Teri AmerinePresident's Message

Serving as your 2017 President of the California Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is an honor and a privilege. As fundraisers we are charged with making our communities a better place to live for our families, friends, neighbors and citizens. It's a tall order, but I have found that those who choose this profession are up to the challenge!

AFP is here to help develop professionals by providing the necessary tools and resources to build your career and expand your knowledge. Our goal is to promote philanthropy through programs and networking opportunities. Monthly meetings offer a wide variety of subjects, many of which deliver excellent ideas and platforms to improve and enhance your current fundraising strategies. You will meet professionals that are both new to the field of philanthropy or have served over 30 years fundraising for non-profits. Both ends of the spectrum will provide insight and growth opportunities. Continue Reading →
