The Show Must Go On—Fundraising Despite the Odds

In turbulent and uncertain times, you are forced to make decisions that could have a major impact to your organization. The first order of business is having the knowledge to make an informed decision. The following recorded webinar will provide that necessary framework.


Virtual Fundraising Events Webinar with fundraising experts Samantha Swaim of Swaim Strategies, Kelly Russell of Artisan Auctions and Tracey Lorts of Greater Giving.
[Webinar Recorded: 3/19/20]
Everyone at Greater Giving is here for your organization. We’ve been dedicated to providing solutions to schools and nonprofits for the majority of the last two decades—in continuing that commitment, we are supporting nonprofit efforts to keep going during this unprecedented time with virtual fundraising events.

This recorded webinar shares examples of how nonprofits are successfully managing and migrating to virtual events including effective live streaming. We also share how to map your fundraising strategy going forward for the immediate future and beyond.

Questions we will answer:
  • What should your priorities be?
  • What are the three key areas you need to focus on right now?
  • What you will need to host a successful virtual event?
  • What does an effective communication plan look like?
Get your notebook out to jot down ideas and insights. Share this webinar with your teams and let us know any additional questions that come up—we would be happy to provide answers.

Embracing the Moment – A practical guide for executing a virtual fundraising auction

These are unprecedented times but it doesn’t mean you have to cancel your event. Embrace the moment and go virtual with your auction. It sounds scary, but it doesn’t have to be.

Virtual events are not new and you are likely already working with vendors that have the expertise you need to execute a virtual auction for your organization.

Much of the strategy you’ve built to fundraise for your organization stays the same, you just have to switch tactics to move away from a live event and into the virtual world.
