About 501(c)onference

Our annual conference reveals the tools nonprofits need to put strategy into action and accelerate impact. Join us for a day of inspiring stories, concrete best practices, and interactive sessions that will help reenergize your team and set you up for success.  

The 501(c)onference is known for connecting and energizing leaders, and co-creating opportunities and partnerships. This year, as organizations navigate a variety of challenges, we are focusing on common ground and shared values, while embracing the chaos of our current times as an opportunity for creative solutions and better results.  Keynote and breakout speakers are leaders in their field and will share tactical tools and examples that will help attendees become catalysts for change and growth within their organizations.
