    Over the past few years, beginning with COVID, AFP-WMA has offered professional networking opportunities free of charge or at a very low fee. This loss of revenue has hit our chapter hard. If you have valued connecting with and learning from your fellow fundraisers, we hope you'll make a voluntary contribution to help us recoup costs. Any amount will help. Thank you for your support!
