So, it’s here to stay.
To make it easier, here are some tips and suggestions for creating impactful virtual video meetings, along with tutorial videos for several of the most popular video conferencing tools used by nonprofits.
Note: Most platforms have free versions and paid versions with more features. Always check whether any platform offers a free or reduced nonprofit price for the paid version. It may be listed on the website, or you can email and ask.
