What's the difference between the Greater Dallas Chapter AFP Now! Campaign and AFP International's Be the Cause?
The answer is, 70% of your donation to this chapter's
AFP Now! annual fund campaign stays in Dallas and we send 30% to the AFP International Foundation. This means that we have more for scholarships and programs. The Greater Dallas AFP Chapter is a non-profit membership organization. Only $50 of membership dues paid to AFP International come back to our chapter. This means we need your support.
goal is a modest one of $8,500. Currently, we have donations and pledges for $4,275.07. The Dallas chapter is a large chapter with over 400 members, and yet to date only 28 of us have contributed to
If every member gives $25 to support our chapter, we will easily meet and even exceed our goal.
Anyone who makes a donation of any size by December 10, 2015 will be entered into a drawing to be held the next day at our annual Holiday Luncheon for an iPad Mini donated by Madeleine Crouch & Co., Inc.
Kudos to those members who have made a monthly credit card pledge. $10 or $20 a month is more manageable for many of us, but any amount will be gratefully received. We thank all those who have invested in their chapter by generously donating to
