Last night, Rally hosted our inaugural Nonprofit Happy Hour at the RallyPad in downtown San Francisco. Thanks to the fifty nonprofit leaders who showed up to share ideas, experiences, and advice. The Rally team was honored to meet and mingle with our fabulous guests, including:
– Cindy Tsai, Operations Manager at KIPP Bay Area Schools. KIPP is transforming the future of education in the United States through their innovation-focused charter school network.
– Marce Gutiérrez, the Founder & Executive Director of The Azul Project. Marce has successfully fought for legislation to protect our oceans and ban shark-finning in the US and Mexico. Since sharks are Rally’s unofficial mascot, we are huge fans of Marce’s work.
– Robyn King, the Founder & CEO of Digital Literary Arts Studios. DLA Studios provides digital arts education, training, and hands-on experience to youth and young adults. DLA Studios is also the winner of our “Event-in-a-Box” giveaway at the San Francisco Social Media for Nonprofits conference this month. We can’t wait to help them throw an awesome fundraiser at the RallyPad.
– Cara Jones, the Founder of Storytellers for Good. She leads a team of passionate journalists and photographers who seek to use their skills to inspire optimism and change. We’re excited to find ways to collaborate with Cara, since Rally’s social fundraising tools operate on the premise that great stories create movements and raise money.
Huge thanks to FAIR. Spirits for sponsoring our cocktail menu, which featured creations such as “The Red Rally,” “Wolf Berry Sour,” and “The Nine A.M.”
