Webinar: Engaging with funders during a crisis

Date: 26 May 2020

In this engaging session, fundraising experts from Wendy Brooks & Partners will share their insights and recent experiences with engaging with funders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, more than ever, the communities that we support need even more support. Funders know this and many have pivoted their funding to help bushfire affected communities and those impacted by COVID-19.

While your community organisation has been thrown unprecedented curve-balls, it is important that your fundraising strategy doesn’t fall to the way-side, and that you continue to engage with your funders (and new prospective funders) to keep powering your work.

Come along and hear about how best to:

  • Engage with existing funders in a way that allows them to understand what you need and how they can help;
  • Identify prospective funders that support your cause and learn how to position your organisation for help during a crisis;
  • Reassign funding if your organisation has needed to pivot its services because of the crisis;
  • Think outside the box when it comes to face to face campaigns and events;
  • Design your pitch so that it maximises impact during a virtual funder meeting.

Join the experts at Wendy Brooks & Partners to hear real-life experiences (including plenty of success stories) on approaching donors over the past few months.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
