Brilliant Presenters

We’ve put together a roster filled with the “who’s who” of marketing and fundraising to bring you tips, tricks and practical knowledge. You’ll hear from experts who’ve successfully implemented long-term, million-dollar campaigns at large foundations to short, emergency fund drives for local nonprofits.

Timely Topics

Times are changing — and you need to adapt. What’s helping, what’s hurting, and what to look out for. Our speakers will cover topics including:

  • Tips for Getting Larger, More Frequent Gifts in the Internet Age
  • Social Media: What’s Hot, What’s Not, Why You Need It and Some Don’t
  • The Art of Making “The Ask”
  • Storytelling and Starting the Conversation
  • How to Get Your Board on Board

Practical Knowledge

No theory, no academics, no filler. This is street-smart stuff learned through hands-on experience; information you’ll be able to apply whether you work for a large foundation or a small nonprofit. Our experts will present proven knowledge and top-level tools that you can implement before you even leave the conference.

Great Location

Held in beautiful Valley Forge, PA, the Eastern Regional Conference on Philanthropy is in a comfortable, relaxed, safe suburban setting.

No more inner-city traffic, one-way streets, construction closings, hours wasted searching for parking or dinged doors! We’re close to some great coffee shops and nightlife for after-hours entertainment; and located right next to scenic Valley Forge Park — the heart of American history, near our offices at PlannedGiving.Com.

Fun, informative, and a great place to network.

You’ll learn from the best, make valuable connections, and have fun, too! Meet fundraisers from all walks of life — and make friends for life!

You'll Learn

Practical. Technical. Universal. We cover it all.

You'll be Inspired

Speakers who believe in what they do and say. No snoozefests.

You'll be Equipped

Street smart, non-academic advice that works. All delivered in simple, plain English.

Planned & Major Gifts

These are areas that are always covered. You’ll learn all about it and how they interact together along with annual gifts.

Relationships

“It’s a people business, stupid.” Sharpening people skills is core to our business and often neglected at most conferences.

Personal Development

Less than 5% of people invest in it. Is it a coincidence that the same 5% are the top 5% of earners?

Philanthropy for Everyone

Fundraising is a people business, so what better way to learn than by surrounding yourself with other people who are fundraisers, too? Whether you work for a large institution or volunteer at a small nonprofit, there’s something here for you.
