    Gravyty's Top Sessions to Attend at CASE All Districts: Rethink

    Gravyty is looking forward to the 2022 edition of CASE All Districts Online Conference: Rethink. After last year's event, we are excited to see what this year has in store to provide fundraisers with best practices, trends, and opportunities to grow and learn throughout the advancement profession. 

    Gravyty at CASE All Districts 2022

    This year's event looks to offers a variety of speaker sessions and workshops that empower individuals and organizations to practice ethical fundraising through professional education, networking, research, and advocacy.

    Join 30,000+ fundraising professionals that receive our weekly Sunday newsletter with industry trends, tips, and analysis delivered right to your inbox

    Here are a couple of sessions from this year's lineup that we have our eyes on ahead of the conference:

    Analyzing Student Demographics to Drive Student Philanthropy

    Rethink student philanthropy as more than just a group of students who want to make a difference on campus before they graduate. Rethink student philanthropy as a precursor to alumni giving. According to CASE, "...It's a fact that students who make senior gifts are more likely to give as young alumni." How do we as advancement professionals gain greater student buy-in of “we take care of our own” before they leave home? This session delves into why it's important to know who the students are in order to build a culture of student philanthropy that can strengthen the overall giving program.

    THE SHIFT 2.0: The Synergy between NYU UDAR teams

    Two years ago, NYU initiated a strategic shift towards an interest-based approach to prospect assignment and development staff re-alignment. THE SHIFT allows fundraisers to engage with a greater number of prospects while better aligning donors’ interests with University’s priorities.

    THE SHIFT 2.0 is the result of two years of implementing policies and guidelines that are donor-centric and effective in reaching more prospects in impactful ways. The combined effort due to our teams working together constructively defined the effectiveness of the joint efforts of various subsystems acting in coordination.

    Measuring Engagement: A Key Performance Indicator Approach

    At Ohio State, engagement professionals and Business Intelligence / Data Science partners have developed a new tool to analyze engagement data that we believe will benefit the engagement industry. Successes from this work include:
    • An inclusive, stakeholder-centered definition of “meaningful engagement” that reflects our diverse and digital world
    • Improved data measurement consistency among engagement professionals across the organization
    • A key performance indicator process that can be applied to other projects (to ask “Why?” and not “What?”)
    • A dashboard that provides real-time engagement data to analyze impact

    What's next, next? Rethinking what we call "annual giving"

    Join a rapid-fire session with three industry leaders from different schools talking about the key trends, changes, and challenges in the space of what we call annual giving. During this session we'll not only talk about current issues in the field, but also about what is on the horizon and how to make sure our programs are ready for what's not just next, but "next next" as we rethink our field. Attendees will leave with ideas to apply to their program and tips for how to tackle their institution's challenge of alumni giving.

    Gravyty is thrilled for the opportunity to help bring you this year's conference, and look forward to seeing you there!
