Beginning last spring, many organizations quickly pivoted their plans from an in person Gala or fundraiser to a virtual one due to the pandemic. As we begin 2021, it’s evident that large, in person events still aren’t possible, at least for the first half of the year. If you are planning your first virtual event or it’s your second, you will hear and learn from the panelists on the lessons they learned from their virtual events, their results and the post-event activities they established for on-going cultivation and stewardship. This session will focus on the fundraising and engagement strategies for the virtual platform and not the technical aspects of virtual programming.

Anticipated takeaways:

Tips on best practices for achieving your event fundraising goals in a virtual setting.
Ideas for post event cultivation and stewardship
How to maximize resources and results
