Send your fundraising event to school!

Join us and you'll learn strategy, gain best practices and develop a plan to take your fundraising event to new heights.

This two-day conference at the Hilton Downtown Portland is a chance to hit the pause button on your event cycle and look at how you can create a bigger impact with your fundraising events.
