Don’t Let Tech-phobia Block School Fundraising

 Here are the top 3 most common technology questions we get...

Don't Let Technology Prevent You from Fundraising

  • Top Question 1: What exactly is a live stream and how does it work?
    Much like TV broadcasting, live stream technology allows you create and share video or go LIVE in real-time. Think of it as your own TV show production! It can be as simple as setting up a video link for donors to simply view a completely pre-recorded broadcast or a fully produced LIVE virtual fundraising event - including the mastering of video collateral, switching audio and video feeds, and the full build and engineering of your completed virtual program.
  • Top Question 2: What exactly is a live stream and how does it work?
    You have options. To keep it simple, live stream directly to a free platform such as Youtube Live, Facebook Live or Vimeo and integrate calls to action sending folks to your website or current donation page. To integrate one-device viewing and mobile giving/bidding directly into the stream, use a mobile bidding software such as (or similar) to stream the event. Our data suggests this method drives higher giving conversions but both methods work.
  • Top Question 3: Does my planning team need tech experience to pull this off?
    NO. In fact, we recommend using only seasoned professionals to set up, build and manage the live stream freeing up your time to focus on messaging, marketing and mission! Audio visual professionals ensure the live stream URLs are initialized properly and that the production value and quality of your stream remain top notch.
