The only event just for healthcare philanthropy executives

Now in its ninth year, Leading Forward is designed exclusively for chief development officers and senior operations leaders in healthcare philanthropy.

  • Brainstorm with peers about your biggest challenges in small-group facilitated conversations
  • Strengthen your network for professional advice and ongoing support
  • Learn how healthcare CEOs envision the future of philanthropy from some of Modern Healthcare's most influential people
  • Take home ideas to make an immediate impact on your organization
  • Earn CFRE credit toward certification or recertification
Your safety is our top priority, so we will be requiring either proof of Covid vaccination or a negative test result to attend Leading Forward.
