Virtual Fundraising Terminology

Virtual fundraising: The process of sharing real activities and events online to encourage donations, rather than people gathering in one place.

Virtual event: A specific event that participants can take part in at whenever and wherever they are. All activity will be logged and displayed online.

Virtual challenge: A challenge that participants in an event set to raise money for the charity they are supporting. (More here.)

Livestreaming: The broadcasting of live video to an audience over the internet.

Facebook Live: A feature of the Facebook social network that uses the camera on a computer or mobile device to broadcast real-time video to Facebook. With Give as you Live Donate this can be linked up to your supporter’s fundraising page, so that the live video will play next to their donate button.

Gaming to Fundraise: Livestreaming of computer gaming to raise money for your charity.

Twitch: A live streaming platform for gamers. With Give as you Live Donate this can be linked up to your supporter’s fundraising page, so that the live video will play next to their donate button.

Zoom: A video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats – and it lets you record those sessions to view later.

Strava: A fitness tracking application which allows fundraisers to track their miles, steps, routes and more when they walk, run, cycle or take part in other fitness activies. With Give as you Live Donate this can be linked up to your supporter’s fundraising page, so that live Strava updates will show on their fundraising page. More here.
