and become inspired.

Portland, OR

August 26th & 27th

Early Bird Price: $199

*Valid through 4/17/20


Wednesday, August 26th and Thursday, August 27th in Portland, Oregon at The Duniway Hotel. There will also be a welcome reception on Tuesday, August 25th at the hotel.

The event is open to all current Greater Giving clients and prospective clients looking to learn more about fundraising trends, advance their skills, and share their knowledge and feedback.

Each organization may send up to two attendees. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel and accommodations to attend the event.

In 2014, Greater Giving leaders, inspired by the creativity and passion of our nonprofit clients, decided to host a one-day session in Portland focusing on the future of fundraising. There were lively roundtable discussions, networking, and sharing between all in attendance. Each summer the event has been a highlight for the Greater Giving team, bringing in clients, facilitating discussions, and making strong connections.

Due to the exclusive, small group nature of this event, we will only be accommodating 60 client attendees. During the summit you will also have the opportunity to meet members of the Greater Giving team and some of our industry partners.

The summit will cover a variety of subjects focused on nonprofit fundraising in addition to covering Greater Giving best practices and tips. More importantly, the Thought Leadership Summit is an opportunity to connect, discuss, and learn more about fundraising.

Ticket price includes daily breakfast and lunch during the conference, two-days of conference learning, engaging guest speakers and interaction with key Greater Giving team members.
