Learn how to disrupt the traditional practices of charitable fundraising

Guest post by Stacy Coleman
Senior Marketing Associate, Vivanista

Join us on Nov. 11 and 12 in San Francisco to take part in Vivanista’s Charitable Fundraising Summit, which will bring together volunteer leaders, fundraising event chairs and nonprofit development staff for inspiring keynotes, expert panels and training workshops.

With the goal of arming fundraisers and volunteers with tools to increase their fundraising effectiveness, The Fundraising Summit will address how to:

  • Improve fundraising profitability and long-term viability in an uncertain economy
  • Acquire new, tangible fundraising tools that can be integrated immediately
  • Gain access to experts for real-life fundraising and donor-loyalty advice

The summit kicks off Friday evening Nov 11 with the VivaBrite Awards, which will honor individuals and nonprofits who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, fundraising acumen and creative thinking with respect to the successful execution of a charitable event.

On Saturday, Nov. 12, the summit will continue with a full day of workshops, panels and keynotes from leading experts, addressing key areas such as generating event revenue, social media and building sustainable audiences. Socialbrite founder JD Lasica will be speaking on the social media panel.

Additional speakers include: Bestselling nonprofit author Kay Sprinkle Grace; (RED) creator Tamsin Smith; GirlUp at The UN Foundation director Gina Reiss-Wilchins; LinkedIn nonprofit community leader Bryan Breckenridge; and director of nonprofit services at Causes, Susan Gordon of Causes.com, among others.
