In-Person Seminars

For decades, the nation’s top fundraising professionals have relied on Sharpe Group’s in-person seminars to build and manage successful programs.

Our professional development programs offer something for all gift planning and development professionals at any level of experience. The introductory course delivers the groundwork for those who are new to the industry, while our more advanced seminars are great for those looking to expand or refresh their knowledge.

These in-person seminars allow for a deeper dive into the world of gift planning and development, more interaction with our expert presenters and invaluable opportunities to network with peers in your field.

Sharpe Virtual Academy

Sharpe Virtual Academy seminars provide our top-notch education for gift planning and development officers of all levels of experience. Established in 2020, we condensed the content from our in-person seminars and presented it virtually. In response to the overwhelming popularity, we are continuing to offer this valuable educational tool.

Registration is affordable, and recordings are available to registrants for 30 days after the seminar (for an added fee), regardless of attendance, so Sharpe Group education is accessible for any schedule or budget.

All three Sharpe Virtual Academy modules contain four sessions that are presented over the course of two days. Each day will include two hours of live presentation by the same expert consultants who teach our in-person seminars, and participants will be able to ask questions during Q&A times.
