Speaker Proposals 

From the novice to the experienced professional, whether you work in healthcare, education, the arts, or the broader nonprofit sector, we’re looking for talented presenters who can share ideas, concepts, and knowledge in donor relations practice and trends. 

Share your expertise with other donor relations professionals. We’d love to hear from you!

We are especially interested in the following topics:

  • Planned giving stewardship
  • Performative diversity efforts vs. transformational approaches
  • Diversity in donor relations
  • Intersection of donor-centric and community-centric approaches
  • Gift agreements overview
  • Hybrid events
  • Evolving role of a donor relations professional
  • Corporate Stewardship
  • Metrics

Three content tracks are:

  1. Skill building—topics geared to “here are the basics of” and “here’s how to” for foundational DRS areas like gift documentation, compliance, reporting, acknowledgments, recognition, and engagement.
  2. Leadership and management—content that’s tactical or strategic, inspirational or instructional. What challenges have you overcome in your position? How’s that hybrid format working? How did you land that promotion?
  3. Creativity and innovation—results that exhibit problem-solving, imagination, vision, and pure genius. How did you overcome and shrinking budget and staff? How did you surprise and delight?
