Thank you so much to the Golden Horseshoe Chapter, the scholarship committee and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy for enabling me to attend the 2014 International Fundraising Conference. It was an amazing conference and a wonderful opportunity to meet so many colleagues. I learned so much from my peers, and it was eye-opening to see so many fundraising professionals in once place. I would definitely attend another International Conference in the future! -Maggie Woo, Chamberlain Scholar 2015
The Fundamentals of Fundraising course provided me with the big-picture understanding of the profession I needed to frame my experience and help me land a job. The bursary made the exchange the best bargain I’ve made in years! - Cynthia Forbert, Fundamentals of Fundraising Bursary Recipient 2016.
