About the Program:

FPRA’s annual Nonprofit Day is an opportunity for Southwest Florida’s philanthropic organizations – and those interested in learning more about SWFL’s charity landscape – to gather and learn from local industry experts on topics to enhance your community reach and impact.

While your organization likely gets a boost in interest during the “holiday season” between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, fundraising happens year-round. Nonprofit Day will provide tools on how to extend the giving feeling year-round and combat challenges such as donor fatigue, communication issues and ever-changing tax laws.

This year’s Nonprofit Day theme, “The Giving Season,” will focus on providing attendees usable information on how to enhance current campaigns and leverage holiday public relations for the rest of the year.
