President's Message
Dear Chapter Members,

Happy March! I hope your spring fundraising season is off to a great start. Here are some key events and deadlines happening in our chapter this month:

  • We're now accepting nominations for National Philanthropy Day honorees. This is a great opportunity to celebrate and recognize donors, volunteers, and staff members who have and continue to make an impact within your organization and for the DFW community as a whole. Learn more about nomination categories, requirements, and tips for submitting a successful nomination on our website. Nominations are due no later than Monday, April 10.
  • In addition to our monthly luncheon on March 22, we're hosting our first Emerging Leaders gathering for the year on March 23 at Ida Claire in Addison. Learn more and register here.

  • Don't forget, the early bird deadline to register for the DFW Philanthropy Conference is March 31. Ten scholarships are available, which cover the cost of registration. Learn more here.
