WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The 2019 Advance program will benefit professionals who have a direct role in annual giving strategy or are traveling development staff. FFE Alliance Partners also attend Advance to help deliver programming and connect with fraternal foundations about services they provide to the industry.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Advance provides an informal and collaborative networking and learning setting. Attendees are surrounded by peers with similar roles and have the opportunity to discuss shared needs and experiences.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

New to the Advance program, attendees will choose from two separate job function-focused tracks: (1) annual giving strategy and its components, and (2) “face-to-face fundraising” strategies and techniques. A workbook is provided to guide the learning experience and serves as an effective takeaway for later use.
