Send your fundraising event to school!

Join us and you'll learn strategy, gain best practices and develop a plan to take your fundraising event to new heights.

This three-day conference at the The Kennedy School is a chance to hit the pause button on your event cycle and look at how you can create a bigger impact with your fundraising events. We will spend the first day learning theory and best practices. Day two will be the chance to learn specifics about sponsorship, donor cultivation, and programming. And day three is your chance to go behind the scenes, learn best practice logistics and create your plan for next steps that will put you on a path to event success.

  • The psychology of giving 
  • How to inspire audiences

Imagine the fun you will have at the Kennedy School, a 1911 building that was lauded by Ladies' Home Journal for its innovative one-story architecture, back in the day. Today, visitors stay overnight in classrooms-turned-guestrooms (complete with original chalkboards), have a bite to eat in the old cafeteria (now our Courtyard Restaurant) and grab a drink in either the Honors Bar or the Detention bar, depending on your mood. And that's just the beginning.
