NEWS: The bbcon 2018 Track for Faith Communities | Get All the Details

August 31, 2018 Sharon Weston


For the first time ever, bbcon includes a series of sessions geared exclusively for Faith-focused clients!    The premier tech gathering for social good invites you to get inspired by trends, tech innovations and your own peers as you tackle the specific challenges you face as a fundraiser for the Faith. 

We are designing an unmatched experience just for you, led by thought leaders and experts working on the front lines with the Faith community.  Our sessions are developed with your unique needs and issues in mind—bbcon is packed with the most-relevant content for the social good community.

If you haven’t seen the list of bbcon breakout sessions, here’s a look at some of the exciting Faith-focused content lined up for you:

The Present and Future of Blackbaud Faith Solutions

This session will speak to the roadmap for our Faith clients, detailing and end-to-end solution and everything in-between—from Raiser’s Edge to Financial Edge to communications.  Plus, hear about our new church management solution coming soon!

Bridging Faith and Fundraising with Technology

Religious giving trends show signs of struggle, but there is hope.  While technology is not the only answer, by using potentially disruptive strategies, stewardship best practices, and prospecting, religious organizations and houses of worship can advance their missions.

Crowdfund Your Next Mission Project

Whether you are sending kids to camp or missionaries across the globe, crowdfunding taps into the popularity of the internet and social media to help your community of followers fund the projects critical to the mission of your church, synagogue or organization.

Manna or Forbidden Fruit – Digital Marketing in Ministry

The explosive growth in global technology has fueled a cultural revolution that faith leaders have struggled to come to grips with.  In this session, we’ll explore how you can wield the power of social media for good while guarding against its misuse.

The Spiritual Side of Development

This session is for development officers who serve in faith-based communities where most of their donors give from a faith conviction.  This session is also aimed at development officers who desire to learn how to care for the spiritual needs of donors, because they understand caring for donors is critical to their fundraising success.

There’s still time to register, and if you sign up by September 7, you avoid the late registration prices.  And don’t forget that in addition to this amazing faith-specific content, you also have full access to all our other sessions that will expand your vision, gear you up for new technology on the horizon and motivate you.  You will come away from bbcon with new relationships, knowledge and resources to achieve your mission’s goals.  We can’t wait to see you in Orlando October 9-11!
