July Message from The VP of Business Development & Membership



As a valued member of our exclusive community of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders, you have unparalleled access to resources and opportunities designed to help your organization thrive in today’s dynamic environment. 

If you’re like most AZ Impact for Good members, you joined us to advance your organization’s growth and provide your team with exceptional professional development. That’s why I’m thrilled to invite you to the UNITE Nonprofit + Grantmaker Annual Conference, on August 15 in Mesa, AZ. 

This is not just another conference—it's a carefully curated experience tailored to inspire and empower you. We’re bringing together two extraordinary keynote speakers, offering 24 diverse breakout sessions, and providing the perfect environment for networking with your peers through exhibit booths and a lively after-conference mixer. It’s an opportunity to deepen your knowledge, forge new connections, and ignite innovative ideas. 

As you review your summer budget and plan for upcoming events, I encourage you to consider the UNITE Conference as a top priority. This event offers not only high-caliber educational sessions but also a chance for meaningful in-person interactions. 

I am especially excited about our Breakfast Keynote Speaker, Alaina G. Levine—a true force of nature! Alaina, known for her vibrant personality and inspiring presentations, is a renowned international speaker, award-winning entrepreneur, STEM career coach, TEDx speaker, and even a corporate comedian. Her engaging style and unique perspective promise to make her session a highlight of the day. Our Lunch Keynote SpeakerJohn Harper—a renowned leader in equitable systems change, brings extensive experience and commitment to advancing equity and will undoubtedly provide valuable insights and inspiration to all attendees.

For me, the most rewarding part of any conference is the chance to connect during those informal hallway conversations. You never know—your next big breakthrough might come from a chance encounter with a fellow “unicorn” who has the solution you’ve been searching for. 

And speaking of unicorns, you might just spot one at the conference! 

Don’t miss out on this exceptional opportunity to enhance your skills, expand your network, and be inspired. I look forward to seeing you there! 


All the best,
