The AFP Blog
Every year at the AFP Golden Horseshoe National Philanthropy Day event, we are reminded of the passionate people in our community who make philanthropy possible.
The volunteer-led AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter is looking for fundraising professionals like you to join one of our 2017 committees. As a committee member, you can contribute your skills and expertise or gain valuable new experiences you may not get in your current job.
Every time KCI’s Marnie Spears speaks to our Chapter, there is a keen interest from the fundraising community in our region. This year’s “The Changing Face of Philanthropy” presentation was no different. Marnie shared her insights with a packed room of fundraisers and friends, bringing to light the issues our sector faces and how we can push past them.
Finding your next fundraising job can be a difficult process when you are unsure of the type of job you would like to get.
It’s a new year so that means it’s time to look ahead to see what trends will shape charities in 2016.
Getting a head start on 2016 is the team behind Nonprofit Content Marketing 2016: Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends. Produced by Content Marketing Institute in association with Blackbaud and sponsored by FusionSpark Media, the sixth annual content marketing survey includes insights from more than 400 nonprofit marketers in North America.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is certainly one of the busiest times of the year for charitable organizations. According to Imagine Canada, this holiday season Canadians are expected to give $5 billion to charities. In fact, 40% of all funds donated this year will be given over this period.
Being an AFP Golden Horseshoe member has its privileges. It offers you many opportunities to connect, engage, and grow within the profession. It also offers a wealth of information on a “members only” resource centre that you can find on www.afpnet.org
The AFP Resource Center features a comprehensive "Hot Topic" section of key fundraising areas that members have identified as being most in demand. Recently added to the site are two of the biggest issues in fundraising today: industry benchmarking and diversity.
