    The integrity of your database is central to advancing your organization, but if you are unable to report on that data in meaningful ways, the data has little value. Aaron Rothberg, Blackbaud Certified Raiser's Edge Professional and Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator with 16 years’ experience in database administration, will host an interactive session to help you think about custom database design and reporting solutions for your organization. This session is for database administrators, staff with database/reporting responsibilities, or managers who seek a deeper understanding of how to get the most out of your database. CDOs and DODs are welcome to attend and are encouraged to send relevant staff.

    Some POVs on DAFs


    Thursday, November 1, 2018

    University of Massachusetts Club
    One Beacon Street
    32nd Floor
    Boston, MA 02108

    Panelists:

    Julie Smith-Bartoloni, Senior Director, The Boston Foundation
    Alicia Ianiere, Chief Advancement Officer, Pine Street Inn
    Tom Muldoon, CPA, Partner, AAFCPAs

    Moderated by Jodi Wolin, Vice President of Institutional
    Advancement, Boston Harbor Now


    Many of us have seen a surge in gifts from donors utilizing donor advised funds. This engaging panel will offer points of view on this new and widely used strategy by donors to manage their philanthropy. Panelists will also address the trends and consider the impact of this giving vehicle on non-profits and donors, from the points of view of a fund administrator, a non-profit organization, and an accountant. We all want to talk more about how to leverage these sorts of donations, but many in the development profession still have questions. This interactive session will engage and enlighten you on everything you wanted to know about DAFs … and more!
