Virtual Donor Cultivation Events: How to design meaningful and interactive virtual experiences online on Zoom to boost your fundraising!

Virtual Donor Cultivation Events is a training designed for fundraisers and organizational leaders…

…who are looking for innovative ways to engage donors online and to create virtual donor experiences.

Because: Covid-19 has radically changed the way we work as fundraisers and nonprofit leaders. 2020/21 will be marked by this global pandemic and the need for social distancing; restrictions and concerns for public health and safety will continue to inform how we meet and engage with our most loyal supporters and major funders. 

What do you do without in-person parlor meetings, cocktail parties, donor briefings, and even donor mission trips? Webinars alone will not suffice to bring donors into the conversation, to build loyalty to your organization, and create social connections.

The Answer: Interactive Virtual Donor Cultivation Events on Zoom!
