Banff Compass 2019: Evolving Philanthropy.


Banff Compass 2019:

Evolving Philanthropy - Recharge, Reboot, Re-envision

April 28th to May 1st, 2019

Banff Centre - 107 Tunnel Mountain Drive, Banff, AB T1L 1H5

Has there ever been a more challenging time for fundraising professionals? As we look ahead to the future – at incoming generations, shifts in giving vehicles, turbulent economic and political landscapes – what do all of these changes mean and how do we learn the new rules of philanthropy?

As we prepare to navigate the complexities impacting our sector – are we ready? 

The fundraising world is changing. Don’t be left behind. It’s time to invest in new strategies and skill sets.

Let’s take a breath and re-boot. In the majestic Rocky Mountains of Banff, we’ll connect with new ideas and approaches. We’ll find inspiration and acquire valuable insights and actionable tactics. We’ll return home refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to tackle the future.

Banff Compass 2019 is about more than simply staying afloat amid uncertain times. It’s about taking action, learning from one another and discovering the strategies we need to thrive in these changing times.

Fundraising is becoming more complex, multifaceted, and data-driven.

Smart non-profits of all sizes are building their expertise and making use of the new digital and social tools to build causes and support.  It’s worth the investment to give you and your staff professional training and education. 

Whatever your stage of career – whether you’re a seasoned fundraising professional or brand new to the field – you’ll want to be part of the conversation that impacts your organization, donors and community.
