Experience Fundraising: The New Normal for Next-gen Donors
Next-gen donors — who are already giving three-quarters of all dollars to charity and comprise 88 percent of today’s donor universe — aren’t responding to last-century approaches that focus on a transaction. Today, donor experience (dx) is the new platform for engaging next-gen donors in today’s Experience Economy. Next gens don’t just desire it, they expect it. Stop losing ground in today’s experience-centered economy. Learn how you can re-tool your organization to effectively engage experience-obsessed, next-gen donors.

So We’ve Got This Development Office… How to Evaluate Your Advancement Efforts
Mission mandates money and the more of it the better. But with limited resources, both human and financial, we need to ensure our efforts are highly productive and reflective of our organizations and ministries. What does a comprehensive development program include? Where should we put most of our effort? How does it grow? What should we measure? How do we hold staff accountable? This program will give you guidance for evaluating both programs and personnel.

1. Identify the components of a successful development program and benchmarks of success
2. Learn how to analyze results and impact
3. Develop tools for effective evaluation of programs and personnel

How To Build Deeper Relationships With Your Donors
As a development professional it is so easy to fall into the pressure and excitement of fundraising and minimize our job to just raising money. Perhaps this is why discouragement and burnout are so common in our field. Focusing all your efforts on fundraising for the next big thing and then the next big thing after that, is like being trapped on a gerbil wheel. But development is about so much more—deep relationships
1. Understand your ministries income is determined by service to donors
2. Understand how to place major donor interests first to build trust
3. Understand leadership is the key to your development success

What's New in Donor Privacy Laws and The Future of Wealth Screening
Buckle Up, Folks, There's Going to be Turbulence!

Oh, my… We’re going to be talking about laws, rules, regulations, and court cases. You’re immediately wondering, "Can this really be the session I don’t want to miss at this year’s conference?" The answer: YES! This is one. Bringing a global perspective to the NCD Conference on recent developments that impact our work in philanthropy and fundraising, this session zeroes in on one particular topic that is near and dear to all of us: the use of wealth screening as a resource for the detailed intelligence we use in building donor profiles, designing ask strategies, and considering campaign goals. If we look to the East, the European Union’s new GDPR – General Data Protection Regulations – are already changing the way global charities gather, store, and use donor data. If we look to the West, leaders in California are calling for an American-style GDPR to become the law of the land. If we look down the street, there are rumblings that Congress may take up this issue as quickly as 2019. None of this sounds like something that will make our work easier. What does all this mean for the future of Wealth Screening? Ah, that’s why this session is the one you really don’t want to miss. This talk is presented by long-time lawyer and fundraiser Ted Sudol. With four decades of experience in the law of philanthropy, he will share insights, strategies, tactics, and tips that address the challenge squarely. Whatever your role and responsibilities, you’ll leave this session with a solid understanding of the issues – and, some creative ways to think about the future of wealth screening and donor privacy rights.

1. To identify the primary issues: That Donor Privacy Laws are not something we can ignore; donors are becoming more aware of their rights; regulators are cracking down with unprecedented force; and wealth screening is in the crosshairs.
2. To provide a primer on the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and domestic developments in donor privacy regulations.
3. To review the responses by wealth screeners to these changes and offer practical tips and insights on what is still possible and what may no longer be possible in the world of wealth screening.

Church in Crisis: How Philanthropy Can Change Narratives and Bridge Divides
In our increasingly polarized society, key issues surrounding issues impacting the Catholic faith - including the sex abuse crisis, health care, and immigration (to name a few) - have been brought to the fore. And at a time when uncertainty, fear, and divisiveness is increasingly fostered throughout our nation, organizations have the opportunity - and even the responsibility – to bring people together in a way that will drive change and move your missions forward. This talk will equip you with the tools to shift this narrative, empower donors, strengthen relationships, and drive critical change through philanthropy.

1. Demonstrate how philanthropy can help rebuild trust in the Catholic faith.
2. Build the confidence of Directors of Development and executive leaders to continue making asks.
3. Offer best practices for communicating with donors and increasing stewardship efforts during the broader crisis in the Church.
