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!

In August of 2021, SEE held its annual Children’s Sight Week event, during which our Santa Barbara Vision Care clinics put a priority on the screening and treatment of the children in our community, resulting in 64 eye screenings and 32 comprehensive eye exams for the young patients.Among the children who received care was six-year-old Olivia, who dreams of being an art teacher one day. A few years ago when she was just three-years-old, Olivia put on her grandma’s glasses to “play teacher” with her cousin. After spending some time wearing the glasses, she told her family that they actually helped her to see better. Her parents then took her to a SEE clinic for a screening, only to discover that she needed glasses of her own. Now, three years later, she’s back again for another pair.
