Our NEAGC Team

The mission of the Northeast Annual Giving Association, Ltd., is to provide education and guidance to members of academic institutions located primarily in the Northeast on how to increase charitable donations to their educational institutions. The annual conference will host consultants and professionals in the field of fund-raising, who present lectures and workshops with an emphasis on annual fund-raising.
