It's Philanthropy Celebration Time in East Tennessee!
Yes, our 26th annual National Philanthropy Day celebration is around the proverbial corner, slated for Friday, Nov. 13, at the Knoxville Marriott. Your Great Smoky Mountain Chapter will be honoring some of East Tennessee's best organizations and individuals for their respective roles in making our community great. At this year's awards luncheon we are also proud to honor Dr. Joe Johnson with our inaugural Legacy Award for his lifelong work in fundraising and philanthropic causes.
There are many ways to participate, from event sponsorship to purchasing tables or individual tickets to this important community event. With every table purchase comes an opportunity to honor a donor, volunteer or employee with special recognition for their philanthropic contributions.
Along with all the networking and celebration, you can even take advantage of valuable learning opportunities through our concurrent morning workshops. For only $20/pp you can attend your choice of:
- “Focused Marketing: What is the Most Effective Message for Each of Your Constituencies?” presented by Dana Peterka, SCORE of Knoxville
- "Gamestorming: 101 Ways to Improve Your Fundraising," presented by Freddi Birdwell, CFRE; Kim Lauth, CFRE; and Sandy Rees, CFRE
