Not sure what to do about your fundraising event during coronavirus?

Here’s How to Make the Shift to Virtual Fundraising.

We’ve seen unprecedented changes in our social and economic fabric due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many of these developments have hit non-profits hard, even as they face a surge in immediate needs. As our non-profit partners began to face the possibility of cancelling fundraising events, our team immediately mobilized to help them shift gears instead. While organizations can postpone or reschedule events as a start, most non-profits must change their fundraising strategies to incorporate new virtual tactics.

Qtego is helping non-profits make the shift to virtual fundraising with helpful resources and individual consultations. As always, our team stands with you with fail-safe technology and concierge service.

Create a Virtual Fundraising Strategy

How can you fundraise in spite of social distancing? Should you be changing, postponing, or cancelling a fundraising event? Qtego has resources to help you make the move to virtual fundraising in the coronavirus economy. Our team is your team during this critical time, with expert insight into which virtual fundraising options make the most sense for your unique organization, mission, and circumstances. Find the resources you need, or reach out for a one-on-one consultation with our experienced fundraising team.

Virtual Ticketing

Expand your reach with virtual ticketing. Make your livestream access exclusive, and expand your reach for in-person/livestream hybrid events. Qtego makes it quick and easy for guests to get tickets and single-use access codes–no hassle, downloads, or additional accounts needed! Use virtual tickets to avoid selling out events, or to work around geography, weather, space, or health concerns.

Online Auctions

Cancelling a fundraising event is painful for your bottom line, but with Qtego’s flexible platform, you have options. If you have to postpone or reschedule an in-person fundraising event, you can still host your auction through Qtego’s user-friendly platform. We make it easy to showcase your items, build engagement with your guest list, and raise more money—even without an in-person event. Online auctions can happen anywhere, in spite of social distancing, and they’re a great way to meet your fundraising goals and stay connected to your donors.

On Stage and On Camera

Keeping an audience engaged takes practice, whether you’re running your event in-person, are fully virtual, or choose a hybrid style where some guests are at the venue and others watch from home. Virtual fundraising adds a layer of complexity, but Qtego’s tools make it easy to stay in control of your event from on stage, on camera, or both. We’ve put together a page of resources specifically dedicated to your up-front personality. Share them with your auctioneer or emcee, or use them to help your staff plan, practice, and perform with success at your event.

How About a Hybrid Fundraising Event?

Social distancing at your venue? Need a rain option? Want to invite guests from out of town? Plan a hybrid fundraising event. Some guests attend in-person. Others watch and participate via Livestream. Qtego makes it seamless.

In-Person Fundraising Events with Social Distancing

Use your Qtego tools for touchless registration, check-in, seating, auctions, and check-out. Get great tips for keeping your guests and staff safe while still enjoying the energy and excitement of an in-venue fundraising event.

Comprehensive Virtual Fundraising Events

Many organizations are already using social media to stay in touch with donors. But there are many more ways to use online platforms for fundraising! We’re working with non-profits around the country to make the switch. Our team can help you navigate the transition to virtual fundraising with expert insight into the best practices being used by other organizations like yours.

Broadcast Outreach

Social media is a terrific way to interact with your supporters, but many platforms radically limit who sees your posts. To keep in touch with donors and supporters, non-profits are looking at multiple ways to handle donor cultivation virtually. Our team helps you get back to basics and reconstruct a donor cultivation program that works during social distancing. Qtego’s platform makes it easier to make the transition, and gives you multiple ways to magnify your message and increase your reach.

Immediate Connection

In a time of crisis, most people want to help but don’t know how. Non-profits are on the front lines to care for our communities and already have the infrastructure to deliver aid. To keep their operation going, organizations are finding new ways to connect donors to specific, critical needs. The same Qtego technology that makes in-person fund-a-needs so effective can also help you with virtual fundraising.

New Sponsorships

Rethinking sponsorships can help you bridge cash flow gaps in a rapidly changing economy. Many businesses, like car dealerships and banks, are scrambling to get more online exposure—and your organization is taking fundraising online. Digital sponsorships are win-win relationships for businesses and non-profits. Qtego gives you more options for sponsor visibility before, during, and after virtual fundraising events. Our team can help you shift your sponsorship strategy to make it more effective than ever before.

All of Your Virtual Fundraising…On One Homepage

A virtual fundraising homepage collects all of your efforts in one interactive, professionally-designed page. Qtego makes it easy to quickly add or change video, photo, and other elements for a clear overview of everything your organization is doing to raise money. Include online auctions, donations, immediate needs, sponsorships, and more. Simplify your presentation so donors know exactly why, when, and how to give to your organization’s virtual fundraising campaigns.

Livestream Fundraising Video

Bring the best of your in-person events to your virtual fundraising, too. Qtego makes it easy to embed a livestream video on your Qsite, so guests can watch speakers, live auctions, games, and other programming from the same page they use to bid, donate, and interact throughout your event. Use the platform of your choice to immerse guests in your event, connect them to your cause, and elevate your virtual fundraising to a whole new level.

Integrated Chat

With Qtego, virtual fundraising events don’t have to be passive. Our integrated chat feature let’s guests interact–with you, with event hosts, and with each other–in real time. Use Qtego Chat to ask questions, play games, and give prizes during your event. Guests love to stay active and experience the event with other people, and you’ll love the added opportunity for personal connections to strengthen your donor cultivation efforts. Keep guests involved in your event from start to finish with Qtego Chat.

Instead of cancelling a fundraising event, get the support you need to move into virtual fundraising.
