The holiday season finds people in the giving spirit which makes it a popular time for non-profits to host fundraisers. This year when the holidays come around, however, many states will still have limits on the number of people that can gather at one time. Don’t let this put a damper on the holiday fundraiser events you’re planning with our three tips for hosting a successful hybrid fundraiser.
1. Choose the right virtual auction software
2. Plan for online fundraising
Whether it’s a donation campaign or an online silent auction, make sure there’s an element of your fundraiser that’s completely online. That way you can reach additional people besides your fundraiser attendees.
3. Utilize social media
Social media is a great tool to connect your in-person and virtual attendees. Encourage attendees to share photos throughout the night, whether it’s a selfie at the event or a picture of their virtual setup. An event hashtag can help keep track of what is being shared online.
