District 7780 Rotarians met recently (by Zoom, naturally!) to talk about fundraising options in the age of COVID.  Generally speaking, the group agreed that:
 
  • Any fundraising project can be done virtually or with social distancing – it just takes creativity and maybe some downsizing. 
  • Good givers will continue to give, even in the tough times.
  • A club should think about its traditional sponsors.  If they are a restaurant or other establishment hard-hit by COVID, this is not the time to approach them.  If they are an insurance agency or utility or other organization that has not been hard-hit, by all means reach out to them.
  • It’s critical to advertise, advertise, advertise events and activities on social media and wherever possible.  People are feeling cooped up and are looking for fun things to do.
Clubs in District 7780 are currently planning exciting fundraisers
