2021 Fundraising Year-in-Review is a broad discussion on the fundraising industry during these past 12 months: The rise of Community Centric Fundraising (CFF). Are crypto donations legit? Why are donors now drawn to impact investing? And what are the qualities of nonprofit leadership?

About: The Donor Participation Project (DPP) convenes fundraising professionals who are concerned about the nationwide decline in donor participation (20 million US households lost between 2000-2016).
We believe this can be solved by changing our fundraising practices and want to learn from peers who are moving the participation needle.

This event will take place over Zoom.
The session will be recorded and accessible post-event for DPP members only.
