Building leaders who fundraise and inspiring fundraisers who lead
As one of the largest AFP chapters in the world, Advancement Northwest is transforming the relationship between donors and fundraisers, building a more vital culture of philanthropy and stronger communities for us all. We believe the fundraising profession must rise to meet the highest standards of innovation and find creative solutions to help philanthropists make an even bigger impact in advancing the ever-growing needs that nonprofit organizations serve.
Be a session leader for a 2017 AFP Advancement Northwest program! We encourage newcomers and seasoned pros alike to lead monthly trainings or sessions at our annual Forum on Strategic Fundraising (June 2017). Learn more and consider submitting a proposal. The deadline for 2017 proposals was September 30, but we always welcome your ideas!
