Going virtual part 2: How to plan your fall events


This webinar has been approved for 1.0 CFRE credit.


With apprehension around large gatherings, nonprofits have canceled the majority of in-person fundraising events this year. However, fundraising events are often a big source of donations for nonprofits, requiring them to come up with new, creative ways to hold events online and effectively engage supporters.


In this webinar, we covered:

  • How events have been affected by the current crisis
  • Tips for pivoting to virtual events and engaging supporters with video
  • How to plan for the fall
  • Creative examples from the community


Patrick Schmitt, the Co-CEO of FreeWill, was joined by special guest, Tiffany Parnes, the Director of Capital Campaigns and Special Events at Perry Davis Associates. They discussed tips and strategies that nonprofits can use to plan effective, virtual fall fundraising events.
