The Power of Faith in Fundraising
Every organization has donors who are motivated by faith. This session is for anyone who wants to learn what’s working in faith-based organizations, and how to apply it to your organization.

Direct Marketing 101

This is a full day workshop to introduce – or re-introduce! – you to the new fundamentals of direct response fundraising and marketing and how it fits into your fundraising toolbox.

Fundraising 101

No matter what role you play in your organization’s fundraising department, it is important to understand the big picture. In this session, participants will be introduced to broad fundraising principles that should inform every program and specific strategies to raise more money.

Dancing with Strangers | Think on Your Feet

Spend a day with Tony Myers and Bernard Ross…and you will be ready to take on the world! You will hear from both Tony and Bernard as they share their insights and experiences on fundraising.

Lunch and refreshment breaks are included in the
