Be assured that if you registered, you will receive a full refund within the next few weeks. ALSO, please know that we have every intention of bringing Tom Ahern to Nebraska - live and in person - in Spring 2021, if health directives allow. 


"Give and Gain" Series Program with Special Guest Speaker Tom Ahern

World renowned fundraising writer and trainer Tom Ahern is considered one of North America's leading authorities on donor communications.  He works with dozens of clients nationwide every year.  They include brand names like the Sierra Club and Save the Children as well as hospitals, universities, foundations and local charities.

In November 2016, the New York Times called Tom Ahern "one of the country’s most sought-after creators of fund-raising messages."  He specializes in applying the discoveries of psychology and neuroscience to theday-to-day business of attracting and retaining donors. He's authored five well-received books on that topic, with two more in the pipeline. Each year, he trains thousands of fundraisers internationally through conferences and webinars.

Dear Nebraska fundraising professional,

The first time I heard Tom speak in Omaha several years ago, his training was a game-changer for me. Not only has it given me confidence as a fundraiser, but donors respond when I follow Tom Ahern’s advice.  I can’t wait for you to meet him as he shares his insight. You’ll hang on every word. And if you go out and use his knowledge in your work, you’ll see results.  You do not want to miss this one!
