The NCDC Conference and Exposition is the top conference for those in the ministry of fundraising. For forty-eight years, we have gathered as a fundraising community to network, learn, share, play, and pray with our colleagues.
Our conference attendee community includes development directors, executives, department directors, and staff from religious organizations from around the United States and the world. Their development efforts support the ministries of religious communities of men and women, social service agencies, shrines, schools, parishes, dioceses, seminaries, and international relief agencies.
Collectively, our attendees raise hundreds of millions of dollars annually to support Catholic missions. The NCDC conference is the top opportunity for these organizations and individuals to connect with one another in the context of fundraising as a ministry.
The Conference program is a well-balanced mix of general sessions, breakout sessions and discussion groups with top names in the fundraising field, in addition to plenty of opportunities for attendees to connect and discuss with other fundraisers. The exhibit hall provides a collaborative environment with the top service providers in the field, who have decades of experience working with Catholic organizations.
And at the heart of the Conference is daily Eucharistic celebrations, where we gather as a community to focus on why we do what we do: because we are called to this ministry of fundraising.
