Latest News and Updates
Invest in yourself and your career by attending the 2022 Annual Conference “The Future of Fundraising.” Mark your calendar to join your colleagues for an in-person reception June 8 and a virtual educational conference June 9-10.
The Annual Conference has been a key part of my growth personally and professionally. From what I’ve heard, the same is true for many of you. How many people “stumble” into fundraising and subsequently “fall out” because they never knew that there was an entire network of people to support them, help them grow, and compare gala battle scars with? As professionals who are engaged in changing the hearts and minds of others, we identify and overcome objections of would-be supporters so it’s easy for them to say YES. I’ll start with some objections that I have had to work through (a few times) before saying “YES, I will present.”
We have to do things in a different way if we want to improve our sector. If we want fundraising to be more grounded in social justice and DEIA values, we can’t continue how things have always been done. We have to chart our own new way. (And we need to have some fun doing it!)
With the new year comes new opportunities to work together to enrich our fundraising community.
The video recording for National Philanthropy Day 2021 is available now!
