There were nearly 200 of us there last year for EverTrue’s inaugural RAISE conference. We came to Boston for two days not knowing what to expect, but willing to try something different and get in on the ground level for a new event. We were hungry for innovation and inspiration to take back to campus with us.
RAISE 2016 did not disappoint. For many of us, it was the best two days of professional development we’d ever experienced. Speakers stirred our hearts as they elevated the standing of advancement in a world with a critical need for education. We took away actionable insights from brands like the Boston Celtics and Dunkin’ Donuts, and we heard from our higher-ed colleagues who were successfully applying these tactics to their work already.
If being part of a movement like this sounds exciting, you need to join RAISE 2017 this July to hear from leaders from the Red Sox, Facebook, Snapchat, startups, higher ed, and more.
Together at Raise, we will…
Break Out of the Bubble
This isn’t a conference of recycled session descriptions. RAISE takes the best of the for-profit and nonprofit worlds and brings them together in a brand-new conference experience. No vendor hall, no tote bags jammed full of papers and print-outs—just fantastic learning opportunities.
Hear from the Best Speakers
RAISE features a lineup of CEOs, foundation heads, entrepreneurs, and advancement VPs—forward-thinking leaders who know how to build great teams, connect with their audience, and deliver results.
Follow the Lead of Innovators
We’re going to learn from cutting-edge companies that are leading the charge in digital and social engagement, customer relations, marketing, and analytics. We’ll get best practices right from the source and quickly connect what we hear to what we do.
Enjoy Big Speakers in a Small Room
No wandering conference halls or searching for a seat. We’ll get plenty of time with speakers and attendees during sessions, at breakout workshops, and over beer tastings. And we’ll connect with longtime higher-ed partners who will share how they’re elevating their advancement game using the EverTrue Platform.
Leave Energized About What We Do
This is an opportunity for us to get pumped about fundraising. We’ll take ideas back to our teams with a clear vision about the future of advancement—for our industry and for each of our shops.
I cannot wait to be back at Raise surrounded by other likeminded, passionate people who care about what they do and want to learn how to take advancement, as an industry, to the next level. Will you join us there?
