Run A Virtual Silent Auction Event

Running a Virtual Event

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has put many non-profits into a position of pushing their spring auction to the fall, cancelling it or being creative and running their gala completely online (often called a virtual event).

How do we raise money (and thrive) amid Coronavirus?

Planning Accordingly During an Unsure Spring Season

However, what pushed me over the edge was the path I was currently on – high blood pressure, […]
