Niagara Region & Niagara College host digital fundraising webinar


As health and social service agencies move forward, it’s necessary to capitalize on digital fundraising strategies. Niagara’s Community Recovery Planning Table in partnership with Niagara College is hosting “Digital Fundraising and Donor Stewardship in the Time of COVID-19,” a live webinar open to all local organizations on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 from 11 a.m. to 12 noon.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us all to scramble to put everything online – from classes and team meetings, to medical appointments. For health care and social service agencies, this also meant the cancelling of in-person fundraising events, and a reduction of fundraising-related revenue typically relied on to sustain operations. Many have sought ways to pivot to digital fundraising in this time of great change.

In Niagara, the pandemic has also reminded us of the kindness and generosity of those living in our community. Whether it is the donation of 5 million non-medical masks to community agencies, or grocery giveaways from anonymous donors – we can be proud of our collective efforts to rally behind those most vulnerable.

As health and social service agencies move forward, it will become increasingly necessary to capitalize on digital fundraising strategies and low-cost tools, as well as sustain these positive relationships with new donors.
