One of the best educational programs that I have attended in recent years sponsored by FFE. Workbooks were amazing and helpful now that I have returned to the office. Sessions were packed with usable nuggets. Networking was outstanding as always. Great job!

A focused educational experience for new to mid-career professionals

Formerly known as Greek Retreat, Advance gathers entry to mid-level professionals from fraternal foundations in an information setting to learn, plan, network, and exchange resources and best practices. The intentionally-designed curriculum provides comprehensive education and skill-building in 101- and 201-level sessions to accommodate varying levels of experience.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Advance gathers entry- to mid-level professionals who have a direct role in annual giving or (new in 2019) those who are traveling development staff.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

In this informal and collaborative setting, attendees are surrounded by peers with similar roles. They discuss shared challenges, opportunities and experiences. The curriculum provides comprehensive education and skill-building in 101- and 201-level sessions to accommodate varying levels of experience. A workbook guides the learning experience and is an effective takeaway.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Attendees choose from two separate job function-focused tracks: (1) annual giving strategy and its components, and (2) “face-to-face fundraising” strategies and techniques.
