“This was the best conference I have been to in a while - a very different approach that worked well for both veteran fundraisers and those new to the industry, for organizations large and small (and those in between).  As one of the "veterans", I sometimes feel like there is nothing new under the sun.  But with the "deep-dive" approach, I found myself re-thinking old assumptions and even organizational structures.  I felt, at the end of the day - inspired and that I had the best job in the world - to be working alongside the amazing people at this conference, all of us working for such great causes.”

Susan Paine, Human Rights Campaign

“The information provided makes so much sense but I never thought about fundraising that way. I was engaged every minute of the day and appreciated the fellowship with people in the same boat. Thanks for putting together such an informative event.”

Laura Colon, SPIN

“This sounds FABULOUS -- the kind of advanced thinking that people are really clamoring for. I love it!”

Kivi Leroux Miller, President,

“The case study approach made this conference stand out from the crowd. I thoroughly enjoyed this event and will highly recommend it to both my colleagues and friends in the industry!”

Aaron Fogleman, Brittny's Hope Foundation

“Engage was more than another "networking" event in sheep's clothing. Three of the things that made it a standout were: 1. The quality and relevance of the presentations, 2. The open forum format that encouraged high level collegial discussions. 3. The extremely efficient use of the participants' time.”

Willis Turner, Huntsinger & Jeffer

“Come to the Engage Conference and you'll become truly engaged with other great fundraisers and vendor partners. There's something for organizations of every size and did I say great networking and great food?”

Erica Waasdorp, a direct solution

“Great Conference! When's the next one?”

Emily Wheland, American Institute of Physics

“Outstanding Program. Tom Harrison from Russ Reid was so knowledgable, and all speakers carefully and completely answered all questions. It was a program for Fundraising Professionals who shared their successes and failures and weren't afraid to be heard and answered. There was a sense of camaraderie I don't see all that often. No one was "hiding" their secrets to success.”

Joan Bodenheimer, ALS Association

“The Engage Conference is the most substantive, serious, and useful professional conference I have ever attended in my 27 years in the fundraising business.  None of the presenters was trying to sell me anything, and they all provided lots of detailed facts about problems they encountered and the solutions they discovered.  This was not only incredibly useful, but also incredibly valuable -- I started using what I learned at the Engage Conference in my own work on my very first day back at the office.  I would definitely attend again, and there is no question I would recommend it to any and every colleague.  Thank you, Fundraising Success, for a truly worthwhile Engage Conference!”

Scott Huch, The Delta Group

“Engage was great! The case study approach provides practical insights into successful organizations.”

Neil Gallaiford, Stephen Thomas Ltd

“Regardless of how long you have been in the business, there is always room to learn from others. This exciting conference makes it possible. Take advantage of it!”

Duke Haddad, Ed.D., CFRE

“Having just spoken at a traditional fundraising conference, I can promise you that this kind of high-energy, interactive opportunity is going to appeal broadly. The concreteness of the case study focus is fantastic. Can't wait!”

Nancy Schwartz, President, Nancy Schwartz & Co. and author of the Getting Attention! Blog

“Go to this conference.”

Carrie Maria, The Monster Milers

“The Engage Conference is a terrific and innovative idea that will inject new life into the conference circuit.”

Roger Craver, Fundraising and Direct-Mail Guru, and Founder of DonorTrends and

“Engage was a fantastic event that I am so happy I was able to be a part of. I learned a great deal and met some fantastic people. Thanks for hosting such a beneficial meeting!”

Whitney Oppito, Womens Campaign International

“FundRaising Success is my go-to source for practical advice that I can use today. This conference is clearly going to be packed with that same level of information. That makes it a can't miss!”

Pamela Barden, Founder and President, PJ Barden Inc.

“The direct mail pre-conference session was very valuable because there were concrete examples of what other shops were doing in direct comparison to what my shop was doing.”

John Lankford, Illinois Institute of Technology

“Congratulations again on an excellent conference. I look forward to many more to come.”

Steve Kehrli, PETA Foundation

“After thirty years as a fundraiser, my expectations for this event were not high... Boy was I surprised to find myself "wow-ed" by each presentation. The chance to get face-to-face advice from some of my favorite on-line fundraising gurus was just one highlight. Hearing the story of the growth of the Human Rights Campaign was another. This was an excellent experience, I loved all of it.”

Susan Daily, Asociacion Puertorriquenos en Marcha (APM)

“I want to thank you for an “engaging” two days in Philadelphia last week. There was plenty of knowledge and experience to hear, and I was able to glean some useful information for Tri-State Bird’s fundraising efforts going forward. Congratulations on a successful event and good luck with your future endeavors.”

Nicholas “Duke” Doblick, Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc.

“I love the idea. I think there's more room for another conference, especially this way. I LOVE capping it to 150.”
