knoxville asked about revenue loss and received 203 responses. The results revealed an eye-popping $12 million loss among those 203 nonprofits.
Askew also has some advice: “Get your event on EventCheck Knox now.”
