NAYDO Academy Philanthropy School Fundamentals

Each fundamental provides an overview of a financial development area and is geared toward volunteers; frontline, program, membership, and branch staff; and staff new to financial development. If your role has changed or you need a refresher, the fundamentals are for you.  

Sponsor of the 2022 Philanthropy School Fundamentals

2022 Fundamentals will be held in Tampa the first day of the conference, Wednesday, April 6, so you can be better prepared for the educational workshops and Hot Topics. Fundamentals are free if you are registered for the conference. Those not registered for the 2022 Conference can attend for a $50 fee, which also gives you special access to the Opening Reception and exhibits.
