Hybrid Events: Reconnect in 2021

News - Fundraising Tips

Supercharge your post lockdown events!

Are you apprehensive about your special events this year? Well, you're not alone. Across the sector, charities have been racking their brains to figure out how to host their big events in 2021. From Gala Dinners to Carol Concerts, many feel that they have to choose between hosting an in-person event or going fully virtual.

But what if you could have the best of both worlds? Hybrid Events combine fundraising in a physical venue, with live and interactive audiences online. Charities like BBC Children in Need have been running hybrid events for years; hosting live audiences whilst televising their fundraising campaigns across the country, but they also work well as smaller, more intimate events.

TapSimple’s free to use platform is giving charities of all sizes the chance to host their own hybrid fundraising events this year - making sure that your charity can reach wider audiences and collect more donations than ever!
