President's Message

Dear AFP Friends,


Did you know that the AFP Dallas Chapter has 356 members! We have added 63 new members since January 1, 2013. If you want to network with a great group of fundraisers, you should join the Greater Dallas Chapter AFP. The benefits are well worth the membership cost.


June is a great month to join the Association of Fundraising Professionals! During the month of June, new Professional Members can receive $53 off the cost of membership.


This special discount is only available through the mail. Just attach this  to your new discount couponProfessional Membership application. We are making it as easy as possible for you. If you are already an AFP member, please share this information with others and encourage them to join us.


Professional Membership dues are $250 plus $50 for Chapter dues. Simply deduct $53 from the $300 (total amount) and pay $247 for your first year of membership. What a great deal, but it will only last through June 30th, so don't delay!


If you have any questions regarding the application or discount, please contact our chapter administrator Madeleine Crouch at or our Membership Chair Luanne Samuel at We're here to help you! 

Best regards,


Sue Bailey
