Lehigh Valley Philanthropy Institute

LVPI 2023

We can't wait for another fantastic year of learning at our 2023 Lehigh Valley Philanthropy Institute!

Last year, the AFP Eastern PA Chapter hosted yet another fantastic event for the Lehigh Valley’s 2022 fundraising education conference. Attendees enjoyed a half-day of opportunities to network with other fundraising professionals in the area, connect with vendors providing nonprofit services, and learn today’s emerging development techniques and strategies. Lehigh Philanthropy Institute is exclusively in person.

The Lehigh Valley Philanthropy Institute is your premiere fundraising conference in the region offering unique programs for development professionals to learn from leading experts in the field. Topics include best practices in fundraising techniques, innovation, research, and development.

We hope to see you attend this impactful event in the future. To inquire about future sponsorship and attendee details, please contact Christe Konopitski, Chapter Manager, at director@afpglv.org.
