The largest gathering of nonprofits in our region is back!
|Join us for the What IF Conference on October 26th & 28th for two mornings of dynamic programming. We’ll be virtual this year because no pandemic will stop us from bringing together the smartest, most passionate advocates with our region’s most progressive and supportive funders.|
Keynote speaker Lynn Malzone Ierardi is a national leader in charitable gift planning and author of Storytelling: The Secret Sauce of Fundraising Success. Lynn will open What IF 2021 on Tuesday morning and on Thursday will present her fundraising workshop that dives deep into the art of telling your story with the goal of making the biggest impact.
Marisa DeSalles, an emerging thought leader at the intersection of fundraising, diversity, and technology, will open our Thursday session with a panel discussion, Fostering a Sense of Abundance for Nonprofits. Here we will explore how organizations can change their mindsets around resources and scarcity and start acting collectively to nurture growth and opportunity.
We will also feature new and tried-and-true presenters on subjects ranging from telling your story with data to cultural intelligence, from community-centric fundraising to online auctions, and so much more.
Register today so you can join in the collective power of our nonprofit sector.
