Session Title: Fundraising Trends to be Ahead of in 2023


About the program:
We’ve all heard the adage, what got you here won’t get you there. Never has this been more true than the past few years. In this session, we’ll look back at what has worked successfully from the most recent data. Then we’ll take a deep look at what future trends may bring for the nonprofit sector and for fundraising that includes economic, industry, and research analysis. Combined, this will assist fundraisers in developing strategies that leverage strengths and opportunities in 2023 along with the data to raise these discussions with executive staff and board leadership.
