Remote / Virtual Fundraising Tips

Although we don’t recommend meeting people in person given the risks of COVID-19 transmission, there are still some ways to make your solicitation more effective. Here are some ideas:

time piece

Schedule a time in advance that you and the donor are both available for a good period of time so the solicitation will not be rushed. You should ask for a time when the donor is less likely to be interrupted

check mark

Make sure you have good lighting and sound on your end and that you are making the solicitation from somewhere you will be less likely to be interrupted.


If possible, use a teleconferencing service to solicit gifts so that you can make a more personal connection. Google Meet, Zoom, Skype, and several other services offer free accounts.

talk by phone

If you solicit gifts by phone, make sure you wait until the donor is done  speaking. Without visual clues, it can be difficult to tell if the person on the other end of the line has completed their thought

speech bubble

Follow up with each donor to build a stronger personal connection. Reaching out via email, phone or text can go a long way to creating a lasting commitment.

calendar invite

Make it simple for the donor by sending them a calendar invite with a link to your video meeting, so they have a reminder and all of the information is in one place.
