“Thank you for all your hard work & planning. Great programs and opportunities to network with a generous community.” (a 2015 Gathering Participant)
The Quaker Fundraisers Gathering is a biennial educational and networking conference for fundraising professionals and volunteers working in Quaker schools, organizations, meetings and churches. Friends Fiduciary Corporation has coordinated and sponsored the event since 2003, working with a volunteer coordinating group each year composed of Quaker fundraisers that guide, shape and assist with the Gathering.
Each Gathering provides a wide range of valuable learning and networking opportunities with terrific speakers and presenters offering both formal and informal learning and networking opportunities throughout the Gathering.
The 2015 Gathering held in Philadelphia, was the most successful ever with over 135 participants engaging on a variety of fundraising topics from the plenary keynote speaker on Wednesday night through the close of Gathering at noon on Friday. The Gathering theme was “Fundraising as a Spiritual Practice.” The evaluations of the 2015 sessions were excellent.
The 2015 program gives a taste of what the Quaker Fundraisers Gathering has to offer. Keynote addresses from the last two Gatherings are available here. All sessions at the 2015 Quaker Fundraisers Gathering were approved for CFRE credits.
“The sessions I attended were as good as it gets!! My only frustration was having to choose between amazing presenters.” (another 2015 Gathering Participant)
