With the current unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation, the only responsible choice is to alter course on this year’s gathering.

We are confident the best approach is to reschedule WCFC2020.  We’ve reached out to our key people and are working on delivering a stellar event in mid-September.

We will update you in the next few days.

Meanwhile, our speakers and partners are offering an exclusive series of articles, videos, webinars and other materials to help you keep your fundraising skills sharp.
