What types of virtual or in-person events can Give Lively products be used for?

Give Lively products, especially those in the Event Fundraising solution, can be used with a wide range of virtual and in-person events, from galas, art exhibits, concerts, -athons, fun runs, walks and conferences to virtual fundraisers, performances, volunteer days and more.

Event Ticketing

Event Ticketing, our user-friendly pages for event ticket and sponsorship sales, can be used to sell general admission, real and virtual tables, VIP tickets, sponsorships, complimentary/discounted entry and more, with room for donations too.

Notably, an Event Ticketing page includes space for an in-person location and/or a virtual/livestreamed event link (which can be public or private).

For examples of how member nonprofits have used Event Ticketing, see our members in action.

Live Display

Live Display (currently in open beta) is designed to track and present contributions in nearly real time, especially at fundraising events.

At in-person events, with a projector screen, make Live Display highly visible for all attendees to drive a little friendly competition between donors. 

During virtual events, use screen-sharing functionality to show Live Display or have it positioned near the presenter during a livestream.


Text-to-Donate is our easy, mobile-first method for capturing contributions when donors are on the go. It can be used anytime, anywhere in the U.S., making it perfect for both in-person and virtual events.

For virtual fundraising events, Text-to-Donate makes it possible for donors to give anywhere the video is seen, as long as viewers are reminded of the text code and number.
