Make meaningful connections with colleagues by volunteering

We all appreciate what a powerful force volunteers can be. Without them, many of the organizations we serve as fundraisers could not do the amazing work they do every day. The same is true for AFP Advancement Northwest – a volunteer-led organization that offers trainings, conferences, mentoring, career support and more to thousands of people representing more than six of every 10 nonprofits across Washington state. Here are a few of the ways you can get involved.

Serve on one of the following committees:

  • Education and Professional Development: Gather information from members about desired trainings speakers and help plan our annual calendar of workshops, seminars and more.

  • Membership: Support the ongoing work we do to make sure we’re meeting current members’ needs and recruit new members.

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access: Help us continue our work to make sure that AFP Advancement Northwest upholds the highest standards of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access.

  • Philanthropy: Looking for a committee where you can practice fundraising techniques? This is the place for you! Volunteers in the philanthropy committee solicit gifts from individuals as well as companies to support the programs offered through Advancement Northwest.

  • External Relations: Do you like writing? Or interviewing? Or data? Then join the committee that creates and distributes communication and marketing materials to internal and external Advancement Northwest audiences.

  • National Philanthropy Day: Play a role in planning and producing our National Philanthropy Day luncheon – one of the largest events of its kind in the country.

  • Forum on Strategic Fundraising: Help execute the two-day regional conference with on-site event support. Interested in more in-depth conference planning? We will need a strong volunteer force for the 2018 Forum, please contact us to get your name on the list, we will reach out after completing this year's event.
