March 24 - Fundraising At Home

AFP Nova Scotia Virtual Brown Bag Lunch Series - Session 1
Fundraising at Home

We all have been coping with the ever evolving and unpredictable landscape.

Many of us are now, or will soon be, working from home, while still others do what they can to help their front-line staff. Each of us is dealing with different, difficult, and uncertain situations that most have not faced before, at work or at home.

In an effort to stay connected and keep learning, this session has been brought to you by AFP Nova Scotia, in partnership with Global Philanthropic Inc. (Canada).

The webinar will be hosted by Chris Steeves, Senior Consultant with Global Philanthropic Inc. (Canada) and Daphne Carter, President, AFP Nova Scotia who will lead the discussion around tips for working at home.

 Discussion Goals:

  • Bring people in the NFP sector together
  • Learn more about virtually networking and teleworking
  • Share tips & trends
  • Bring some positivity into our day during this tough period

This session is now available for viewing:
