THE GALA IN 2021 IS STILL VIRTUAL:
CREATING SUCCESS WITH VIRTUAL GALAS
& WHAT WE LEARNED IN 2020
During this pandemic, we know gathering is difficult but our team wants to help you fundraise for your mission even if it looks a little different this year. Nonprofits across the country quickly shifted in the spring of 2020 to host their in-person fundraisers on Zoom, Facebook live, and other platforms. We now realize that the gala will be virtual in 2021. So, let’s do it better. We will share what we learned along the way from participating in and supporting 50+ virtual galas in 2021. This workshop will cover lessons learned from 2020, how to engage your audience, what should be pre-recorded versus live, how to incorporate silent auctions and live asks into a fundraiser, and even unique ways to do a hybrid gala for when some folks are interested in gathering but others are not. Let’s do the virtual gala better in 2021!
