Virtual Fundraising Events

Your annual gala event is one of your most important fundraisers of the year.
It’s what you, your staff and volunteers have been working on for months on end— a fundraiser that helps support the programs and good work your organization provides.

What do you do when an unexpected situation happens that affects the ability to host a live event? Whether it’s weather-related or a public health concern, it’s a major conundrum.

The good news is you have options. You can choose to reschedule your event or move to a virtual fundraising event. Either way, you don’t have to lose the fundraising momentum you and your team have been working so hard for.

Feel free to visit our Virtual Fundraising Event Page for more information on running a successful virtual gala or virtual campaign.
