the venue…it’s not exactly glamping

DeVos Place is a premier convention center located in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Nestled beside the Grand River, the picturesque riverfront setting is the perfect backdrop for the networking and interactive experience of Cause Camp. 

DeVos Place is part of a vibrant downtown entertainment district featuring dining establishments, nightclubs, museums, and the 12,000 seat Van Andel Arena, all within walking distance. Immediately adjacent to DeVos Place you’ll find world-class accommodations available at the Four-Star Amway Grand Plaza Hotel and the Holiday Inn is a short stroll across the pedestrian bridge away. Both resorts offer block rate pricing for Cause Camp.

our mission

Chosen by Forbes as one of the must-attend nonprofit conferences, Cause Camp draws in the best of the best when it comes to nonprofit thought leaders. And we wouldn’t dare make you choose one speaker over another. We’re proud to put on a one-track, complete conference so you’re not missing out on anyone—or anything. Cause Camp doesn’t employ your typical breakout sessions, either. Attendees get the opportunity to chat with industry experts in our Meet the Experts Room, participate in meditation and yoga sessions, attend workshops and take tours of local facilities.

Attendees have ample time to take in the full Cause Camp experience and interact with fellow do-gooders, speakers, staff and exhibitors. Everyone who attends the conference is there to work with you to solve real issues facing your organization, from trivial to complex. Pretty good bang for your buck, huh?

attendee testimonial

“Cause Camp is far the best and most engaging and informative conference I’ve attended since becoming the leader of a non-profit organization. I left there positively inspired and motivated to change and we have done just that in this past year!”
