2016 Keynote Speakers



LAURA FREDRICKS Founder & CEO of THE ASK©, puts the world of ASKING into perspective by teaching nonprofits and philanthropic professionals how to confidently and successfully ASK for charitable dollars. 



JUSTIN WARE, Vice President for Digital Fundraising Strategy with ScaleFunder, has nearly 15 years of digital fundraising and communication experience with online fundraising platforms.



Robert Burdenski has been a key component to the NEAGC for years, and we are thrilled Bob will be joining us again for two days, moderating several breakout sessions including "Bob 101" for newcomers to annual giving and "Innovations in Annual Giving." 
Bob is an internationally-recognized annual giving program consultant, speaker, trainer and author for schools, colleges and universities.


The NEAGC has been recommended by:





The Northeast Annual Giving Conference began in 2003 with a small group of annual fund directors who came together in upstate New York for a one-day brainstorming session. During the next several years, the founding group took turns hosting our small conference as we continued to invite more and more colleagues from area colleges and universities. Early on it became clear that development budgets for professional conferences were diminishing, and many annual fund offices could not afford to send their staffs to national conventions or conferences.

Last year, the NEAGC proudly served more than 225 annual giving professionals with a two-day conference, with distinguished keynote speakers and well-known Advancement faculty to conduct comprehensive and practical breakout sessions. The conference fee for 2016 will remain at a very reasonable fee of $150. 

The NEAGC is backed by the Northeast Annual Giving Association, Ltd., with a Board of Directors, all volunteers from local colleges.

Who should attend?

This is a great opportunity for all Advancement/Development Professionals to network and hear from top-notch speakers on topics such as: Annual Giving, Leadership Gifts in Annual Giving, Stewardship, Direct Mail, Phonathon, Donor Relations, Parent Campaigns, Student Advancement, Development Research, Social Media in Annual Giving, and more. This conference is geared toward a first-year annual fund professional just getting started as well as a senior annual giving director – with our basic through advanced-level breakout sessions.

No matter your location... North, South, East or West -- everyone is welcome to attend the conference.
