What is there to do in Philadelphia?
The better question is “what isn’t there to do in Philadelphia?” In 2015, The New York Times named Philadelphia the #3 World Travel Destination. There are so many great things to do (we just hope you can hold off your exploration until the conference finishes each day!)!

What about the conference app?
Details coming soon.

How is this different from DonorPerfect training options?
We're bringing together industry experts from around the nation to speak about ways you can improve your fundraising success. Several of the sessions will allow you to provide your feedback on the latest features that we just created before it’s released to beta testing! The majority of the sessions are led by DonorPerfect staff. It’s also an invaluable time to network with other fundraising professionals to share best practices, tips, and success stories.
