 Pivots and Possibilities: How to Raise Money in 2021

Nonprofits have learned unexpected lessons about fundraising during the past year. Giving in response to the pandemic exceeded giving for all previous disasters. Donations under $250 were one of the main drivers of the increase in giving. Virtual events that replaced in-person galas were wildly successful. The bottom line: Americans are generous during tough times. As we continue life in a pandemic, nonprofits must get creative, explore new fundraising ideas, and build strong relationships with supporters. This webinar will inspire participants to dream big, innovate, take risks, and transform the way they raise money in 2021.
