MOTM2021 — Home Page

This is the home page for the 15th-Annual West Coast Meeting of the Minds Annual Giving and Advancement Services Conference.  Looking for the Midwest/Chicago version of the conference?  It’s here:

2021 is the 15th MOTM conference! Famous for its strong program content and affordability, the conference pivoted in 2020 from an on-site conference at Cal Poly-Pomona to a Zoom conference with delegates from the West Coast of the U.S. and well beyond.  With three program areas of concentration, including Annual Giving, Advancement Services/Data, and Digital Philanthropy, the conference offers sessions for new fundraising professionals, as well as seasoned program leaders.  

Signup for individual sessions is now open for team members from registered institutions. Here’s the at-a-glance schedule.

Here’s a special welcome from Meeting of the Minds Co-Founder Jill Boline:

The low conference fee is just $195 per institution – you can bring the whole team for a single registration.  Your institution only needs to register once.  About two weeks before the conference, registered institutions will receive instructions explaining how team members can RSVP for the individual conference Zoom sessions they’d like to attend.

You’re welcome to attend from anywhere in the world, but note that all session times are Pacific Time.  All registered institutions will receive a link to conference session video recordings, in the event team members can’t join us live.

And see you on the sofa!
