AFP ICON—The World’s No. 1 Conference for Fundraising Professionals—Is Back

The next AFP ICON/AFP ICON VIRTUAL will be held Monday-Wednesday, June 28-30, 2021, both IN Minneapolis AND Online!

So much has changed in the past year. You know what hasn't?

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and AFP ICON is still here to give you all the fundraising training, trends, and meaningful connections you need to make more impact.

AFP ICON VIRTUAL will return June 28-30, 2021, no matter what. And we’re planning to safely hold an in-person conference because we know how valuable and powerful that experience can be.

Get ready for three unforgettable days, together as one fundraising community.
