Authentic Fundraising in a Virtual World (Virtual Workshop)

Last updated August 11, 2020

Adapt your fundraising practices to today’s virtual environment without sacrificing authenticity.


As a frontline fundraiser, you have likely honed your “fundraising voice” over time. You have learned to embody crucial tenets such as integrity, listening, and humility in ways that feel authentic and purposeful. As you continue adapting to a virtual workflow, have you considered whether your fundraising voice is deeply rooted in handshakes or face-to-face meetings? Have you felt less “yourself” while fundraising virtually?

Join us online for an in-depth virtual training where our experts will help you adapt your fundraising practices to the online environment and become more successful. Our panel will help you determine key tenets of your own unique voice as a frontline fundraiser. Through small group roleplays, you will learn how to leverage these characteristics, and you’ll leave the training with clear next steps for fundraising more authentically in a virtual world.

Who should attend?

Frontline fundraisers who need more practice in every stage of virtual fundraising (whether they work in leadership annual, major, principal, or planned giving) will benefit most from this training. Leaders within advancement shops who want to train others on becoming more authentic in a virtual environment may also find the content of this training valuable.
