2015 Education Program

Tracks & Sessions

We're here with the support you need to reach your goals.

We've designed this year's Bridge Conference education program to give you the knowledge you need to reach for the peak of your success, no matter how high your goals are — with a new track line-up that focuses on every marketing channel and every level of the donor pyramid.

With 14 tracks, 77 unique sessions, 3 pre-conference workshops-and an emphasis on providing more case studies and innovative content, our goal is to make this the best conference you've ever attended.

Hear some of our industry's best experts within these 14 exceptional tracks:

Track 1: More On Direct Marketing & Fundraising!
Track 2: Monthly Giving, Mid-Level Giving and Other Things
Track 3: Cutting Edge Digital
Track 4: Major Gifts
Track 5: Renewing & Upgrading Donors
Track 6: Donor Acquisition & Reactivation
Track 7: Boards and Best Practices for Non-profit Management
Track 8: Philanthropy Tomorrow: Powerful Trends & Ideas
Track 9A: Data & Analytics
Track 9B: Storytelling
Track 10A: Planned Giving
Track 10B: Capital Campaigns & Special Initiatives

You know the best part of keeping up with the latest knowledge?

You are limited only by how you use it!

And part of what makes this year's Bridge Conference so extraordinary is the chance to explore new areas and expand your marketing horizons. It's a chance for the social media guru to learn about building personal, one-on-one relationships as seen through the eyes of a major donor fundraiser, or the Vice President of sales to gain insights on how to tell a better story. This year's Bridge Conference will give you opportunities, unlike any conference you've ever attended. It will give you the secrets to breaking down those silos everyone always talks about!

Looking for some basics for staff or refreshers for yourself, our Pre-Conference Workshops are a steal of a deal at just $165. Choose one of our three 6-hour Pre-Conference workshops on the fundamentals of direct marketing, fundraising and digital.
