We know these are challenging times and it’s totally normal to be overwhelmed with emotions-we are right there with you. Our mission at AFP is to connect our members, inspire, engage, and grow so we can be better fundraisers for our community that needs us more than ever. We’re all in this together and we pulled some resources for members that you can utilize to stay motivated.
As we practice social distancing, it’s still critical that we communicate with each other. Utilize AFP Connect, the fundraising community’s online forum, to engage in conversation with fellow fundraising professionals and keep the lines of communication open! Current threads are addressing remote onboarding and training, email templates for COVID-19 communication and more.
