Virtual fundraisers certainly present a number of logistical and technical challenges, and we are all missing the face-to-face community and connection building that were so important to in-person fundraisers. However, it remains critical that we find ways to garner donor support for our causes amongst the many other competing charitable interests. 

The greatest resource to achieving this end is simple – each other. Our advice is to look to other nonprofits for new ideas and success stories of fundraising done right, even in our new virtual world. And don’t stop there – if you find yourself with a story or strategy of your own, share it with others!

“Now I feel calm. I am certain that my boy will be successful in school and also in life.” - Carmen, Nacor’s mother
In 2017, our SEE volunteer team met Nacor, a young boy born with cataracts in both eyes, in a rural town outside of Tarapoto, Peru, Nacor struggled to see anything more than a foot away. Without treatment, Nacor was at risk of permanent vision loss. His mother, Carmen, was desperate to get help for her son, but couldn’t afford the surgery he needed.
