  • Connecting research and trends in giving and grantmaking to the present and future work of nonprofit fundraisers.

2023 Nonprofit Fundraising Conference

Operation Abundance is the theme of this year’s Nonprofit Fundraising Conference. Abundance in fundraising can refer to monetary wealth, the committed, smart, and justice-seeking people in this field, or it can be about the power in community care when resources flow equitably, adequately, and need is eradicated.

It will take skill, collective action, guts, persistence, and imagination. Are you ready? Come and be abundant with us at the sixth annual Nonprofit Fundraising Conference!
