Recently, I shared some thoughts on hosting virtual fundraising galas. I do realize nothing takes the place of celebrating in person with donors and stakeholders however, until the pandemic is behind us, large gatherings will be on pause until we can ensure everyone’s safety.
In the meantime, organizations are finding new ways to engage donors and virtual galas seem to be gaining momentum. I received great feedback from last week’s post and I noticed one question came up frequently so I decided to address it here.
Do you even need a team to plan a virtual gala? After all, we’re not in person right?
Well, here’s my take on that.
