As Scholarship Chair of the AFP Greater Dallas Chapter, I want to make sure that everyone is aware of the four scholarship opportunities available for members and potential members. These scholarships offer discounted AFP membership dues and educational opportunities to enhance the fundraising knowledge of all who participate. Each of the four scholarships is unique and tailored to the fundraising legacy of the person for whom the scholarship is named. 

 

And remember, a portion of your AFP Now! donation goes to help fund these scholarships, so please donate to this campaign today to ensure these scholarships will continue to be available.

 

To learn more about these scholarships, visit the AFP Greater Dallas Chapter website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at Deborah.Montonen@LaunchAbility.org .

 

Sincerely,

Deborah Montonen
