Call for Presentations
2023 NAYDO Conference on YMCA Philanthropy


At NAYDO, our mission is to inspire and strengthen the philanthropic culture of Ys. We do this through a myriad of educational opportunities throughout the year as well as our annual conference on philanthropy. Our intended impact is that all YMCAs embrace a culture of giving to develop and sustain abundant resources to meet their community needs.

Our goal is to have our educational efforts align with the goals of our Philanthropy Alliance members: Y-USA, Y-Canada,
Y-Mexico and YMCA North American Network. Members of the NAYDO Council Impact Committee have identified topics in each educational track for priority consideration at each year's conference.


Have a success story you would like to share? Submit your workshop idea through NAYDO's Call for Presentations process or contact NAYDO Virtual Learning Director Kristen Obaranec to suggest a topic for one of the Educational Tracks but do not want to be a presenter.

New in 2023! Two new educational tracks are Operations & Philanthropy and Grants & Government Funding. Please review all tracks on the form and choose the Educational Track that best fits your session. Preference will be given to workshops that address the identified topics in each of the track categories.

Presenters for the NAYDO Conference on YMCA Philanthropy are selected by the NAYDO Conference Planning Team based on recommendations from the conference track deans. Presenter selection normally takes place in early summer.
