A Message from our President
With spring being the time of renewal, this month Chapter President Julie Keller shares new member benefits announced at the recent AFP ICON.
AFP Member Moment
AFP Member Only Benefit: AFP has an incredible array of tools and templates on a variety of topics that help members get a jump start on new projects and missions. Start using these tools today!
A huge thank you to everyone who responded so generously to our BE the CAUSE kick off during the AFP International Conference. Because of your generous support, we received $110 in matching funds from Blackbaud and have already reached 75% of our $1,340 annual goal!
Please thoughtfully consider what AFP means to you personally and professionally and make a gift to BE the CAUSE today. Remember to select the AFP WI Northeast Chapter in the drop down menu so your gift is properly administered to our chapter.
When you donate you not only make AFP education possible, you help our local chapter as well. This annual appeal by the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy supports AFP education programs like the Chamberlain Scholarship, and affords our chapter the opportunity to receive a percentage of our gifts back to support our work in Northeast Wisconsin. 
Thank you for the great work you do every day to bring financial resources to vital community organizations in Northeast Wisconsin.

What does it mean to be a Ten Star Chapter?
The Ten Star award honors those chapters who have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in AFP's Strategic Plan.

Earning the Ten Star Chapter designation ensures that your AFP chapter performs specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy.

Your Northeast Wisconsin AFP Chapter has been a Ten Star Chapter for more than a decade!
