Mike’s Monday Message: “Privilanthropy” and our Responsibility to the Donor

Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA, president and CEO of AFP, coined a new term and wants your opinion on it and the issue of donor privilege. Join the conversation by letting us know what your thoughts are, here, on LinkedIn or on Twitter (@AFPIHQ)!

The word was “privilanthropy,” a combination of “privilege” and “philanthropy.” It’s hardly a new concept, of course, but as we see more and more major gifts making up a larger percentage of the philanthropic pie, and given the increased focus on equity, inclusion and equality, I thoug...

Foundation Scholarships: An Investment in the Future of Fundraising

AFP member Carrie Ann Chandler on receiving a scholarship for this year’s #AFPICON Summer Sessions: “AFP has meant everything to me since I joined. It helped me to get the job I currently hold, learn best practices, and get motivated to make a difference, and this conference was no different. I would not have been able to attend without the funds provided by the Foundation, especially with the cutbacks my organization is facing because of COVID-19. Thank you to the Foundation for supporting my professional development and investing in me.”

AFP Foundations Tuesday: Grant Back Program

The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy - U.S. works in partnership with AFP chapters to implement the cooperative annual fund campaign called BE the CAUSE. Every chapter receives between 15%-35%—based on mutually agreed goals—of their BE the CAUSE dollars raised in the previous year. These funds are granted to the local AFP chapter to further the mission of the Foundation in providing educational programs, scholarships and other services in local communities. In 2020, the U.S. Foundation has granted more than $82,000 back to chapters!

The survey wasn’t about collecting more data on giving, but rather, it was focused on you—the fundraiser and your attitudes and confidence right now. It was designed to be a short surve...

AFP Foundations Tuesday: AFP LEAD VIRTUAL Matching Gifts

In a new twist for the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy’s matching program, a group of women in Foundation and AFP Global leadership positions worked together to fund the AFP LEAD VIRTUAL matching program. Benefiting BE the CAUSE, the U.S. Foundation’s annual unrestricted fund, the campaign raised more than $9,000 from 256 donors—which then resulted in $12,291 with the match! Thanks to the generosity of our leaders and donors, the money will go directly toward advancing the fundraising profession.

Please help the Deroma family! Our patriarch is currently undergoing chemo for stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma Cancer. Our sweet man, Tony is halfway there and needs your help to offset the second half of treatment. You can only imagine the shock we took the day we found out that the strongest man we ever knew was suddenly weak, exhausted and is already stage 4! What to do, what to do? Our family of 4 and marriage of 40 years (09/21/1980) was beginning to disappear right before our eyes. We HAVE to keep him in treatment. Please help, any little tiny donation will help more than you know. Our current outstanding medical is 8K. The Oncologist co-pays 3x a week plus blood chemistry, surgeries, scans and prescriptions. We can do this, I know it in my heart. Tony is a Harley Davidson man and has enjoyed riding since he was 16. His second love (besides me :) is Classic Cars. He built a 1933 Ford Vicky over 15 years, and recently sold his love to install new plumbing in our home after a water main break. After the heartbreak of selling Vicky, he got Lymphedema in both legs, and his diagnosis of stage 4 cancer, then, boom, Covid19 hit. We have to pay the out of pocket of 3,750 to go on with treatment, and have mounting bills behind us. It has been a difficult year for everyone, we know, and bless every single sick person in the world and pray for them to get well. Thank you in advance for a little bit of happiness for a father of 2 and my best friend, my hubby.
hello friends we kindly ask for your support it don't matter how small it is i will go a far way to help these kids in africa during the pandemic its even hard for them to get by. god bless every effort thank you sharing for a friend. gf.me/u/yqryd5
