In other words, they don’t provide the same old, tired solutions to nonprofit challenges.

Why should I attend the P2P 201 conference?
- Peer-to-peer fundraising (P2P) is an essential part of many fundraising programs.

The conference will provide participants with best practices around P2P.

For example, some of the featured speakers include Lisa Bowman, CMO, United Way Worldwide; Courtney Bugler, Race for the Cure series director, Susan G.

How can I afford to go to this conference?
Let me close this article on the P2P 201 Conference by saying this about fees. I recognize that many organizations operate on limited budgets. However, I think that if you follow my blog you are someone who believes in growth and sustainability, as it is something I write about often on my blog.
I’ve been in your shoes. When I started the nonprofit organization that I founded years ago, I was working with my team from the kitchen table. But, we also knew that growing the organization at scale was crucial in our vision for broad impact. That means you need to think creatively about raising funds for the things that matter, like attending professional development conferences that will help you gain the skills you need to grow your organization by getting more fundraising dollars in the business. door.
Ask a major donor to personally fund this aspect of your work and demonstrate the impact of your donation by showing the increased fundraising dollars you will raise through peer fundraising. You can also simply budget money from your general operating funds or ask a foundation to award you a professional development grant. Whatever you decide to do, make it a priority.
With us now falling, if you are looking for conferences to attend during the year, this would be one of them.
