    National Philanthropy Day
    is set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in our philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities, and our world.  Each year, AFP honors individuals and groups who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced and inspired philanthropy locally and around the globe. This year due to COVID-19 pandemic, the AFP NJ Southern Chapter Board has once again decided on a virtual event. The virtual event will include both live and pre-recorded portions.

  • Stories from the Road: Major Gifts presented by Julie Fink, MS, CFRE

    Dec 15, 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM (ET)

    Stories from the Road: Major Gifts Presented by Julie Fink, MS, CFRE

    Speaker: Julie Fink, MS, CFRE Jefferson Health New Jersey 

    Storytelling is a key strategy for fundraising. Stories bring the data to life, they demonstrate cause and effect and they convey relatable messages. So let's hear some stories--stories as a major gift officer. Gain an understanding of the donor engagement process through the narratives of successfully secured major gifts and those that fell flat. This interactive session will offer insight into a prospect vs. a suspect, timing of the ask, navigating meetings that go off track, when a prospect "ghosts" you, and much more. 

    Julie Fink is a seventeen-year veteran in nonprofit with experience in healthcare and social services. She currently is the Director of Development for Jefferson Health Foundation New Jersey. She serves as president of AFP New Jersey Southern chapter and a board member of a national animal assisted canine therapy nonprofit. She also founded and was president of a community nonprofit that supported mothers and their children. She holds her bachelors in communications from Rider University, her masters in nonprofit management and philanthropy from Bay Path University and is a certified fundraising executive (CFRE).
