The Haunted House of Fundraiser Nightmares

When:  Oct 25, 2023 from 05:00 PM to 07:00 PM (CT)
Associated with  AFPKC

A cold chill grips the air. Disembodied whispers echo down the hall. These are not the bad dreams of children; these are altogether more terrifying: the nightmares of fundraisers loosed upon the world! Donors, reporting requirements, and ethical conundra of years past have resurrected themselves to rise again for one night to haunt Kansas City’s premier fundraisers!

Join your fellow members of the Association of Fundraising Professional Kansas City for bone-chilling storytelling about the difficult moral problems your peers have encountered and roundtable discussions on specific areas of concern. These macabre roundtables will include ghost stories of mission creep, onerous gift stipulations, problematic funders, as well as respecting donor privacy and intent.

Venture into this twisted realm on October 25th from 5-7pm at the Central Branch of our co-hosting sponsor, the Kansas City Public Library in their ghoulishly decorated Helzberg Auditorium and rooftop. There you can enjoy refreshments and a unique opportunity to talk with other fundraisers about challenges in a profession that we all know is not for the faint of heart. Join us . . . if you dare!

Date and Time:

  • October 25th from 5-7pm


  • Kansas City Public Library Central Branch

    • Helzberg Auditorium, 5th floor hallway, and rooftop


AFPKC Members - $30
AFP Other Chapter Members - $30
