On May 9, FundRaising Success is hosting its first-ever face-to-face event: the Engage Conference. Engage is the only case-study-focused fundraising conference focusing on the keys to success from organizations that have successfully made the leap from just-getting-by nonprofits to powerhouse organizations. Leading up to Engage, we will be highlighting content from the participating organizations and speakers that we’ve published over the years.
Sometimes the best fundraising ideas come from lively discussions between fundraising pros. At our Third Annual Virtual Conference & Expo this past October, members of our Editorial Advisory Board discussed the issues they see as the most pressing for fundraisers in 2013 in the closing session.
For our January cover story this year, “Sleepless in 2013,” we transcribed that closing session with Dane Grams, national director of direct response at Amnesty International USA; fundraising consultant Jo Sullivan; Jeff Jowdy, founder and presider of Lighthouse Counsel; Marc Pitman, founder of FundraisingCoach.com; and Tom Harrison, CEO of Russ Reid — all of whom will be presenting or leading roundtables at Engage — as well as fellow Editorial Advisory Board member Christina Johns, director of new media at the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
