Fundraise North

Thank You for Attending!

We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for being a part of the Fundraise North and National Philanthropy Day event on Friday, October 27 at the McNamara Alumni Center, University of Minnesota. Your presence and participation made this gathering a remarkable success!

Fundraise North and National Philanthropy Day is an annual highlight for our fundraising community, providing a unique opportunity to come together, learn, and celebrate our shared dedication to making a positive impact. This one-day conference featured a wealth of insightful breakout sessions covering relevant topics such as collective giving, resilience and retention, and even ChatGPT, highlighting the cutting-edge developments in our field.

One of the highlights of the day was the National Philanthropy Day luncheon, where we had the privilege to honor and celebrate stories of remarkable generosity and service from individuals and organizations across Minnesota. It was truly an inspiring and heartwarming experience. Watch the 2023 NPD honoree panel here.

We thank you for your enthusiasm, your active participation, and for being a part of this event. Your presence and contributions are what make this day special, and we look forward to more opportunities to learn and grow together as a community at next year's event.

While COVID-19 remains with us despite the formal end to the national health emergency, we have reached a period in the pandemic where we possess more tools and resources than ever before to better protect ourselves and our communities. AFP Minnesota no longer requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for large events; however, if you feel ill, please stay home. As we gather, we recognize that our colleagues are coming from different personal circumstances. Therefore, we ask all event attendees to help us create a supportive environment for anyone wearing a mask, and we encourage all to feel free to wear a mask if needed to protect the health of the community, themselves, or the health of loved ones.
