About the Webinar

One thing this pandemic has shown us is that organizations large and small have pivoted their event delivery to connect with donors where they are—at home. Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation, UC Davis and Purdue University will share their insights on why and how they have pivoted events or created new events to maximize donor engagement and connection through technology.

You will hear about events such as donor recruitment events, groundbreakings, campaign-related events and events for leadership annual donors.

Learning Objectives:

1. Virtual events can draw new audiences and connect people to your institution even while apart.
2. Change and experimentation can be positive for your donors. 
3. All donor types are adapting to and relying upon technology to connect to your organization.
