Don't Delay, Nominate Today!

An awards nomination is tops on a list of 45 easy ways to cultivate high value donors, according to article in Fundraising Success Magazine. At AFP SEWI we could not agree more!

Show appreciation for all that your donors and volunteer do for your organization by nominating them for a National Philanthropy Day (NPD) award.

100 Years of Giving

I just took my old work shoes to the resale shop. Yeah, I could have chucked them in my back closet. But I knew somebody out there would want them, and I knew I'd get a receipt for a little tax deduction.  I wouldn't save a lot -- but, hey, every little bit helps, right?

The AFP Membership Fee Yields a High ROI
According to long-time member

"I am proud to be an AFP-Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter member because I value ongoing professional education. The chapter gives a convenient and consistent way to fulfill my educational needs. I always come away from a chapter event with a best practice to implement as soon as I return to the office. Most of all, the chapter introduced me to the CFRE, which gave my career a boost and me a shot of confidence which has lasted to this very day. I highly recommend development professionals to join AFP. The dividends it yields far outweigh the membership fee."
