President's Message

Dear AFP Friends,


I hope you are staying out of this Texas heat! Many of us took a break from high temperatures by attending the July 30th happy hour at the Hotel Palomar to honor our new and recently renewed AFP members. Big thanks to Board member Mack Campbell for organizing all the details. Due to the great turnout, we plan to host another networking happy hour event in the fall.


If you are new to fundraising or need some quick CFRE credits, mark your calendar to attend the AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course, October 10th and 11th at Dallas Baptist University. The course is a joint effort of the Greater Dallas and Fort Worth Metro chapters of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, designed for persons with zero to four years' experience and offering a complete overview of the development function of an organization and the most current information and techniques. Click here for more information and to register. There is still time to receive an early bird discount or apply for a full or partial scholarship. Have your application in by September 13th.


The Greater Dallas Chapter's National Philanthropy Day Luncheon will be celebrated to coincide with the nationally recognized philanthropy day, Friday, November 15th. Join NPD Chair Kimberly Humphries and her hardworking committee as we celebrate excellence in our charitable giving community. You recently received an email from David Krause, chair of the NPD Awards committee, announcing the recipients we'll be honoring at our 28th annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon. Here is that list again, it bears repeating:

  • Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser - Forrest Hoglund
  • Outstanding Fundraising Executive - April Box Chamberlain
  • Outstanding Philanthropist - Lyda Hill
  • Outstanding Foundation - Andrea-Mennen Foundation
  • Outstanding Corporation - Alon USA Energy
  • Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy - Ariana Luterman
  • Special Recognition Award - Kent Skipper

Click here for sponsorship details and ticket information. A big thank you to our returning presenting sponsor KERA!


Do you know someone who would be a great member of the Dallas Chapter AFP Board, or maybe you would like to become more involved? Past President Melanie Perkins and the nominating committee sent out a call to service email out yesterday. Please consider completing the commitment form for consideration to serve on the 2014 Greater Dallas AFP Board, it's a great way to learn more about your community and your profession. 


Our membership numbers are climbing thanks to all of us sharing with our colleagues the opportunities available to AFP members. Together, we are becoming better fundraisers and I appreciate your support! I look forward to seeing you on August 28th at our entertaining and educational luncheon meeting on Communicating Your Mission Through Social Media.

Grateful for your work in our community,

Sue Bailey
