"These Are Times That Try Men's Souls!"
Thomas Paine

The world has changed and we are forced to change with it! "In-person' events that were so commonplace are now fraught with extraordinary risk. The pandeminc demands we rethink all human gatherings, including fundraisers. "Pivoting To Virtual" is absolutely necessary. Fear not, it can be done; and, it can be very rewarding. 

Virtual events are usually much less expensive than in-person convenings, sparing the cost of space rental, meals, entertainment etc. Less overhead = larger net dollars raised.



These five non-profit organizations faced with pandemic restrictions changed their annual fundraising event to a virtual format. Combined we raised over $2,750,000.00

What Our Clients Say . . .

Jim Capraro was a wonderful addition to our first virtual event. I am not quite sure how I would have navigated the way without his guidance. He was extremely patient, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way! The moment we concluded our virtual program, I made sure to schedule him to consult for our next event.

From running the streaming service, designing our event landing page, and organizing our auction … Capraro Consulting helped us present an event that connected us to our supporters.

We have received so many wonderful compliments regarding the event from the video to the production and, most importantly, the demonstration of the work we have been doing for the athletes. Our focus on the mission of the organization and the athletes have received high praise from those who have seen many events.

Isn't the Annual Gala more than a fundraiser?



Yes, it's a social gathering where we celebrate our organization's "COMMUNITY".

Each year when we come together it feels like a reunion. We renew our bonds with each other and our commitment to our common mission. At a virtual event, "visiting" can be practiced, and camaraderie attained in the ONLINE Live Chat. The group conversation flows thoughout the whole span of the live event.

Witness just one small piece of the whole group chat that occurred during the Port Ministiries Fall Harvest of Hope Virtual Fundraiser Live Stream.
