Fundraising and Development for Nonprofits has become one of the premier conferences for nonprofits in the Midwest. During its 19 years of existence, the conference has attracted more than 1,400 individuals representing 950 different nonprofit organizations.
Through 4 general and 17 elective sessions presented by experienced faculty, the conference offers you: a fresh outlook on philanthropy; the philosophy, fundamentals, and framework of good, solid development; individual consultations with faculty; realities of attracting corporate and foundation support; using social media to expand your reach; effective techniques on how to develop relationships leading to gifts, making meaningful asks, working with boards, and showing gratitude; and many others.
Anyone contributing to the operations of a nonprofit organization will benefit from this program. Whether your role is to increase gifts to the annual fund or to search for those elusive major gift donors, you will walk away from this conference with usable techniques that will return your investment in the program many times over!
