Blackbaud to Host First-Ever Food Bank Summit

Registration is now open for the free, virtual event 

Blackbaud has teamed up with hjc, a digital fundraising agency and Blackbaud partner, to host our first-ever Food Bank Summit. We are working with food bank leaders to curate an interactive, educational and fun-filled 3 days. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring this amazing group of organizations together. The work food banks are doing to support their communities across the country is essential; our hope is that this forum will bring trends and best practices to the forefront of the discussion around how to best achieve each organization’s mission,” said Dale Strange, president and general manager, Nonprofit Solutions, Blackbaud.  

The Food Bank Summit will take place as a virtual event July 21–23. Speakers from eight different food banks from across North America will host six sessions covering a variety of top-of-mind topics, including donor retention, virtual events, virtual food drives, digital engagement, data-driven fundraising and much more.  

Four reasons for food bank practitioners to attend: 

  1. You will hear from peers at LA Regional Food Bank, Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Central Texas Food Bank, City Harvest and more. 

  1. You will be able to attend incredible sessions with content designed to inspire you and provide actionable takeaways. 

  1. You will see the findings from Blackbaud and hjc’s Food Bank Fundraising Survey, which will share insights on the impact of COVID and what that means for the future of food bank fundraising.  

  1. And, it is FREE!  

And there’s reason to attend even if you are NOT a Food Bank. COVID made every nonprofit an emergency fundraising organization. The conversations around data, analytics, gifts of all sizes, and how to come out of these challenging times even stronger are relevant no matter what organization you work with. 

Register today to be part of the experience. And, if you haven’t completed our Food Bank Fundraising Survey, please do, and receive a $20 Amazon gift card!
