The WCFC2019 programme details will be finalised in the first quarter of 2019. Meanwhile, the WCFC2018 programme appears below as an example of the quality speakers and content we will offer.
WCFC is teaming up with CAGP in a big way this year! They’re bringing their sell-out Gift Planning Fundamentals course to Saskatoon for the first time ever on June 11th, 2019, the day before #WCFC2019 begins. It’s a fantastic way to super-charge your professional development while conserving your travel budget! Plus, #WCFC2019 delegates receive an exclusive, incredible discounted price of $400 for this best-in-class course. Instructions on reserving your special price will be included in your WCFC registration confirmation email.
Participation in WCFC2018 may assist you in learning or reviewing concepts covered on the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) examination as detailed on the Test Content Outline provided by CFRE International. CFRE International does not sponsor or endorse any educational programmes and WCFC2018 was not developed in conjunction with CFRE International.
WCFC is produced by The Common Good fundraising agency.
As one of Canada’s leading boutique fundraising consulting firms, The Common Good works across Canada and internationally. The Common Good has a significant client base in Western Canada, reflecting the roots of the firm’s principals, David Kravinchuk and Christal Pshyk. Working intensely in the region led David and Christal to recognize the lack of an annual, national-scope professional development and networking opportunity for fundraising professionals in Western Canada.
After more than a year of consultation with industry leaders, late-night musings with mentors, hallway meetings with conference colleagues, almost infinite favours-called-in, incalculable hours of number-crunching at the kitchen table and one giant leap of faith, WCFC was born.
