Fundraising Day 2016: A Full Day of Networking, Education and Fun!
April 12, 2016
By Mila Khan
As the largest one-day conference for fundraisers in Canada, brought to you by the largest chapter of AFP worldwide, Fundraising Day 2016 is the most important one day of networking and education you’ll have this year.
Diversity, inclusion, collaboration and innovation are among the principles that have guided our educational program for this year.
Our special guest plenary speaker, Vu Le, is known by fundraisers around the world for his candid, intelligent and hilarious blog, nonprofitwithballs.com, in addition to his work as executive director of Rainier Valley Corps, a Seattle-based organization cultivating leaders of colour to strengthen organizations working within diverse communities.
This year, the 24 sessions we have carefully tailored for you dive not only into the evolution of the classic fundraising programs that drive revenue – major gifts, planned giving and direct mail – but also the innovations in venture philanthropy, government relations and communications that are dramatically transforming the environment we all work in.
Registration for Fundraising Day 2016 is now open with great early-bird rates, so register as soon as possible.
The AFP Greater Toronto Chapter also offers exceptional bursary opportunities to make professional development available to all. But please hurry, as the bursary deadline of April 21 is fast approaching!
Above all, what makes Fundraising Day truly special are the incredible professionals like you who join us each year, so that we work collaboratively as a sector to illuminate the way forward to serve all of our communities.
I look forward to seeing you for an inspiring day of learning and networking!
Mila Khan is the Chair, Fundraising Day 2016.
