Juneteenth 2020


Black Lives Matter is more than a global movement. It’s deeply personal, fraught with potential missteps and easy to get wrong. At Community Brands, we realize it’s too important not to try.

We proudly affirm that Black Lives Matter and to commemorate the anniversary of Juneteenth and to support a dialogue around racial justice, Community Brands Nonprofit Solutions is the exclusive sponsor of a special event hosted by The Nonprofit Times:

The Role of Nonprofits in Racial Equity 

Moderated by: Paul Clolery (Editorial Director, NPT Publishing)

Monday, June 22 | 2pm ET

Joining the panel will be:

  1. Brian Gallagher, President & CEO of United Way Worldwide
  2. Marc Morial, President & CEO of the National Urban League
  3. Ben Jealous, President & CEO of People For The American Way
  4. Kristen Clarke, President & Executive Director of The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
  5. Naomi Wadler, Student/Activist

We’d love for you to join us in the conversation.

Ongoing, watch this space as we regularly spotlight our customers on the frontlines fighting injustice. We know this is just the beginning. We will continue to work to support our customers in their important work.

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
