Conference on Philanthropy

Isn't It Time We All Re-Connected?
Let's Rekindle, Recharge and Grow.

The Premiere Fundraising Conference
AFP-NJ’s Annual Conference on Philanthropy is the premier fundraising conference in the region offering unique programs for and conversations with development professionals. This year’s conference, the 42nd annual, will provide many opportunities for casual and structured interaction, engagement, and connections with your fellow professionals, something that has been missing from our lives for the last two years.

In our digital era, face-to-face interactions are irreplaceable, and being together in one room can be electrifying. The Conference on Philanthropy is designed this year to help create a genuine connection with others. Our goal is to provide you with opportunities to express yourself, share values and find a place of belonging while attaining best practices in fundraising techniques and joining a discourse on the most pertinent topics in our field.

Featuring Structured Networking Sessions
Join your fundraising colleagues for an opportunity to discuss current topics in our field, get feedback on your pressing questions, and network with like minds.
