Virtual Fundraising Events

If COVID-19 has forced you to cancel or postpone your annual fundraiser, the community you serve can’t afford to wait for things to return to normal.

You still have a generous donor community that wants to help support you and your mission. You just need a different way to bring them together for a fundraising event.

Across the country, nonprofits have responded by doing virtual galas, online fundraisers where everyone can watch and enjoy themselves in the safety and comfort of their own homes, be inspired by your message, and join others in supporting their favorite causes.

Perhaps you’ve even watched a virtual fundraiser and thought that might be a good direction for your organization. But then you wondered “can we really raise enough money doing this?” or “where do I begin?”

I know it can seem daunting.

The good news is that results for virtual events are spectacular! You’ll net nearly as much or more than your in-person events. And I’m ready to help you with everything you need to ensure your virtual fundraiser is a huge success.

Look no further! Jerry is the emcee/auctioneer you've been hoping to find. A true professional, Jerry has a strong work ethic, authenticity, keen intuition, and the right balance of energy, humor and "let's do this" spirit on stage. Under the worst of circumstances (a global pandemic), Jerry worked with us every step of the way as we transitioned from an in person gala to a virtual online event. He did what needed to be done to ensure this first time event succeeded. He made himself available every step of the way and sometimes at a moments notice. He provided valuable input on the auction and fund-a-need. We benefitted from his experience and willingness to share with us when appropriate. He exceeded our expectations and so did our fundraising! Thanks Jerry!
