Charity Village: Beyond the Ballroom: A shift to virtual fundraising events

June 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Amid the cancellations and rescheduling of events during COVID-19, fundraising teams were faced with the challenge of reimagining how nonprofits fundraise during a global pandemic. At this free webinar, we’ll present a case study that will demonstrate how creative minds and pie-in-the-sky ideas helped reimagine a long-standing gala into a virtual fundraising event that maintains, if not exceeds, expectations and fundraising targets. Looking beyond the ballroom, this session will give attendees an inside look at how to successfully pivot during a pandemic and create hybrid and virtual galas. Keep all the important traditions of a signature fundraising gala while shaking things up!

You’ll leave this webinar with a thorough understanding of:

  • The need for simultaneous planning (virtual and hybrid/in person)
  • Why you need a comprehensive covid response plan
  • The importance event landing pages
