"So you want me to do what?
So come join us on November 13 as we virtually celebrate the 2020 Alaska National Philanthropy Day. This extraordinary year we will honor and give thanks to the incredible spirit of philanthropy in Alaska. Our special guest presenter Kishshana Palmer, CFRE will speak on "So you want me to do what?"
In our various roles (fundraising or otherwise!) at non-profits in Alaska we all can wear many hats. Join Kishshana Palmer for a dynamic session on how to lead our organizations wearing all of our hats during these challenging time by looking at our practices, procedures, and cultures to make sure we are being as effective and inclusive as possible.
We will also have our annual AFP members meeting during our lunch activities. We are very excited to present videos from this year's philanthropy day awardees including The Alaska Community Foundation, Matson, Karen King (Spawn), Ken Miller, CFRE, Shawn Beck (Speciality Imports), Steve & Jan Fishback, and David Holmes.
