The purpose of the 2020 NASPA Student Affairs Fundraising Conference is to share and exchange strategies, ideas, and resources, and to discuss issues related to student affairs fundraising and external relations. The conference promotes an exchange of best practices. It is designed for professionals who currently have development responsibilities specifically in student affairs and for professionals with backgrounds and experience in either student affairs or development.
The 2020 NASPA Student Affairs Fundraising & External Relations Conference is sponsored by NASPA - Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education as a three-day professional development forum for professionals with specific fundraising, development, and donor communication responsibility for student affairs divisions. The primary audience includes prospective, aspiring and seasoned development professionals; new and seasoned student affairs professionals with roles connected to fundraising and external relations; and senior student affairs officers. The conference facilitates an exchange of strategies, ideas, and resources between participants regarding fundraising for student affairs. Conference educational sessions promote an exchange of best practices.
The conference is co-sponsored by the NASPA Student Affairs Fundraising and External Relations Knowledge Community (KC). The vision of the KC is to enable NASPA members to develop fundraising knowledge and skills to enhance programs and services for Student Affairs at their individual institutions. The KC provides a professional home within NASPA for professionals working in, or connected to, student affairs development and external relations. The KC provides senior student affairs officers with a place to connect for the latest fundraising trends and strategies.
