Big Ten Fund Raisers Institute—Registration and Hotel

“BTFRI is by far one of the more informative and comprehensive development conferences that I have attended in my career. It was great to be surrounded by seasoned professionals who showed passion for their work in a focused setting well-suited for intensive dialogue on fundraising topics beneficial to any organization regardless of size.”

Floyd Atkins Jr.

"This conference was amazing. Learning and talking with top leaders in our profession gave me the tools to make an immediate impact for my university. I would recommend this conference to anyone in the fundraising profession, especially those in the leadership role."
