Nonprofits: How to Have a Successful Virtual Fundraising Event

Fundraise from Home

When the COVID-19 stay at home order was issued, LaunchCode had to quickly pivot their trivia night fundraiser to a virtual event. Kathy McCadden, LaunchCode’s Donor Relations Manager, determined the best way to execute this annual fundraising event in a new format while still raising money for LaunchCode. After a lot of hard work and planning, LaunchCode’s first virtual trivia night was a huge success — we doubled the amount raised from 2019 to 2020!

In this webinar, Kathy will guide you through everything you need to know to plan a successful virtual trivia night fundraiser based on first-hand experience. She’ll share tips and tricks and layout the pros and cons of hosting a virtual fundraiser, and you can download the slide deck here: Virtual Trivia Night Webinar Slide Deck.
