The 11th Annual NC Philanthropy Conference and Pre-Conference Sessions will take place at the Koury Convention Center (3121 High Point Rd) in Greensboro on August 18 - 20, 2015.

NC Philanthropy Conference: August 20, 2015. Application Deadline: June 12, 2015
The conference attracts fundraising professionals, executive directors, and other staff from small grass-roots non-profits to large universities & foundations who serve the people of North Carolina. This year's conference is all about nonprofit fundraisers - the staff who wear multiple hats, have more and more responsibilities, and are charged to do much more with much less.
The sessions are CFRE approved and bring industry leaders (consultants, practitioners, and philanthropists) selected to present dynamic, interactive breakout sessions. Last year the conference attracted to Raleigh more than 440 attendees from 250+ organizations. The NC Philanthropy Conference is well respected, evaluated highly, and continues to grow.

Pre-Conference Session: August 18-19, 2015. Application Deadline: July 17, 2015
The AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course was developed with a foundation from the Essentials of Fundraising Program and the First Course in Fundraising and is composed of seven modules that have been designed by experienced fundraising professionals to meet the real-world needs and challenges non-profit organizations face every day.
This 16 hour course is meant to be taught in an active learning style and includes case studies and projects for groups and individuals, making the learning experience both substantive and enjoyable. The AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course offers a complete overview of the development function, featuring the most current information and techniques and will provide an overview of skills, techniques, and program components for individuals with zero to four years of fundraising experience.

Pre-Conference Session: August 18-19, 2015. Application Deadline: July 17, 2015
AFP's CFRE Review Course offers development professionals an opportunity to review the main components of a complete fundraising program.  The purpose of this two-day, 16 hour intensive program is to provide an overview of skills, techniques, and program components based on fundraising experience at the five-year level.

The course was developed for intermediate-level fundraising professionals who want a quick and comprehensive overview of fundraising principles.  Its content is organized around the CFRE exam domains: Current and Prospective Donor Research, Securing the Gift, Relationship Building, Volunteer Involvement, Management, and Accountability.  Participants engage in fundraising problem-solving with top-notch professionals and network with fundraising peers.
