  • National Philanthropy Day goes Virtual

  • Afternoons with AFP-GLAC: A Member Only Event - July 9th

    For AFP-GLAC Members Only

    AFP Greater Los Angeles Chapter recognizes these times are unprecedented and nonprofit professionals may be missing that sense of community you get when you come to an AFP event. We have a solution for that! We are hosting Afternoons with AFP-GLAC a FREE "Nonprofit Happy Hour" for our GLAC members. Here you can vent, commiserate, get assistance, celebrate successes, or just "hang out" with other like-minded individuals!

    This is an informal, bi-weekly, virtual gathering, and each attendee is encouraged to join with their own drink (a GLACtini or Fundraiserita, perhaps?) or favorite treat! There won’t be a set topic, we’ll just a set a space for nonprofit professionals to gather together, support one another and share information.

    Mark your calendars, our next Afternoons with AFP-GLAC will be:

    When: Thursday, July 9, 2020

    What time: 4:00-5:00pm

    Where: Your computer, laptop, or smart phone
