Coffee Chat

We have a new home at DIRT Coffee at Mosaic Community Campus! 
We hope to see you in person soon.


Coffee Chat is a gathering for non-profit development professionals. Anyone with fundraising duties in their job description-- or interest in breaking into the field of nonprofit fundraising-- is welcome!

Join us for an organic conversation about fundraising best practices.  Development professionals can share what is on their mind and get input from the group on current roadblocks or struggles.

Coffee Chat is FREE to attend. You don’t have to register or be a member of AFP.  Just bring a notebook and a willingness to chat about fundraising and join the discussion!  



Coffee Chat is on the second Thursday of every month
