Virtual Gala Events

“Differing from in-person, a virtual gala allows supporters to watch, participate, and donate from the comfort of their own homes.”

VIRTUAL GALA EVENTS
OVERVIEW

Whether it’s a live online auction or a pre-recorded live stream, virtual galas are proving to be very successful as many exceed previous years’ proceeds.

A virtual gala run-of-show features a similar layout to a live gala, including performances, guest speakers, an inspirational video, and a clear call to action. Compared to a live event, virtual galas are short and sweet, ranging between 60-90 minutes in order to keep the audience’s attention.

TESTIMONIALS FROM
VIRTUAL GALA EVENTS

“We recently worked with Givergy on a virtual silent auction to support an event we had pivoted. Integrating Givergy into this event was seamless.”

Special Events Manager, NSPCC

Givergy Virtual was easy to use and made our virtual gala and auction enjoyable for participants. It made up for not being able to have an in person gala, but still gave guests that feel as many parts of the virtual event were live streamed to guests in their homes. We received so much positive feedback from our attendees.”

Executive Director - Walkerton

“The team make everything really easy for you so we absolutely recommend Givergy for any sized fundraising event whether it’s virtual or live.”

VIRTUAL GALA EVENTS FAQs

Take a look at our virtual best practices here. Traditional in-person galas typically last 4 or 5 hours. Virtual galas should last between 30 and 45 minutes – every second counts!

While virtual galas offer more options when it comes to timing, it’s important to be mindful of your event’s time – avoid dinner time, children’s bed-times, etc. Our expert team would be happy to advise you in selecting a time for your event.
