How to design meaningful & engaging virtual experiences on Zoom 

Virtual Donor Cultivation Events is a training designed for fundraisers and organizational leaders who are looking for innovative ways to engage donors online and to create virtual donor experiences on Zoom.

In this training, I will introduce you to live virtual alternatives to your thoughtfully crafted in-person cultivation events where personal connections can be made and future giving decisions formed.


I will invite you to imagine new ways of involving your donors beyond webinars and video conferencing. And, I will show you how to actively engage your donors in the experience using powerful facilitation techniques, zoom breakout rooms, and chat.
