Your AFP Alaska Chapter will host in-depth quarterly conversations designed for development professionals with the CFRE credential and those with three or more years of experience.

AFP PM—Philanthropy Matters is a series of discussions about the latest research, trends and ideas in philanthropy and development. You can earn CFRE Certification credits for each one-hour discussion. Professionals in Fairbanks will be able to participate via Skype.

Please join us for the first gathering on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 5:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m.

In Anchorage, we’ll meet in the Community Room at Hearth Artisan Pizza, 1200 W. Northern Lights Blvd. (connected to Middle Way Café).

In February, we’ll discuss Rights Stuff: Fundraising’s Ethics Gap and a New Theory of Fundraising Ethics, a white paper by Ian MacQuillin (published September 2016 by Rogare, the fundraising think tank). Our conversation will cover trustism, relationship management, donor-centrism and the service of philanthropy.

Here’s the link to the paper we’ll be discussing:
