Virtual 3-day Conference

November 23-25, 2020

AFP Congress has always been a thought-provoking conference, bringing outstanding speakers together to inspire attendees to rethink, reimagine and reset. 2020’s event will look different but deliver big! This virtual NOT CONGRESS 3-day conference will connect our fundraising community and deliver exceptional tools and insight to help you and your organization meet today’s challenges.

By taking Congress to a digital space this year, AFP is challenging the status quo of how this conference has traditionally run, taking some risks, and making it more inclusive. The event will still be presenting top quality content and showcasing the amazing work of our industry colleagues, but it’s going to look and feel a whole lot different than before. Join in this annual industry event!
