This year’s theme – The Changing Realities in Fund Development

What do our donors want and expect?
COVID-19 has put an exclamation point behind the need for organizations to take a long and hard look
at their approach to creating meaningful relationships with a most important stakeholder:
donors, alumni and community partners.

What is the impact of this change on the fund development profession?
If there is no “new normal” – what innovation is needed?
How do we take advantage of uncertainty?
Change is certain. The only ‘choice’ remaining is whether to facilitate agility, or to stand back
and let opportunity pass us by.
