How to Use Trivia or Surveys to Engage Donors During Your Livestream

Using trivia and survey questions during your livestream is a fun, easy way to engage your donors. This article will share information about the difference between trivia and survey questions, what sort of questions you can ask, and how you can use trivia and surveys to improve the effectiveness of your next fundraiser.

What’s the difference between trivia and survey questions?

While both trivia and surveys ask donors to answer questions, trivia questions have a correct answer (or answers) while survey questions do not.

Survey questions allow you to collect information from your audience and allow your donors to share their opinions and get to know one another!

Here’s an example:

Trivia: How many plants are currently recognized by NASA as being a part of our solar system?

a. 7

b. 8

c. 9

d. 11

Survey: When NASA downgraded Pluto to “dwarf planet” status, how did you feel?

a. Devastated, don’t downgrade Pluto!

b. Elated, Pluto was masquerading as a planet for far too long!

c. Indifferent, planets aren’t really my thing

d. Nervous. What could get downgraded next!

How Can I use Trivia and Surveys on my livestream event?

At in-person events, donors often spend time connecting, laughing, and getting to know one another. During virtual or hybrid events, trivia and survey questions provide a way for virtual donors to interact and be a part of something bigger than themselves. Having fun helps donors feel connected to the event and connected donors tend to give more!

Use trivia to:

  • Inform the audience about your cause
  • Provide fun entertainment
  • Run a contest with prizes 

Use surveys to:

  •  Let audience members tell you what to do next during an event
  • Determine which projects to fund first with the money raised
  • Help donors get to know each other and build camaraderie as a group

Require a donation or email address to answer questions


Why require information to answer questions?

  • A way to collect donor information
  • Boost amount raised by requiring a donation to participate
