About the Conference

This will not be simply Zoom meeting after Zoom meeting. 
  • We are investing in new technology to make possible the kinds of serendipitous and planned meet ups you enjoy at traditional in-person conferences. 
  • 40+ educational sessions will cover every aspect of fundraising: annual fund, planned giving, foundation and corporate fundraising, major gifts, capital campaigns, and more. All at an affordable price.
  • Sessions will be geared specifically for experienced professionals and for those new to the field.
  • Keynotes will not only inform. They will inspire.
Whether you work in healthcare, the arts, higher ed or human services, this new format will give you more know-how -– and more professional connections – than any other conference you have attended.
  • Let's put 2020 in the rear view mirror and make a plan to see each other in January 2021!
