“Everything in life goes back to basics.” – Kon Gracie


For the first time ever, we are reaching out to the AFP Canada community for speaker proposals for Fundraising Day 2019.


This Fundraising Day is all about going Back to Basics – and when we say that, we don’t mean fundraising for dummies! We mean we want to root ourselves in the foundations of fundraisingthe best practices, the old ideas that have become new again, and the simplest approaches that drive the best donor experiences, and the best results.

New in 2019:
A Summit for Senior Leaders, offering an opportunity for Senior Leaders to join for a morning, afternoon or full day of facilitated discussions on the big topics you are grappling with. If you have a topic idea or are a Senior Leader that would like to facilitate a discussion please let us know.


If you want to share your knowledge, passion & ideas on this topic with your fellow fundraisers, then please submit your proposal to speak at Fundraising Day 2019.


Date: May 30, 2019
Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building, Toronto, Ontario
Submission Deadline: Friday, November 16, 2018


Fundraising Day is an accessible conference for fundraisers of any experience level, a playground for new ideas, and a lot of fun!


If you have any questions, please email Stacey Wright at or call 416-941-9212 x221.


Thank you for considering submitting to Fundraising Day 2019 – I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
