Renee Zau is the Co-founder of DonationMatch and SamplingforGood.  These self-service online platforms transform how companies use product donations and samples for marketing at school and community events.  This in turn helps organizations more easily secure in-kind donations for fundraising event auctions, raffles, and gift bags with a single application. Renee has served on over 50 event committees, chaired silent auctions, managed the regional marketing for Curves centers (owning up to three at a time herself), and currently provides consulting to both event leaders and marketing managers through DonationMatch as well.
