We partnered with the Bridge to Integrated Marketing & Fundraising Conference which is produced by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Washington DC Metro Area Chapter (AFP DC) and the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW). FAR built the entire track on Fundraising by the Numbers that is being offered at the Bridge Conference!

Our partnership with this flagship event entitles FAR members to register for the 2021 Virtual Bridge Conference at the member rate of $299 - a $100 savings!

While FAR’s members cover finance, HR and IT - and each one of those sectors touches the organization’s staff of fundraisers and direct marketers - we focussed on finance for the Bridge Conference. What an opportunity to improve communications between finance and the fundraising, development and direct marketing staff!

Bridge has 12 timely and relevant tracks, providing 72 live and simulive sessions. When you register, you can attend any session being offered. In fact, you might want to forward this onto your appropriate staff! In the meantime, take a look at the sessions FAR developed for finance staff up to the CFOs!
