Webinar: Debunking the Myths of Virtual Fundraising

Virtual Event Myth-busting

We won’t raise as much.

Our usual donors won’t be interested.

Sponsors won’t get bang for the buck.

We’ve heard all the myths, worries, and concerns. And we get it. We’re still in a time of extended uncertainty.

But here’s the good news: we have nine months of data that disproves many common concerns. And we’ll be sharing that data, those stories with you over the coming months.

Your mission is critical to the community you serve. Don’t let fear or uncertainty hold you back from your goals.

We’ll cover:

  • The myths – what are they
  • Examples of organizations who have found success in virtual fundraising
  • Methods and best practices for adaptable year-round campaigns that can run virtually
