During this busy season, I hope you are making plans to attend our National Philanthropy Day celebration on November 12th! Over 500 fundraisers, philanthropists and guests will join us to celebrate our 2019 Honorees and the role we all play in building hope and changing the world!

As we approach the year end, your newly appointed board will undergo a strategic planning session, and it isn’t too late to provide feedback. Please complete our survey by clicking HERE before Friday, Nov. 1st. All participants will be entered into a raffle for a AFP membership, $50 Amazon gift card, or a $25 Starbucks card. The drawing will take place during our holiday luncheon on December 17th.
