Webinar: Kickstart 2021

How exactly does one approach a year you can’t plan for? You don’t look too far ahead, you stay on your toes, and you keep your donors engaged and listening.

In this webinar, we’ll address ways to think about 2021, how to be prepared for virtual, hybrid, and in-person fundraising, and how to make sure your donors are still excited about your cause. 

Keep the passion alive, they say.

We’ll cover:

  • Planning strategies for an unforeseen time
  • How to reinvigorate donors and get them excited again about your cause
  • Methods and best practices for adaptable year-round campaigns that can run virtually
