Here’s to many successful fundraisers and events!
OurEvents was founded by Seth Berger. Seth has graduate degrees in mathematics and physics from Stanford and Harvard, respectively. After graduate school(s), Seth’s focus shifted to computer security and software development, and he founded a business to help individuals and businesses maintain secure computer networks.
Seth conceived of OurEvents after he designed and built a website for his daughter’s elementary school. As school webmaster, Seth pulled his hair out as he helped the PTO organize fundraisers, publicize events, recruit event volunteers via inefficient email exchanges and signup websites that offered no central location to find all of the school’s events and volunteering opportunities. Who had time for that?!?
Overwhelmed by an overloaded inbox, crossed-wires, and other challenges that no doubt you, too, have experienced, he decided there had to be a better way!
The result is a site that combines decades of software development and web programming with an appreciation for what organizations of all types go through to plan and execute successful fundraisers, events, and activities.
