A Message from our President
With fall upon us, Chapter President Julie Keller shares what our chapter has to offer the next few months and details of a new member benefit available through AFP.
Exclusive Tools and Templates to Advance Your Mission!
Do you know your membership includes access to a wide variety of tools and templates that can help you get ahead on department projects? You can find everything from job descriptions to prospect research best practices. Start using these tools today!
A huge thank you to everyone who has responded so generously to our 2019 BE the CAUSE campaign so far. Because of your generous support, we are just $25 away from our $1,340 annual goal!
You may be thinking, "What does reaching our goal do for us?" It allows a larger portion of our contributions to be given directly to our chapter. Recently, we received $335 from the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy thanks to your generous support of the 2018 BE the CAUSE campaign. This grant was made possible because our members and friends of our chapter helped us reach our fundraising goal last year. This grant will support our chapter’s education programming as a direct return on your investment in BE the CAUSE.
There is still time to make a gift for the 2019 BE the CAUSE campaign! Please help us reach our goal and receive a percentage of your gift back to our chapter again next year. Giving is easy ! Be sure to select the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter so it finds it way back to us.

Congratulations, Lindsay!
