Real-world, practical education for fraternal fundraisers

Advance is a unique opportunity for fraternal fundraisers to learn, connect and reflect on their work and goals. This program successfully provides dynamic sessions rooted in sharing, small group discussion and networking connections within the industry.

Advance offers something for everyone working in or supporting fraternal fundraising. New and mid-career professionals benefit the most. This program centers around two tracks: Annual Giving and Road Warriors.


Both tracks heavily focus on tactics, innovations and real-world experiences. Sessions are hosted exclusively over Zoom. Participants take part in dynamic sessions rooted in sharing, small group discussion and networking connections within the fraternal fundraising industry.


The Annual Giving track focuses on annual funds, campaigns, programs and communications. Road Warriors will discuss development, major gifts and face-to-face fundraising. New to Advance or the industry? The program includes an optional Newcomer Orientation that covers basics of the fundraising cycle and development terminology.
