Thinking about hosting your annual fundraiser, gala, or other special event virtually? Even before the current pandemic, many arts organizations and non-profits were starting to experiment with virtual online fundraising events, and now, as we still cannot gather in the same ways, we are all needing to connect with our constituents virtually. Today’s session features case studies from three organizations in South Dakota, who have had successes and learned from early attempts at hosting their key fundraising events virtually. The three presenters will share their experiences, followed by a joint Q&A and panel discussion focusing on how you can engage your donors and continue your past traditions in a new way.
