The Association of Fundraising Professionals 54th Annual International Conference took place in San Francisco April 30 - May 2, 2017. Since I live right outside the city and had never been to the conference before I thought I would. I bought a one-day pass for the Monday of the conference. It started at 8am so I woke up at 5am to get there in time for the first session. Kelli, who is one of my favorite fundraising people, and also a dear friend came with me.
The conference sessions were not as useful or interesting as I had hoped, but for many the AFP Conference is a great way to push your professional development into high gear. I spent the majority of my day at the AFP International Conference in the Market-Place learning about and interacting with new products and technology for the Fundraising sector. There were some things that I am so excited about that I am already suggesting them to my clients. Join me as I highlight the top five products I found at this year’s AFP International Conference.
#3 - Tiltify
Tiltify is the first crowdfunding site designed to turn your livestreams into a charity fundraiser. Tiltify turns your gaming streams on Twitch, Youtube or Hitbox into a charity fundraiser! This platform allows users to build campaign pages where it is easy to create rewards, take donations, explain your schedule and goals, and share with your friends. If you’re still confused, check out this video that the folks at Tiltify put together to better explain the process.
I like Tiltify because this is cutting edge technology that will make your charity fundraising gala fresh and innovative. Tiltify allows social media influencers to broadcast your event and fundraising goals to their audience, further expanding your reach and exceeding your fundraising goals. Tiltify is a great tech-forward way that will impress and bring in millennials and next generation donors.
