They love it. Read what the previous attendees had to say!

“I found the conference to have a very fresh take on approaching advancement work. We should implement best practices from for-profit but many advancement models seem stuck in the past.”

Elizabeth Breidinger, Bennington College

“We’re behind, and all that was shared in a day and a half is exactly what we need to get up to speed. Seeing what non-profits could be doing to keep up with and utilize the advancements the for-profit world has already been using was a game-changer.”

Sydney Bell, Nazareth College

“RAISE is not status quo. It’s aspirational and inspirational in the way we need to think and the way we need to run our business.”

Kathy McCann, Union College

“RAISE provides an opportunity for fusing best innovative thinking in advancement with for-profit sector best practices. It’s vision driven while still tackling some of the challenges in our industry with case studies and access to have important conversations with the EverTrue team.”

Juan Baena, Williams College

“RAISE is forward-looking, cutting-edge, and fun. It’s great forum for networking with like-minded advancement professionals who are eager to see the industry modernize with the times.”

Nic Emery, Berkshire School

“A great opportunity to learn innovative ideas from your peers and leaders in the for profit world. You might even meet an alumnus/a!”

Anthony Barbuto, Boston University
