Webinar #5

Going virtual in a pandemic: How to engage donors and hold events  online


This webinar has been approved for 1.0 CFRE credit.


With in-person meetings and events cancelled for the near future, nonprofits have been trying to adjust their plans and move online. Nonprofit professionals have had to replace traditional galas and everyday programming with new, creative ways of engaging supporters and encouraging donations.


Because of these changes, some of the most common questions we get in our weekly webinar surveys are:

  • What are some creative ideas, examples, and tips for hosting virtual events?
  • What are the logistics behind launching a virtual event? 
  • Beyond events, what are other digital methods for keeping donor relationships strong and sustaining engagement?
  • With so many nonprofits reaching out and rushing to engage supporters online, how do we distinguish ourselves? 

In this webinar, Patrick Schmitt discusses how nonprofits can take their fundraising campaigns, donor engagement strategies, and big events to a digital platform.
