Ten Incredible Virtual Fundraising Ideas

During COVID-19, people turned to Zoom and livestreaming platforms to embarrass themselves for a good cause. They performed absurd acts in the name of kindness. They sang and they danced as though the screen protected them from the judgment of others. It did not, but they needn’t know that.

With virtual fundraising looking to become a huge part of the post-COVID-19 landscape, we thought it best to start with some brilliant virtual fundraising ideas.

1. The first idea is a virtual truth or dare game where participants choose a dare and donate to charity.

2. The second idea is hosting a virtual auction where unusual items or experiences can be sold, such as a 1:1 lesson in something you can do well.

3. The third idea is a virtual bingo night, where participants can donate to buy bingo cards.

4. The fourth idea is virtual karaoke, which can be held on a dedicated app or through Zoom, and participants can donate to sing a song of their choice.

5. The fifth idea is a virtual dance party where participants can donate to a charity of their choice.

6. The sixth idea is hosting a virtual gig with local artists performing in-person and livestreamed for virtual viewers.

8. The eighth idea is hosting a virtual trivia night, where participants can donate to compete for prizes.

9. The ninth idea is a virtual cooking class, where participants can donate to learn to cook a new dish.

10. Finally, the tenth idea is a virtual talent show, where participants can donate to showcase their talents, with judges and prizes for the winners.
