Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern Male is Struggling, Why It Matters, and What to Do About It
Richard V. Reeves, Senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of Dream Hoarders & Of Boys and Men | Meet the presenter

What is happening with so many of our boys and men? Economists lament inexplicable drops in male labor force participation. Public health officials point to disproportionately male "deaths of despair" from suicide or overdose. Parents see their sons struggling and worry what it means for their future. In a compelling presentation, Richard provides a groundbreaking, personal and engaging diagnosis of the contemporary male malaise that is pro-equality as well as pro-male. As he says: "We can hold two thoughts in our head at once. We can be passionate about women's rights and compassionate toward vulnerable boys and men." Drawing on years of deep research as well as his personal experience as a father of three sons, Reeves offers a compelling diagnosis of the problems of boys and men-and a bold set of solutions.

Building a Brand That Matters
R. Ethan Braden, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Purdue University and Purdue Global | Meet the presenter

Great brands don’t just happen. Rather, they are intentionally and purposefully built over time on certain bedrocks, including a great story and position. And how well a brand is delivered externally depends on how well it is understood internally. As a member of Beta Theta Pi, former staffer, and dedicated volunteer, Ethan has developed a flourishing marketing expertise and career with a rare combination of leadership roles across critical and complex industries: the Federal Government, healthcare, consulting, public higher education, and non-profit. He has demonstrated that the keys to building remarkable brands transcend sectors, demographics, and unmet needs. Join us as he shares stories, lessons, and best practices from remarkable brands that have enchanted audiences and changed lives, leaving you inspired and better equipped to ensure your brand truly matters.

Maximize Your Video Platform to Engage with Donors
Raenee Patterson, Assistant Director of Development, Delta Zeta Foundation

Most of our organizations now utilize some sort of video platform to communicate with our donors. But how can we fully utilize the platform we are paying for outside of general thank you videos? During this session, you will hear how the Delta Zeta Foundation has incorporated personalized and non-personalized video into their overall foundation communication strategy. Learn how to use video during your Day of Giving, in your everyday stewardship efforts, and to keep donors up to date on Foundation activities. Participants will leave with new, exciting ideas on how to use video to engage and interact with their donor base.
How the Ultra Wealthy Give Away their Money
Matthew Green, Senior Vice President, Private Wealth Advisor, UBS Private Wealth Management

No one loves rejection.

Unfortunately, in today’s hyper crowded non-profit marketplace, it’s harder than ever to get major donors to engage with your mission.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

For more than 25 years, Matt Green has been advising the ultra-wealthy and large charitable organizations. He’s figure out why these two groups struggle to communicate with one another.

In this engaging talk, Matt will help your team understand the most prevalent myths about charitable giving and the super rich.
Fundraising Strategies for Preservation Initiatives
Beth Burkes, Chief Development Officer, Tri Delta; Ryan Collett, Chief Development Officer, Pi Kappa Alpha Foundation; Kristen Gwinn-Becker, Ph.D, Founder & CEO at HistoryIT

Pi Kappa Alpha and Tri Delta are committed to preserving their histories to ensure they’re available now and in the future. Through a partnership with HistoryIT, the organizations have collectively digitally preserved over 2.5 million assets and made them available through their respective digital museums. 

In this panel discussion, Ryan Collett, Pi Kappa Alpha Foundation’s Chief Development Officer, and Beth Burkes, Tri Delta Foundation’s Chief Development Officer, will share their unique approaches to fundraising for preservation. 

Pi Kappa Alpha dedicated their 2022 Founders Day of Giving campaign to preservation and saw a 790% increase in contributions. PIKE then expanded fundraising to include saving the history of their chapters. Their 2023 Founders Day of Giving kicked off the new effort, which engages all members and provides the opportunity to donate directly to the preservation of each chapter’s history.

Tri Delta has made the commitment to preserve the entirety of their archives. To support this, the Foundation has strategically sought out donors to fund specific collections or topics of interest. This has required careful consideration of which potential donors would best align with various themes in the Fraternity’s archives.  

Session attendees will also hear from Kristen Gwinn-Becker, PhD, HistoryIT’s Founder and CEO. Kristen will share strategies for curating fundraising opportunities specific to your organization’s archival materials. She will also discuss the process of supporting Pi Kappa Alpha and Tri Delta’s fundraising efforts from a digital preservation partner perspective.
Prospect Like a Pro: Using Data-Driven Insights for Successful Major Gift Fundraising
Alicia Lifrak, Executive Vice President, Pursuant | Giving DNA

As campus Greek organizations strive to secure major gifts from alumni, parents, and donors, the importance of data-driven fundraising strategies cannot be overemphasized. By leveraging data, organizations can identify high-potential prospects, personalize fundraising messages, and measure the impact of their outreach efforts.

This session will explore how campus Greek organizations can harness the power of data to drive efficiencies in prospecting, soliciting, and obtaining major gifts. We will discuss the various sources of data that organizations can tap into, including alumni databases, social media, and donor management systems. We will also share best practices for data analysis and interpretation, such as segmentation, modeling, and predictive analytics.

The session will feature examples of successful fundraising campaigns that have utilized data-driven strategies to achieve their goals. Attendees will learn about the tools and technologies available to support data-driven fundraising, as well as the key performance indicators that can be used to measure success.

Coaching Your Team – Coaching Volunteers to Successful Fundraising

This session will focus on scalable tactics for volunteer fundraising teams of all sizes through the philosophy of coaching. We will review coaching principles from some of the great coaches throughout history and apply these lessons to tangible practices with your volunteers. 
Blended Gifts: The Three-Legged Stool of Fundraising Success
Leslie Martin, Executive Director, Delta Gamma Foundation

A well-rounded fundraising program must consist of annual, major and planned gifts. They are the three legs of a well-balanced stool; if we take one away, results become shaky. Blended gifts are not only the ultimate vehicle for achieving this balance but also offer donors meaningful impact today and in the future. Learn how to leverage blended gifts to achieve greater fundraising success.
Optimize Your Giving Day: Leverage Challenges to Grow Your Major Gift Program and Raise Unrestricted Dollars
Emily Karcher, Development and Engagement Manager & Jill Carrel, Director of Advancement, Pi Beta Phi Foundation

Giving challenges during your annual day of giving can be an exciting opportunity to include major donors and volunteers and generate enthusiasm and participation among chapters, clubs, and your general membership. Without a well-defined major gift strategy, however, including everyone and every gift can become cumbersome to execute and confusing for your donors. This session will highlight how your organization can streamline its efforts to laser focus on unrestricted giving, strengthen your challenge gift strategy, and use your giving day to grow your major gift pipeline.
Tailoring the Target: Redefining Fundraising Success through Data-Driven Goal Setting and KPI Development

Strengths-Based Teams Drive Engagement, Productivity and Wellbeing
Ashley VanDerwark, Executive Director, Foundation for Fraternal Excellence

Overwhelmed with turnover, underperformance or challenging team dynamics? Spending more time putting out fires than driving next level growth? You're not alone - and this session may be for you. 

Did you know... organizations are failing to create workplaces of high engagement and high wellbeing with only 36% of U.S. workers reporting being engaged at work? Furthermore, managers - through their strengths, their own engagement and how they work with their team every day - account for 70% of the variance in team engagement. 

Join us for a discussion about the four things that highly productive teams have in common and get an insider look at Gallup research which finds that people who know and use their talents and strengths are more engaged at work, more productive in their role, and happier and healthier. 

We'll also spend time peer-to-peer learning as we crowdsource ideas/strategies to increase your team's engagement and improve your staff retention.
Thriving Brand, Shared Vision: How to Leverage a Shared Brand for Greater Support
Jen Magro Algarotti, Director of Strategic Communications & Natalie Knapp, Assistant Director of Communications and Creative Strategies, Delta Gamma Foundation; Melissa Hammer, Associate Director of Communications, Kappa Delta

Our organizations face many challenges when communicating our case for support; getting members to understand the importance of their support; fitting in many different programs and ideas; communicating to varied and diverse audiences; distinguishing between Foundation and Fraternity initiatives; and much more. When separate entities have one brand and need to share common brand elements, the challenge can be even greater. But a shared brand can also lead to greater support and increased synergy when done strategically. As part of this session, we will examine how Delta Gamma Foundation and Kappa Delta Foundation share a brand with their Fraternity counterparts, all while remaining distinct philanthropic organizations with successful fundraising outcomes within shared communication outlets. A variety of topics will be covered, including the development of a brand strategy, crafting unique content using shared brand messaging, the use of logos and graphic elements, a visual hierarchy system, social media accounts, and website presence. We will leave time for Q&A and best-practice sharing. 
How Leading With Heart Leveled Up Practices to Sustain Alpha Phi Foundation's Success
Kelly Wesley Taylor, Co-Founder, Trek Advancement; Rebecca Zanatta, Chair, Board of Directors, Alpha Phi Foundation

Campaign success is about more than just the dollars raised, it's also about elevating the entirety of the organization for sustainable success long after the campaign celebration. As Alpha Phi Foundation celebrates the impact of their $43 million Leading With Heart comprehensive campaign, learn how they leveled up their development practices in the following areas:

- Benchmarking and evaluating fundraising success
- Team development and transitions
- Collegiate giving and giving through chapters
- Blended asks
- Data driven decision making
- Communicating the call to action in a noisy, fragmented environment

Both Kelly and Rebecca are fundraising consultants working with a variety of clients across the United States.

It's Not You, It’s Your Data Silos

Collaboration for the Cause: Promoting Scholarship Applications
Melissa Hammer, Associate Director of Communications & Heather Matthews, Director of Marketing and Communications, Kappa Delta Foundation

Scholarships are one of the most important ways our foundations offer support to members. It would seem that “free money” would be easy enough to get members to apply for, yet every year our organizations struggle to get the applications we need to award the scholarships dollars we have. This session will be part case study and part working session. In small groups, we'll attempt to develop skeleton communications plan your foundation can use to collaborate with the sorority/fraternity to promote scholarship applications – this can even be scaled up for other types of applications: internships, leadership conferences and more! Come prepared to discuss roadblocks that have held you back in the past and to brainstorm ideas with your peers to garner future success. If we work quickly, you'll leave with a workable communications plan where all you need to do is create content specific to your organization.

Engaging Gen Z as Young Alumni
Vincent Russo, Senior Director of Advancement and Chelsea Sheridan, Director of Advancement, Delta Tau Delta Foundation

How many times have you seen a member get to the end of their undergraduate experience only to view it as the end of their experience as a member of their fraternal organization? What if there was a way to provide meaningful avenues for our upperclassmen to feel engaged with our organizations before they even graduate? This program will dive into some of those ideas and more, looking at what is important to Gen Z and how to capture it through our efforts to engage them as a generation of passionate soon-to-be young professionals who are looking to impact societal change on a large scale.
