Forming a New Community
If you are interested in forming a Diverse Community in Fundraising, this is what you have to do.
- Three or more AFP members who have identified a need for a Diverse Community can contact the AFP Diversity Program to request that an item be posted on the website soliciting others interested in forming the group.
- Once 25 members of that Community have been identified, an online discussion group will be formed.
- Additional services and support will be provided as groups grow in number (starting at 100 members). These will include Affinity Networking Sessions at the International Conference, links to relevant websites and other benefits.
If you are interested in forming a community, please e-mail Lori Gusdorf. The concept for the AFP Diverse Communities program was derived from discussions at the Diversity Summit. Please see that page for some excellent background information.
