Fundraising Under COVID-19

Formerly Addressing COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect fundraisers and their opportunities to provide In-Person events, there are still many opportunities to allow your guests, donors, and bidders to help you raise funds for your projects.

We know that it takes a lot of time and effort to make your event successful and how critical it is to your organization’s fundraising goals.

A great place to look for ideas is our article Auction Fundraiser in the Shadow of COVID-19open in new window found in our Auctria blog. We also have the article What to do in 2022, Future-proof the Event Fundraiseropen in new window to help keep things on track.
