A robust program awaits attendees to the 2018 conference which will be held at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel, April 25-27, 2018.
ACGA Board Member and Washington-insider, Emil Kallina, will lead a symposium at the opening of the conference on the latest update on tax legislation and how it will impact our national philanthropic landscape. Our keynote address will address how an organizational “big idea” was implemented when Phil Knight, the founder of Nike, challenged the Oregon Health Science University to raise $500 million in two years to earn a matching gift from him. Pete Summerfeld will show us how OSHU’s gift planning efforts were an integral part of this fund raising success, and Dr. Tomasz Beer will share how this fund raising success is enabling great advances in the fight against cancer. Conference tracks offer topics for those new to the planned giving profession, seasoned professionals, and business officers.
