Amy’s Tuesday Sessions:


Leadership Breakfast Forum
Tuesday, April 17th
7:00am – 8:30am

The Leadership Breakfast Forum is designed for board members and senior staff. It is an opportunity to learn together. Because nonprofit board members may not have time to attend the entire conference, this forum is offered as a separate event –you can attend just this one event or combine it with a full conference registration. In either case, with her engaging and participatory style, Amy Eisenstein will give nonprofit leaders an inspiring start to the day.

7:00am – 8:30am –  (optional, additional cost – can be added during registration)

Building Better Boards: Fundraising Focused Roles and Responsibilities

Do you wish your board members helped with fundraising? Many board members don’t help with fundraising because they simply haven’t been taught how or given tools to be successful. Bring your board members (or come yourself!) and join Amy Eisenstein as she explores simple, yet impactful ways to get your board members engaged and energized in fundraising. 

Leave with tools and exercises you can use at your next board meeting or retreat! Get started in advance with a free Ebook, “6 Essential Secrets for Board Retreats that Work” at

The Major Gifts Challenge: How to Start (or Grow) Your Major Gifts Program

This session is targeted toward executive directors and development staff who want to raise significantly more money for their organizations. Get help making the leap into major gifts fundraising, and learn what you need to know to get started. Most nonprofit professionals are not effectively soliciting major gifts for their organizations. If you want to start or grow your individual giving/major gifts program, this session is for you. Whether a major gift for your organization is $1,000 or $10,000, you will learn how ask for and receive more major gifts this year!
