Help reach donors online in an engaging virtual gala platform allowing your donors to interact, be entertained, and to give to your foundation from the comfort of their homes. Virtual Gala’s offer great donor turnout with very little overhead costs to your charity.

2. Hybrid Gala

If you’re planning a Winter Holiday Gala for your foundation this year, you can enhance that experience by offering a Hybrid – part in person and part -online gala! This hybrid format offers your donors who can’t attend a chance to participate in the event via a livestream video feed and online bidding options which integrate seamlessly with in-person bidding.

3. Online Silent Holiday Auction
