Virtual Fundraising 101 with Grand River Hospital Foundation

Mia Huber

During an extraordinary year, our community has come together and unified in a single cause. To care for the safety and health of one another during this pandemic. We are very grateful for all the support in so many ways that Grand River has received because of our community. Because in our community the Care. Never. Stops.

This year, more than ever, we are looking to our community of leaders to donate support, skills, and passion in joining our cause! 

Although we are unable to come together for in-person events and fundraisers, there are still incredible opportunities to connect virtually. What's better than engaging and creating FUN (and funds) with your co-workers, family, and friends? 

Now before we get to the ideas.....

  • Get the Word Out. What's the biggest benefit to hosting a Virtual Fundraiser? Using all the tools and platforms at your disposal! Share on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn... any platform that connects you with your family, friends, and community.
