Peer to Peer Advanced Speaker Spotlight: DJ Hampton
On November 4 and 5, NonProfit PRO is hosting its annual peer-to-peer fundraising conference: Peer to Peer Advanced. Taking place in the heart of Philadelphia, attendees will gain a wealth of knowledge on advanced and innovative peer-to-peer tactics and learn how to strategize for future peer-to-peer programs, learning how to create sustainable programs that will not only engage fundraisers, but retain them, too.
During the session titled, “Why I Break S*)&+ to Make My Constituents Happy,” DJ Hampton will describe his method of “breaking everything” in order to turn around March of Dimes revenue production.

There, he led a team focused on individual giving ($1.2 billion in annual support) and launched $1 billion in initiative and endowment campaigns across the worldwide United Way system.
After United Way, DJ joined the ALS Association as the senior VP of development. He led the association’s national development team focused on doubling network-wide resources over 5 years.
