Live Stream:  How to Grow Your Audience and Increase Donor Engagement with Virtual Events

“Does our nonprofit need to add digital or virtual aspects to expand our fundraising efforts?” 

The short answer is, yes! 

As digital fundraising trends change, nonprofits need to adapt and learn what tools are important for their fundraising success. Using virtual fundraising tools empowers you to shift your demographic and grow your audience. 



How can Live Stream Grow Your Audience? 

It is difficult to overstate the power of virtual fundraising. It reaches wider audiences, generates excitement, and can bring your supporters together from all over the world.  For example, more than 63% of people aged 18-34 watch live-streaming content regularly. Incorporating live stream with your in-person fundraising events or auctions enables you to reach new demographics of donors from across the globe! 


How Live Stream Increases Donor Engagement 

The benefits of live streaming don’t end with audience growth. It also helps you increase engagement with your donors. Live streaming allows you to chat with donors and registrants, answer any of their questions in real-time and see how people react to your event as it occurs. Studies have shown that 67% of audiences who watched a live stream purchased a ticket to a similar event the next time it occurred. Audiences enjoy live stream events that are interactive and engaging. By broadcasting your fundraiser, your donors will be able to experience the event anytime, anywhere.



As technology progresses, so should your fundraising efforts. That is why FrontStream is releasing live stream! We are excited to announce this new feature that you will be able to incorporate with your next fundraising campaign or auction
