It's time to attend an event and get involved. We have educational lunches each month, a conference in March and we celebrate National Philanthropy Day in November with a conference and awards luncheon. We also have introductory mentoring and advanced mentoring tracks -- join where your experience and interests take you. We also have an internship program that is exclusive to members (with funding to help pay for your intern!). 


Volunteer for AFP-Quad Cities. We have numerous committees that assist with marketing, planning luncheons, National Philanthropy Day, Success in Fundraising and teaching introductory and advanced courses. Our internship committee is always looking for new perspectives to educate our young people on careers in philanthropy. Contact us to learn more!


Make sure you are signed up to get information from us. We send emails about upcoming luncheons and events as well as industry news. This is our main communication tool. We also have a Facebook page.
