Past Conference Highlights

The inaugural Nonprofit Fundraising Masters conference series kicked off in 2016 at Microsoft’s state-of-the-art Silicon Valley Conference Center on July 27 followed by the San Francisco edition at the Fillmore Heritage Center on October 19th.

The conference series was a terrific success, attracting 100% approval ratings from senior and emerging leaders in the nonprofit sector.
