Fundraising Day in New York 2019
Fundraising Day in New York 2019 (FRDNY 2019) marks the 40th year of the nation’s premier conference on philanthropy, which nearly 2,000 fundraisers and nonprofit leaders will attend. More than 150 thought-leaders in the industry are volunteering their time to bring best practices, ideas and insights, stimulating conversations, and networking opportunities to the event. Orr Group Chief Operating Officer, CJ Orr, will moderate the session “Keep Them Coming Back!” on why it’s as important to sell well as it is to be a true partner – and how to do it.
Attendees will learn:
- What partners are looking for that isn’t in the agreement
- When to say yes and how to say no
- How to keep a sponsorship even after your contact has moved on
Speakers include: Jorrie Bruffett, Vice President Food and Marketing, Pret A Manger; Kathy Holding, Director, Special Events, City Harvest; Lauren Willis, Manager, Tackle Kids Cancer and Annual Giving, Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation.

Attendees will learn how to:
- Build a team for internal and external goals
- Communicate and collaborate effectively
- Recognize and alleviate conflicts
