Fall is here. I smell it in the air, see it in the tree color change, and feel the delightful breeze outside. It is also a time of movement for us fundraisers. We begin to write those end of year appeals, put on fantastic special events, and wrap up proposals. It is also an eventful season for your AFP Board members and volunteers. We are putting on our biggest event of the year – National Philanthropy Day.
National Philanthropy Day®, November 15, acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. And, each year AFP honors individuals and groups who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities and the world. We will be honoring inspiring individuals and organizations on this day and would love for you to be in attendance at this moving luncheon. Please register today. You also have the opportunity to honor one of your volunteers/donors at your table this year. If you are a table sponsor, you will be given the privilege of honoring this person in the program and with a table gift. Find more information on the NPD page of the website.
We are also wrapping up our Every Member Campaign. Remember,
1 – Your gift to the AFP Foundation strengthens the future of fundraising;
2 – Giving to the AFP Foundation is an opportunity to “give back,” and “pay it forward;”
3 – Working together, we can impact the profession;
4 – Giving to the AFP Foundation delivers value to chapters and their members; and,
5 – Giving to the AFP Foundation supports your own chapter.
We are close to meeting our goal and need your help in succeeding. Please make your contribution on the website. Thank you so much for making us the best chapter we can be!
See you soon!
Oshana Watkins is President of the AFP Triangle Chapter.
