Topic:  National Philanthropy Day Honoree Panel

About the program:
Join us on Monday, September 13, 2021, for our next AFP Central Iowa Chapter meeting.

A panel of honorees from our National Philanthropy Day celebration held last November will share insights into how they make their philanthropic decisions and how we can do even better in our roles as philanthropic advisors. The format of this panel is Q&A, so please be prepared to ask a question to our panelists.


Mitch Sellers, dsmHack, Des Moines, IA: Spirit of Philanthropy 

Micah Kiel, Wells Fargo, Des Moines, IA: Outstanding Corporate Philanthropy - Large Business

Ed McGill, McGill Junge Wealth Management, Urbandale, IA: Outstanding Corporate Philanthropy - Small Business

Unfortunately, Caroly Coronado Vargas, Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy, and Joyce Chapman, Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser, are unable to join us.

Because of the panel presentation format, we are unable to offer a live virtual option for this meeting. However, an audio recording of the discussion will be made available to AFP members afterwards.

For those attending in-person, we are following current CDC guidance at our events, which recommends all individuals wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor, public places that are located in areas of substantial or high transmission. As Polk County is currently designated as a “Substantial Transmission” area, we are requiring that all in-person attendees wear a mask for the duration of the meeting. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at check-in and throughout the event as needed. We will encourage physical distancing between one another when you attend in-person. For more information, please reference the CDC website


As fundraising professionals, we all know the importance of an in-person meeting, so we’re taking these safety precautions very seriously. We want to continue to offer this option for monthly meetings, and to do so, we must ensure that those of us who choose to be in-person are as safe as possible while in attendance.


Lunch will still be provided to those attending in-person. Box lunches to-go will be available to grab as you’re leaving. This allows for all attendees to wear their masks for the duration of the event, without the need to remove them while eating lunch.


REMINDER! We have a NEW location for our AFP Central Iowa Chapter meetings: Animal Rescue League (ARL) of Iowa in the Mapes Auditorium, which is located at 5254 NE 22nd Street Des Moines, IA 50313. The Auditorium has a dedicated entrance on the north side of the building or you can come in the main entrance and be directed to the room.


Remember that as an AFP member you may bring one guest annually FREE OF CHARGE to one of the AFP monthly meetings.


  • Member: $15 (includes lunch)
