Conference on Philanthropy

AFP New Jersey’s annual Conference on Philanthropy, held each November, is the event requiring the greatest amount of volunteer time and expertise. The committee meets throughout the year, beginning with the evaluation closing out one conference, through to the execution of the subsequent year’s event. Volunteers are needed to assist with a variety of tasks which include:

  • Planning and strategy sessions of the Committee
  • Chairing a subcommittee which may include public relations, conference program, scholarships, volunteers
  • Recruiting presenters and speakers
  • Event logistics
  • Securing sponsorships
  • Stewardship of exhibitors
  • Day-of assistance

Those interested in making a commitment to serve during the planning or execution of the conference are asked to contact our 2022 Conference Chair, Elizabeth Bennett, at
