Fresh, Innovative Ideas on Fundraising

Hey frogloop readers: Next week is one of the Care2 Team's favorite fundraising conferences: the DMA Nonprofit Federation's Washington Nonprofit Conference, and we hope to see many of you there! If you're not sure whether to attend, here are some great reasons to do so, from the DMA's Toni Cumberbatch:

Need fresh, innovative ideas to optimize your fundraising strategies? Then, make your way to the 2013 Washington Nonprofit Conference. Here are just a few of the benefits of attending:

  • You’ll strengthen (and broaden) your knowledge of direct response fundraising. With 25 sessions to choose from, led by experts in nonprofit and commercial marketing, you’ll take away immediately actionable learnings.
  • You’ll become more proficient in best practices in state-of–the-art fundraising. The fundraising gurus from HRC, Operation Smile, ASPCA, NAACP, St. Jude, and many others will share their knowledge.
  • You’ll make valuable connections. From power networking events to a reception focused on critical legislative and regulatory issues affecting nonprofits … from the vendor hall to the mentoring opportunities … from the awards lunch to a small dinner, you’ll meet accomplished fundraisers with unique skills and experiences to share—a collaborative network you can tap long after the conference.
  • You’ll help your company stay current. Many of the sessions will focus on interactive fundraising from small nonprofits, as well as large national nonprofits — and from the smartest and most creative minds in the industry.
  • You can share what you learn after the conference. Combining your own notes and ideas with the session handouts provided by DMANF, you’ll have plenty of inspiration and information to share with your team when you return.
  • The conference will help you earn your CFRE. Full participation in the conference is applicable for 7 continuing education points.
  • The conference costs may be tax deductible. This conference is a continuing education expense taken to maintain and improve your professional skills, so the registration fees, travel, meals and lodging may be tax deductible.

So what are you waiting for? Register now for this insightful and engaging event. It’s a can’t miss!

Upcoming Conference Roundup (February - March 2012)


With the new year in full swing, we're looking forward to all the great events that are coming up this year by refreshing our own 2012 Conferences calendar. 

Here you'll find a list of upcoming events that are sure to be buzzing with cause-minded folks. And wherever there's a cause to be championed, you'll find the Care2 Team -- this month delivering a trifecta of tips and tactics, with three of our Nonprofit Services directors presenting at three different conferences on three different topics over the next three weeks:

-Eric Rardin will be talking about Cause Marketing & High Level Engagement: How Brands Can Leverage Social Networks and Achieve High Level Engagement in Las Vegas on February 9th.

-Ryann Miller--back from maternity leave and now quickly back in the speaking circuit--will talk about The Basics of Growing Your List in Toronto on February 21st. (And back by popular demand, Ryann will also be speaking at Canada's Digital Leap in May).

-Dane Grams will be making his Care2 speaking debut at the DMA Washington Nonprofit Conference, on a panel called Follow that Donor! How to Succeed with Digitally-Driven, Multi-Channel Donor Stewardship on March 1st.

We're also throwing a party at one of our favorite "Unconferences," New Organizing Institute's 2012 RootsCamp. So if you're in DC, don't miss it (the conference, or the party...but especially the party).

Will you be attending any of these events? Come and participate in our speaking sessions, and feel free to connect with our team at (or after) these events if you'd like slides (or video, when available) of the session.
