Virtual Fundraising

We stand by you while you are adapting to this new situation and as we all find creative solutions to keep up our important work.

As many of you told us, one of the easiest ways to stay connected to your donors and devotees is via live stream. This gives you the chance to maintain those strong relationships by talking with them face-to-face. We have compiled a list of different types of streaming channels for you to use with some instructions on how to set each of them up. 

We hope you find this article useful; please let us know what worked best for you and how we can help!
