“Walk for Envision”
Restrictions Related to COVID-19 Behind Decision to Cancel Fundraiser
Like so many other nonprofits this year, Envision was forced to make the difficult decision to cancel a key fundraising event. “Walk for Envision – Go the Extra Mile” was scheduled for October 21st at Winton Woods, but state-mandated restrictions on social gatherings made it impossible to move forward.
“Virtually all charity walk events were cancelled in 2020, so we’re certainly not alone in feeling the pain. Still, it’s a tough pill to swallow when you’re counting on that revenue stream to fund key program needs,” said Susan Hosler, Envision’s Director of Development & Marketing.
Last year was the official launch of Envision’s walk event. Turnout was strong and net revenue from corporate sponsorships, peer-to-peer fundraising, and the sale of raffle tickets exceeded what was being raised by previous fundraisers.
“We had – and still have – very high hopes for our ‘Walk for Envision’ event. It’s a good fit for our agency and one that we hope can raise critical funds and be a fun annual gathering of the families we serve now and in the past,” said Susan.
