Sanky at AFPFC 2016!

The 53rd Annual Association of Fundraising Professionals International Conference kicked off Sunday, March 20th! More than 4,000 of the best minds in nonprofit fundraising are gathering from around the world in Boston, Massachusetts to share their knowledge. The conference offers more than 100 sessions organized around various "education tracks," which can help attendees either diversify their training or dive deep to develop an expertise.

This year's conference theme is “Rebels, Renegades, and Pioneers,” which the Association of Fundraising Professionals describes as "provocative, leadership-oriented discussions of the glories, the failures, and the future of the nonprofit world." General Session Speakers include Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, and Kumi Naidoo, the Executive Director of Greenpeace International.

As part of the Trends and Innovation track, Paul Habig (Sanky President), Harry Lynch (Sanky CEO), and Carla Chadwick (Covenant House Director of Digital Fundraising) will host an interactive game show on current fundraising trends titled, "Truth or Consequences." You can expect a full range of online and direct mail case studies presented by expert nonprofit fundraisers.

Will we see you at the conference?

Our “Truth or Consequences” panel is happening Tuesday, March 22nd from 1:30 to 3:00PM EST—you don’t want to miss it! Find the full sessions list here.
