What is gaming, esports, and streaming fundraising?
Show Notes

Two thirds of people in the US play video games.

And if that isn't surprising enough, games and streamers raise millions of dollars for nonprofits every year.

Could your organization benefit from this highly participatory, grass-roots, community-building type of fundraising?

On today's show, Louis gives a primer on the world of gaming, esports, streaming—and how it all ties back to philanthropy.

And you'll hear about the National Videogaming Giving Day, a way to showcase your nonprofit, engage your community, and attract diverse groups to your org.
