Mark your calendar for Thursday and Friday, April 6th and 7th ... it's going to be the best healthcare philanthropy conference you have ever attended!

We are still working on finalizing the logistics, but we do know a few things:

Bill BartoliniThe keynote speaker will be William F. Bartolini, PhD, ACFRE. Dr. Bartolini is currently the Senior Philanthropic Advisor, Principal Gifts, at The Ohio State University. He is responsible for building gifts of $5M+ to the Wexner Medical Center and the Health Sciences. Previously he helped prepare George Washington University’s 13 schools and units for their first $1B campaign. He is recognized as an AFP Master Teacher who regularly presents at the AFP International Conference and other gatherings. He is known as the entertaining and engaging presenter who taught "Major Gifts" at Columbia University’s Masters in Fundraising and Nonprofit Management program. He received his PhD from Kent State University, where his dissertation focused on what people think and feel when asked for a gift.

Dr. Bartolini will present two sessions at the conference on Thursday: The Psychology of Philanthropy and Asking with Confidence. After his presentations, we will travel to The James Medical Center and you will be given a tour of the facility as if you were a donor so that you can hear how they phrase their pitch to philanthropists. Additional presentations will focus on how the OSU team managed their donor stewardship and special events.

Stay tuned for more details. Be sure you receive our email broadcasts and updates by signing up for our listserv!
