    Education foundation leaders will convene at the 2023 NAEF National Conference to develop and enhance philanthropic, fundraising, leadership, and operational management skills so that we can properly serve our respective education communities.

    As the only nationally recognized professional organization dedicated to the development of education foundations, we invite you to join us on March 13-15, 2023, at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada to engage, support, and collaborate with us and to support over 20-million children served in 41 states across the nation.

    Engage with over 225 education foundation leaders from our membership of 645 education foundations of which 81% serve public education systems. Support over 180 education foundations who self-identify as an emerging and developing foundation. Collaborate with education foundation leaders, fundraisers, board members, and leaders of educational systems.

    As a corporate sponsor:

    • Network with attendees at two receptions with your corporate logo displayed throughout.
    • Have one-on-one discussions with existing and potential clients as an exhibit booth sponsor.
    • Conduct a demo, distribute promotional materials, and even hold a door prize for attendees.
    • Present and share your corporate message to education session attendees.
    • Put your corporate name and logo in front of every conference attendee.

    Contact the NAEF Team to build your support of education foundation leaders.
