challenge - shifting to a virtual event where majority of donors are older and prefer in-person interaction versus online
Tucker @ Thrive Impact
01:32:21
PUT QUESTIONS IN THE CHAT AS YOU HAVE THEM!
Barb Collura, RESOLVE
01:33:13
How far in advance should we market our "virtual" event?
Helen (Front Row Foundation)
01:35:57
What are some fun, purely social ways for attendees to interact virtually. Games, activities, connection topics? Things to stay away from? Hoping for a social feel vs purely informational.
Kevin @ Thrive Impact
01:36:18
What technologies platforms have you seen used that have been successful
Lauren Witherspoon
01:36:38
Would you suggest a truly “live” online event, or a prerecorded event being played live on a platform like Youtube? Also what platforms would you suggest using?
Crystal Rucker
01:36:48
Our event was canceled the day before it was scheduled once the city declared a limitation on large gatherings. How can we re-engage the donors who were excited about the in-person event, especially if the majority of the attendees do not necessarily engage online/virtually?
Lisa Hess @ The Lamb Center
01:38:06
Will encouraging monthly donations pull away from the big 1-time donations we're used to at the annual banquet?
michellegale
01:39:41
Very well said
Heller An Shapiro, ArtStream
01:40:26
our monthly donors are different from our big donors. They prefer smaller monthly gifts and can’t make one big gift.
Patrick Madden
01:40:48
any suggestions on convincing board members to go virtual w events when they prefer/expect person and have for years
Walda Roseman
01:45:00
you mentioned tone deafness re donors’ challenges. given that, how do you see donor receptivity to sponsorships and donations changing?
sandrat
01:49:17
Can you provide more insight in securing sponsorships for virtual events?
Heller An Shapiro, ArtStream
01:53:30
we’ve seen scavenger hunts within the home…
vanpeake

Please define what do you mean when you say what the sponsor is looking for? Please elaborate.

What creative or innovative ideas or tactics are you doing or seeing other nonprofits do to fundraise or attract sponsors?
sandrat

Love the break out groups!
Emily Gage, Phoenix Bikes
02:18:05
Random question, but how are you playing background music on the call? I like that option for a virtual event!
Heller An Shapiro, ArtStream
02:18:55
just saw a gala that was in a zoom webinar format, so leadership could speak to audience in zoom group, then pre-recorded videos were just screen-shared.
Brendan Bailes
02:20:29
Emily -- as a host (or participant actually) you can "share content". So Tucker is playing music on his computer, and choosing the option to "share audio" (a Zoom function)
Melisa
02:21:41
I have to hop off - thank you for the info; I'm looking forward to the recap you send out!
