We will be joined by 2-3 guests who will share their successes in digital fundraising during the pandemic. They will each take a few minutes to share their experiences. The group will have time to ask questions and learn more about how they managed to transition to virtual and raise revenue!


I have SIX guests who will share their successes. You won't want to miss hearing from:

Janet Sherlip, Chief Visionary Officer of JKS by Design for TOPAchievers (TX) - Janet will share the secret sauce of her virtual gala and esports event featuring a silent auction and Twitch platform

Annie Volk, Volunteer Marketing Director of Shelby American Collection Car Museum (CO) - Annie’s organization held a virtual sweepstakes event that saved the closing of the museum

Lianna Magerr, Executive Director of Wilmington Children’s Chorus (DE) - Lianna found great success on Giving Tuesday NOW using social media, storytelling and matching funds

Jeannie Neathery, Major Gifts Officer of Hinds Hospice (CA)
Jeannie will share the story of her virtual walk/run with follow up appeal and virtual gala currently in the planning stages.

In addition, Colleen Duran with Gift of Life in Philadelphia will join us to share their quick pivot for an annual race and a unique “home-cooked heroes” volunteer program. Nancy Cox will share the details of the creative zoom “Owl-bomb” and “Fly-through” fundraising efforts with the Piedmont Wildlife Center in Durham, NC.

Feel free to bring your own experiences to share!

Normally, this is a small group meetup. For this event, however, registration will be opened to a larger audience.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and share! Register now!

--- DETAILS ---

CharityChats are small group meetings for nonprofit professionals aimed to help attendees solve pressing problems. There are no presentations, no powerpoints, and no lectures. Jen Newmeyer of CharityJen serves as the moderator and resource.

This is a virtual event hosted on Zoom. The link will be provided when registering and will be posted in the comments a few minutes before the meeting starts.

Unlike normal "Chats," this event will be recorded and posted back to the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) community board to adhere to the Open Forum Guidelines. I'm also happy to share the link with all Charity Chats members for those who are unable to attend!
