Bridge to Integrated Marketing & Fundraising Conference

July 27-29, 2022

After two years in cyberspace, the Bridge conference is returning to the Gaylord in 2022, and team MKDM will be there! We’re looking forward to taking in two days of case studies and insights in cutting-edge direct response fundraising strategy from nonprofits and peer agencies.

We’re also looking forward to sharing some of our own. Along with clients Alisa Borland and Peter Dean of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, MKDM’s Eliza Slone will detail the strategies and tactics behind the organization’s monthly giving success in Million Dollar Year: How Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Grew Sustainer Revenue by 50% in 2021.


Nonprofit Technology Conference


April 11-13, 2018
New Orleans, LA

In a field that moves at lightning speed, the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) is the Usain Bolt of associations for nonprofits: mindbogglingly nimble, original, and oh so cool. We’d say that also describes NTEN’s annual conference, NTC, an all-you-can-eat buffet for nonprofit techies, a must-attend for multichannel fundraisers, and a rollicking good time for all.

If you’re planning on attending, MKDM’s Matt Hepler and Genni Cox would love to connect with you in New Orleans—and you can keep up with them @mkdm on Twitter, and follow along with other attendees via hashtag #18ntc.
