Be part of the fundraising evolution

Nonprofits need to connect with industry leaders, and each other, to learn how technology can help unlock the world’s generosity in the ever-changing giving landscape. Together, we’ll uncover the ideas that will propel our sector forward.

Unite with innovative leaders

At Collaborative, the learnings you take away are important, but the way that you learn and truly “Collaborate” with the smartest in the industry, are just as valuable. Our interactive experiences offer a unique lens of learning to our community, allowing you to absorb content in new and compelling ways.  

Step outside of the box

Ignite your creativity at Collaborative’s unique venues – a concert hall, comedy club, and bowling alley. We believe that our best ideas happen when we step outside our daily routine and immerse ourselves in inspiration.

Join the Collaborative community

Collaborative creates an ongoing community, bringing together the most innovative nonprofits and sharpest minds in the industry. We provide year-long offerings, with our premier event in June, to connect professionals from similar cause sectors and organizational sizes throughout the year.

The Collaborative is an extension of Classy's approach to their customers; supportive, creative and inspiring. The conference is a great place to help develop your strategic approach, identify product enhancements you could be better leveraging, and connect with other inspirational leaders in the space.

All Hands and Hearts

The Classy Collaborative Conference is consistently one of the most useful, topical, and engaging conferences I attend… Classy brings in new forward thinking fundraisers and thought leaders… I always walk away with lots of action items that I can use immediately at my organization.

Empowerment Plan

The Collaborative was 10 times more than it even promised to be. The care, attention to detail, commitment to the industry, and organization that Classy brought to this unique conference blew me away. I was ready to buy tickets to next year’s Collaborative by the end of Day 1! I can’t wait to see what next year brings.
