Help Make Winter in Pittsburgh a Little Warmer! 

Winter nights are cold in Pittsburgh, especially for the city’s homeless population. But with your generosity you can help make our host city a little warmer this year. The 2016 ADRP International Conference is proud to partner with this year’s keynote speaker and 2015 CNN Hero, Dr. Jim Withers and Operation Safety Net to help Pittsburgh’s homeless population.  For the past 25 years, Dr. Withers and his team have provided outreach for the city’s unsheltered homeless, offering them health care, social services, access to shelter, and, of course, hope.

To assist Operation Safety Net in its compassionate mission, we invite you to include in your suitcase or carry-on a pair of new gloves and/or socks for adult men and women, which will be distributed to street homeless individuals in Pittsburgh. Once you arrive at the conference venue, stop by Café Connections to place the items in one of the onsite donation bins.

 ADRP Video Awards

The ADRP Video Awards showcase the best of the best donor relations videos submitted by teams across the globe. As videos become an increasingly popular means of communicating the mission of our organizations to donors, ADRP members have consistently raised the bar in video storytelling. 

Conference attendees will have an opportunity to view the Top 10 videos, selected by a panel of expert judges from across the country, in the VIP Screening Room on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday morning, we’ll open the ADRP Annual Meeting by showcasing the Top 3 videos, as voted on by conference attendees, and everyone will have a chance to vote live for this year’s Video of the Year (“The Stewie”).

Interested in a video submission?  Your team could win “The Stewie” and a complimentary registration for the 2017 ADRP International Conference. Learn more and find out how to enter the contest.

Thank you to all who participated in this year's Video Awards. The submissions are now CLOSED. We look forward to viewing the Top 10 videos at the conference!
