NOVEMBER 28-30 Metro Toronto Convention Centre North Building, Toronto, Ontario

Fundraising ideas worth sharing


Maria Dyck, MBA, CFRE Chair, Congress 2011

Dear Friends and Colleagues: Remember the last time you had an important insight, something that made you stop, reflect, and think hard? It was exciting and stimulating and made you eager to act. That’s what Congress is all about. Every year, about a thousand fundraisers get together to share their ‘aha’ moments. We talk about what’s working well, what we’ve learned, what others are doing, and what opportunities await. It’s three great days of fundraising ideas worth sharing! Please check out our Congress blog at www.afptoronto.org/blog

This guide tells you more about Congress 2011, and what exciting and interesting sessions await you from November 28th through the 30th. Inside, you’ll find information about the fantastic group of speakers who will address you. You’ll learn more about what’s new this year, and hear from our great plenary speakers Rebecca Davies, Tony Elischer, and Simon Sinek. Last year we sold out, so make sure you reserve your spot today! Fundraising success depends on the work of many volunteers and Congress is no different. A team of your colleagues has worked hard throughout the year to make this Congress the best fundraising conference ever. I want to thank committee chairs Denny Young, Samantha Jones, Suzanne Duncan, and Julie Cookson, as well as their many committee members for the hours they’ve put in. I also want to thank our valuable partners who participate as sponsors and exhibitors and also share ideas with delegates. Their support helps keep the price of Congress as low as possible for you, and their participation makes your experience richer. I look forward to seeing you in the halls in November!

OPENING PLenary

Monday, November 28, 9:00am - 10:00am

Simon Sinek Leadership Expert and Author of Start With Why

Start With Why Every person and organization on the planet knows what they do. Some know how they do it, but very few know WHY they do what they do. By WHY, we mean why does your organization exist? Why do you get out of bed every morning? And why should anyone care? There is something all great leaders and great organizations have in common – they are able to inspire action. From Martin Luther King Jr. to Apple, leaders with the ability to inspire all think, act, and communicate the same way, and it’s the exact opposite from everyone else. They don’t start with what they want done or how they want it done. They always start with a greater purpose, cause or belief that inspires others to follow. They start with Why.

Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together. Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect”, Simon is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them. Simon’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention, and have earned him invitations to meet with leaders and organizations in a wide array of industries, including: Microsoft, Dell, Intel, Chanel, the U.S. Military, Members of the U.S. Congress, the Ambassadors of Bahrain and Iraq, multiple government agencies, and entrepreneurs. Simon is an adjunct staff member of the RAND Corporation, where he advises on matters of military innovation and planning. He is also active in the arts and non-profit world, working with the Education for Employment Foundation to help create opportunities for young men and women in the Middle East region. When not in hotels, he lives in New York, where he teaches graduate level strategic communications at Columbia University.

Tuesday, November 29, 9:30am - 10:00am

Rebecca Davies, CFRE Director of Fundraising Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders Canada

Love at First Gift: Winning the Loyal Affection of Your Donors Inspiring and engaging first-time donors to become enduring supporters of your organization can be a difficult task. Within two months of the cataclysmic earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, MSF Canada had acquired 45,000 new donors; more than half gave online. Three months later, these new supporters were converting to monthly donors at a rate of 50% higher than the organization’s annual conversion campaigns of its existing donor base. Learn how MSF Canada, through accountability and both a strategic and intuitive interplay of channel choice, stewarded these first-time emergency donors - a traditionally challenging segment with tenuous loyalty after the initial gift - into longterm and committed supporters of its general fund.

As Director of Fundraising for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders Canada, Rebecca Davies leads a team of 15 to raise over $31 million annually in private donations for medical humanitarian relief in 70 countries around the globe. Previously, she held development positions for Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation, Women’s College Hospital Foundation, and the University of Toronto during its $1 billion Great Minds Campaign. Rebecca currently serves on the Historic Houses Museum Board of Toronto. She is past Vice-President of the Women’s Musical Club of Toronto Centennial Foundation, and was a member of the AFP Greater Toronto Chapter’s Ethics and Professional Advancement Committee. Rebecca is an active classical musician and plays hockey.

Bursaries are made possible through the support of the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – Canada and the contribution of RBC Foundation.

RBC Foundation is inspired to make a difference by supporting endeavours that strengthen the charitable sector.

Denny Young, MA, CFRE Education Chair

Exciting Changes for Education More Choice Than Ever Before Workshops, Lectures, Case Studies, and Discussions. Take Your Pick! This year at Congress you’ll find it easier to create a learning experience that suits your individual objectives. Understanding that people learn in different ways, we’ve refined curriculum delivery by segmenting sessions into four formats: workshops, lectures, case studies, and discussions. Workshops are designed to help you learn or upgrade specific skills. Led by top professionals and featuring a variety of interactive learning methods, these sessions will give you the chance to discover and practice new techniques. Lectures offer an opportunity to hear from an expert on a particular topic. Unlike workshops which feature an interactive environment, lectures give you an uninterrupted, thoughtprovoking one-hour period to hear from, learn, and be challenged by some of the best people in fundraising today. Discussions are your chance to speak up and engage on a topic with other professionals. Led by a skilled facilitator, these sessions will give participants the opportunity to discuss ideas and share opinions. Come explore the complexities of a specific subject, and discover and better understand different points of view.

10

Early Bird Deadline: October 24

There are many exciting projects going on in fundraising, and so we’re devoting the entire second morning of Congress to Case Studies. With a wide variety of topics and speakers, each presented for just 30 minutes, you can choose three case studies that are most interesting and relevant to you. Each will follow a common format, with the speaker describing the objectives, methods, and outcomes of a particular project or research study. As in past years, sessions are classified to help you choose the educational experience that best suits your needs: GREEN LEVEL SESSIONS These are practical sessions of general interest and open to all delegates. Choose green if you are new to fundraising, want to learn best practice around specific topics, or want a comprehensive overview of the subject. YELLOW LEVEL SESSIONS These are strategic sessions offering more advanced instruction. Choose yellow sessions if you have some fundraising experience, are required to provide input into the development of strategy at your organization, or are looking to enhance your skill level and knowledge in the subject. RED LEVEL SESSIONS These are leadership sessions for senior leaders. They are excellent forums if you’re a seasoned fundraiser. These sessions are exclusive to those with ten or more years of experience. Whether you’re a veteran of Congress or considering your first visit, this year’s event promises you an unparalleled opportunity to design a learning plan that fits your style. Please join us!

Please read the prospectus before investing and the program guide before donating. Mutual Funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Traditional notions of sponsorship are dead. We are now in the era of strategic cooperative marketing where organizations and private sector companies work together to deliver value to each other, as well as the end-user. Organizations that don’t adapt will be out of the game.
