About the Conference

Make a New Year’s Resolution now to attend the Association of Fundraising Professionals Massachusetts Chapter’s Fundraising Week in Boston. 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.  
• More than 20 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!
