Are you a Community Non-profit Leader?
We are excited to launch a community calendar partnership to improve communication with residents and among organizations in the community. We are working with Burbio.com, a free platform for non-profits and residents that streams library, school, and non-profit event information for communities all in one place.
Burbio.com offers a free website, iPhone App and Android App that allow residents to personalize what events they see, add events to their digital calendar, and be notified when things change. All events on Burbio.com appear on Amazon Alexa, and are optimized for Google Search.
Burbio currently streams our Library, Town and school events. Now we want to add all our great non-profit organizations.
Burbio's free platform reads Facebook event feeds, Google calendar feeds, iCal feeds, or can be manually updated, and provides free collateral and social sharing tools for your group. And the Burbio team is available to assist you with this immediately!
If you are interested in participating, please email Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help you and your team get set up.
Also, if you can think of anyone in town that I may have missed, please let them know about Burbio! I think it could be a great way to get all of our events listed in one place.
