Mark Your Calendars!

The MIE National Fundraising Conference 2020 and Voices Media Training is scheduled for Wednesday, July 15 through Friday, July 17, in Boston!

We have lined up two of the best-known and most skilled fundraising and communications consultants to headline this year’s conference –

Communications guru
Tom Ahern, who wowed everyone when he spoke at our conference in 2012, is back!  In his Thursday morning plenary, Identity-based Fundraising: What Six Years of Research Revealed, Tom will share the latest info from psychology and marketing to help us prepare more effective donor-centered communications.

Tom will also lead a break-out session on writing a powerful case for support that will help us break through to all justice-loving people who would be willing to give to us if we answered better the question, “Why should I give you my hard-earned money?”



“Content was GREAT! Going to use much of what was discussed in my organization.  Loved his focus on emotions and words and their power in fundraising.”  Comment about Tom’s presentation from a 2012 evaluation

Then, Andy Robinson will open Friday morning with a plenary presentation on Mobilizing Your Board to Raise More Money – If your board isn't raising all the money it could -- indeed, if you're board isn't raising any money at all -- you're not alone. Join us as we try out the toolbox you can use to better engage your board. This will be an interactive session, so come prepared to participate!

Andy Robinson ( provides training and consulting for nonprofits in fundraising, board development, marketing, earned income, planning, leadership development, facilitation, and train-the-trainer programs. He specializes in the needs of organizations working for human rights, social justice, artistic expression, environmental conservation, and community development. Many of us have come to know him through his excellent book, Train Your Board (And Everyone Else) to Raise Money.

Andy will also do a breakout session on Making the Ask.

Of course, we are planning a full range of break-out sessions that will help us all to most effectively move forward out of the current situation to strong and effective fundraising post-crisis.

Registration will begin approximately April 15.
