Announcing the 1st Annual
What if we had a space where we could dialogue with values-aligned visionaries, form alliances, and dream of liberation? What if we created safe spaces where we could talk about money and the insecurities surrounding the financial sustainability of our organizations? What if we had a space to strategize with experts to find innovative, collective solutions?
This fall, Acceleraise is convening its network of nonprofit partners from across the nation for a week of learning, networking, and collaboration in the areas of fundraising and equitable philanthropy. The inaugural Acceleraise Alliance Conference in San Pedro, Belize will equip partners with the knowledge, skills, and networks to deepen their impact.
Acceleraise partners will have the chance to:
Gain insights from seasoned philanthropy experts and thought leaders.
Network with fellow professionals who share your passion and commitment.
Cocreate innovative approaches to drive positive change within the world of philanthropy.
"The Acceleraise Team does it again! Abundance (versus scarcity) is their modus operandi. I am beyond excited for this opportunity to connect, learn and dream with other imaginaries about growing and collaborating in our work. The power of the Acceleraise network is expanding and I can't wait to see what's next."
— Adrinda Kelly, Black Education for New Orleans
