Nonprofits wanted for area fundraising association
July 24, 2012 at 2:24 a.m.
The Nonprofit Network of the Golden Crescent is seeking organizations and individuals who would like to form an area chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
A minimum of 15 members is needed to start a chapter and annual dues are $100 for the first year, then $250 per year after that.
The 50-year-old AFP is a national organization with about 30,000 members.
The association provides weekly newsletters and other resources, board and volunteer recruitment, education and motivation ideas, and board succession planning tools that could benefit local agencies, according to the group's website.
Leaders of nonprofit agencies in the Golden Crescent who are interested in forming a local AFP chapter should contact Dennis Brown at 361-578-0591, Sandra Neeley at 361-574-7127 or Kathy Hunt, network facilitator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
