Being a fundraiser means more than just raising funds.

And it starts with you. Fundraisers are the connection between donors and causes, the catalyst that makes philanthropy happen.

That’s why in 2015 AFP’s International Fundraising Conference is changing to focus on one thing—you.

No two fundraisers are alike, just like no two causes or fundraising campaigns are alike.
Fundraising is about what you want it to be—what you want to focus on and what impact you want to have on the world. It is only limited by your imagination.

What impact will you have on Fundraising in 2015? Get the skills to make it happen—and make a splash in Baltimore,  at the world’s largest gathering of professionals dedicated to building the charitable sector – “The International Fundraising Conference”

Fundraisers are skilled at understanding the motivations of donors, but are they equally attuned to their own emotions and intentions before they walk through a donor’s door? Is that even important? Maybe more than you think. The psychology of giving has long been of interest to fundraisers, but until recently, there has been comparatively little empirical or even anecdotal research about the psychology of the people who make the ask.
