"This workshop was very beneficial and filled with great tips for hosting an online fundraiser. Learning about giving platforms, best practices for donor outreach along with new ideas to connect with supporters and event timelines is important during this new normal for organizations serving communities."

Kelsey Castrey, Associate, Westby Associates

"As a board member for a small nonprofit, we are looking to go from a traditional fundraiser to a virtual fundraiser this year due to the pandemic. Not being tech savvy, I was very wary going forward, but this webinar really opened my eyes to the advantages of this type of gala for engaging our community and getting more name recognition also. Leah was a very clear and concise presenter, and gave very good tips for different types of fundraising which can be done virtually."

Felicia O'Brien, Board Member, Colorado Honor Band Association

"This webinar was extreme valuable for me in navigating my first ever virtual event planning. Not only was I given slides to take notes upon, but I was immediately emailed a recording as well. The host answered all my typed questions verbally during the presentation. Having information provided to me based on recent experiences and what has worked and hasn’t was more valuable than anything I could have imagined. I am rethinking our entire plan. Glad I signed up. Will be back."
