Fundraising Summit inspires full house in Goppert

Avila University will hold its second annual Inspired Fundraising Summit Wednesday, Sept. 30. Influential leaders in fundraising and philanthropy and a panel of women in philanthropy will dive into the way fundraisers, CEOs, Executive Directors and nonprofit professionals can elevate the way they approach the craft.

The event and its speakers introduce a research-based philosophy: spend less time thinking about the donations and spend more time learning more about those who donate. This change in mindset regarding fundraising psychology is the “secret sauce” required to bring more money in to your organization. Last year, 450 people attended the event and this September Avila is anticipating a record setting audience.
