There’s a reason that so many organizations have an annual gala: while it can be a bit of work, it also has huge pay offs when it’s done well. A trend we’ve seen in recent years is taking your gala virtual (which we lovingly call an Ungala) or even hybrid, which can make it less work and upfront cost.
Even before COVID hit, live streaming was increasing in popularity. It allows you to connect with your supporters in the moment in a way that feels authentic. It lets viewers interact through comments and participate in a conversation. That feeling of being with other people and doing something together is incredibly powerful.
There are plenty of options for live streaming: Facebook Live, Youtube, Zoom, or any of a number of custom software. Plan a livestream for the end of a fundraising campaign to gain excitement and to celebrate the end, or kick off the event with a live stream.
