Forum on Strategic Fundraising

New in 2016: Advancement Northwest hosted our first annual Forum on Strategic Fundraising, a two-day conference on June 16-17 in Seattle. This was be our only major professional development event of the year, blending the most in-depth and intensive events in our history – our annual Winter and Spring Conferences and Symposium on Major Gifts – into two days of active learning, deep discussions and inspired networking.

Several hundred fundraisers, philanthropists, community leaders and others join us every November for our annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon – making it one of the largest events of its kind in the nation.
