Chapter Update - November 30, 2017
December Annual Meeting & Educational Luncheon
On the Table for Fundraisers

The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s On the Table events in October started many conversations and brought thousands of people together with a common goal of improving our community. Join us for the Fundraiser version: what are the challenges we face in our profession, what can be our common goals for improvement, what else should be On The Table? Our program will be highly interactive and facilitated by AFP members.

On Philanthropy: Take That, La-La Land
As Weather Turns Cool, Milwaukee Philanthropy Warms Up

When you’re from LA, Milwaukee culture can be disorienting.

Ask John Utz. Days after moving from Southern California, Associated Bank’s executive VP grew suspicious of Milwaukeeans. “People were being so helpful…I kept trying to figure out what their angle was. In LA, everyone acts in their best interest; people here do things because it’s the right thing to do.”

AFP Foundation Be the Cause – Join us in 2017!
Our efforts continue to reach our chapter goal for the AFP Foundation’s Be the Cause campaign. Member participation is crucial and all gifts – no matter the size – are important in support the professional development efforts within our profession.

Our chapter members who have made gifts and pledges thus far and taken us to 68% of our goal. Thank you! Achieving this goal is easy when many take part – can you help us get there?
