With this harsh winter, sunny Miami in March is just one of the enticing reasons to attend the 2018 Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum Conference. This is the largest conference dedicated to peer-to-peer fundraising, with more than 50% of the top 30 nonprofits in the space attending. The conference includes inspirational speakers, motivating sessions and hundreds of peer-to-peer fundraising experts from the US and Canada. The best part of the conference? Learning from, and networking with, so many peers all in one place. DonorDrive has been a proud sponsor of this event for over a decade.

42 speakers to inspire

This two-day event is non-stop learning from the top experts in peer-to-peer fundraising.  Here are a few of the “can’t miss” sessions:

Day 1

Opening Session: Digital Strategies That Boost Retention

 With participant retention being such a hot topic right now, John Haydon presents some excellent strategies for keeping your top fundraisers engaged and returning year after year.

Breakout Session: Activating Zero Dollar Fundraisers

One of the longest-running issues in peer-to-peer fundraising is event participants who show up, but don’t raise a dime. DonorDrive clients, Tracy Earll from the National Hemophilia Foundation and Betsy Drach of Team World Vision, will show you how they’ve turned their inactive participants into active fundraisers.

Breakout Session: Mission Engagement On Your Event

In a crowded fundraising space, events are standing out by creating micro experiences that inspire and engage participants in their mission. OP 3’s Colleen Healy Fitzgerald and DonorDrive client Nicole Dolan from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention share real-life examples of events that create mission engagement that lasts.

Day 2

Breakout Session: Unleashing Corporate Support Through Better Relationship Management

Join DonorDrive client Elyse Meardon, Senior Director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Dance Marathon, and Linda Tantawi, CEO of Susan G. Komen NYC, as they guide you in turning your corporate sponsorships into meaningful, ongoing partnerships.

For many, this conference has proven to be a great way to connect with the “who’s who” in peer-to-peer fundraising and take away great ideas to improve your nonprofit’s fundraising. Make sure to stop by the DonorDrive booth to talk fundraising and grab the best swag at the conference. The event is March 1-2 at the Hilton Miami in Miami, Florida.
