Q6: Will there be any change in the Kimbia product? Will it still be available to me?

For Giving Day customers, projects for events scheduled through May 2018 are continuing as normal using the Kimbia Giving Day Event Manager. Those events will be supported throughout the project phase, event, and post-event as normal. Additionally, the GiveGab team is enhancing our capability and adding additional resources to allow for continued event support.
