YMCA of Salt Lake City uses DonorPro

Virtual Conference Accessibility Pays Off

September 27, 2013


Thought Leadership and Training Webinars Boosted Attendance at DonorPro's 2013 Users' Conference 


September 27, 2013 -- Pittsburgh, PA -- Hundreds gathered in online meeting rooms for DonorPro's 2013 "Power Your Purpose" Virtual Users' Conference last week.


The three day event brought the nonprofit software users together to hear Thought Leaders present on a wide range of topics including talent cultivation, grassroots fundraising campaigns, branding, nonprofit trends, and social media best practices for nonprofits.  


The largest number of executives turned out for Forbes Funds President, Kate Dewey, who delivered insightful remarks on nonprofit trends to look for in the next five years. DonorPro Power Users  enthusiastically logged in to learn more about the new product offering, DonorPro MerchantServices, and to get a closer look at the forthcoming release of DonorPro10.


Hosting the 2013 conference virtually was a change from the 2012 Users' Conference which was held at the Heinz History Center in downtown Pittsburgh. “The goal was to create greater accessibility to training and thought leadership for our global client base who don't necessarily have the funds to attend a live show every year. Based on early feedback, it seems going virtual worked really well!" said Roy Cheran, Vice President of Marketing & Sales at DonorPro.


June Huilit from Ohio-based Viola Starzman Free Clinic commented, "I really liked this setup, it saved me time and money and I enjoyed logging in and listening right on my desktop."
