What Attendees Said about This Nonprofit Webinar:

“I am new to Charity How To and I think it is a great resource for businesses! Especially since we all have moved to connect and engage with our audiences virtually! I will continue to stay connected. Thank you!” 

Heaven Rendon, Liberty Partnership Kino Neighborhoods Council

“I had zero knowledge of how to run a virtual fundraiser.  This webinar provided me with much information to give me a solid basis of knowledge to move forward.  Thank you!”

Nancy Jernigan, Partners in Sustainable Development International (PSDI)

“This webinar was one of the most helpful I have attended on virtual event planning. It was engaging, informative, and I was actually able to take practical skills and templates as opposed to "ideas" home with me. That's tough to accomplish even in an in-person setting. Thank you!”

Nora Murray, NEW MEMPHIS

“The information shared in this presentation was extremely helpful and valuable, especially during this time when in-person events aren't possible. Dana  was very knowledgeable and presented the information in a very engaging manner as well.”  

Aisha Bussey, Capital Good Fund

“Informative and engaging webinar for navigating the new territory of digital events. Gave insights on event structure options as well as reviewed digital resources to support the event.”  

Andrea Claypoole, De Paul Treatment Centers

“Presenter was engaging, light-hearted, well-versed, and kept the pace moving without rushing.  The almost 90  minutes went by quickly and the "phased" structure worked well!”

Maria Wherley, Pennsylvania Downtown Center  

“This is genuinely the best webinar I've come across talking about virtual events, especially at large scale.”  

Luis Barcelo, Teen Lifeline

“This webinar had really exciting practical applications for creating a virtual event with the added bonus of real life sources.”  

Angela Satcher, NECHAMA - Jewish Response to Disaster

“The webinar was quite informative.  I loved Dana's expertise, passion and resources provided.  Absolutely AWESOME!!  I have participated in several webinars about transitioning to a virtual event.  This was by far the BEST ONE.   Eternally grateful for the wisdom that was shared.”

Donna Tate, Methodist Home for Children

“My organization's one and only annual event--celebrating it's 10th anniversary next year--is a community gathering featuring an 20-24  presentations on a variety of topics from people who live and work in our city.  Since the current climate won't allow large-scale public gatherings, we decided to do a virtual series of 10 speakers/experiences leading up to a live event in late 2021 (we hope).  We've never hosted a virtual event before, and this webinar was a treasure trove of helpful information.”  

Marcia Tabenken

“I learned a lot today and it was well worth my time and the cost.  Presenter was excellent at conveying the information and provided lots of resources to be used afterwards.  Highly recommend”

Tanya Carlyle, The Megan House
