Advancement Resource Hub

Training, resources, and experts you can count on right now.

Within the ever-shifting fundraising landscape, advancement teams across the nation are grappling with some crucial questions:

"How do we navigate a hybrid fundraising world?”

“How can we maximize the best of both in-person and digital engagement?”

“What is the future of in-person events?”

The rapidly changing environment compels fundraising teams to stay connected to emergent practices, the latest thinking, and tried and true best practices.

Membership with Academic Impressions provides all of these resources and more. Each year we create dozens of new development opportunities to address the most pressing issues facing advancement shops and enable you to connect to hundreds of your peers around the country. Members get access to a large, expanding collection of resources that you can put directly in the hands of your advancement professionals.

You’ve looked to us for nearly 20 years for the most comprehensive and practical advancement and leadership training available. If you're not a member yet, now is a great time to subscribe your team or your entire advancement operation.

Your Account Manager is your strategic partner dedicated to both maximizing membership adoption and ensuring its impact. We are invested in the success of your team and we customize our approach to your professional growth and development.

We understand that access to membership does not equal adoption, and adoption does not necessarily result in impact. Your Account Manager will collaborate with your team to ensure they engage with resources in a strategic manner, which will ultimately result in a lasting impact on their growth.

Access: At the start of the partnership, your Account Manager will work with you to plan launching membership resources to all assigned users. They will collaborate with you on a communication plan, conduct virtual open houses with your users, and ensure those with membership access have the resources they need to succeed.

Adoption: Throughout the course of your membership, your Account Manager will monitor usage and help identify professional development opportunities that will engage your team.

Impact: With the help of stakeholders, your Account Manager will deploy one or more impact surveys over the course of the membership term to help you understand what impact professional development has had on individuals. We measure satisfaction and gain an understanding of what your users have learned by engaging with Academic Impressions professional development opportunities.
