"As a young fundraiser at the beginning of my career, the Chamberlain Scholarship for AFP ICON was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It was a privilege to meet other fundraisers from around the world, discover how they fulfill their important missions, and learn the latest tips and trends for the best fundraising practices. The AFP ICON experience was not only a monumental stepping stone for my professional development, it also created possibilities for personal growth and room for life-long friendships. The most valuable thing of all is the ability to take all of this and more back home with me so that my team and I may use these new tools to advance our mission."
