Your sponsorship will connect you to more than 170 non-profi t decision makers right here in the Golden Horseshoe. All event proceeds will benefi t the AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter so we can promote ethical and eff ective fundraising among our members.


For the first time since 2007, AFP Golden Horseshoe will be increasing its membership dues. Although the Chapter has been able to keep membership dues steady for a number of years, the increase is needed now to offset rising expenses and to continue to meet the expectations of fundraising professionals for expanded offerings in professional development.


CFRE International offers the only internationally-recognized baseline professional credential for philanthropic fundraising executives.  Why certify? Among some of the top reasons: certification grants you more credibility and it can improve career opportunities and advancement. 




Young Fundraisers: It’s perfectly normal to feel all the feelings in our jobs

This past Summer I returned from vacation bliss and checked my email. Among the several I had, one was from a donor requesting assistance with his mother’s legacy on her tombstone. I also received an email containing a wedding photo from a different newlywed donor who had been excited to share it with me.
