AFP’s Official LinkedIn Page OnFundraising Reaches 20,000 Members and Earns Top Social Media Benefit for Young Professionals

January 28, 2014

Voted as the top social media benefit for AFP’s young professional members, the AFP official LinkedIn page—OnFundraising—also serves as a sounding board for more than 20,000 members.

Getting involved in the discussions in the OnFundraising group is as simple as requesting to join, posting a question or viewpoint of your own, or chiming in to a discussion that has already sparked some engagement.

Young professionals are taking to the discussion board to seek advice from experienced fundraising professionals on topics such as:

If you know a bit about any of those topics, be a mentor! Help guide our young professionals by simply posting a quick comment. While you’re there, peruse the additional discussions started, and check back often to see how you can pay your fundraising expertise forward. Help us shape tomorrow’s fundraising leaders!

And this open forum doesn’t just apply to young professionals—it’s a two-way street. Seasoned professionals can learn a thing or two about newly developed fundraising techniques from their peers, and even from the next generation of fundraisers.

One newbie fundraiser seeks advice on using third-party fundraising—have you done it? Do you have a toolkit to follow? Share it here!

A more seasoned professional is looking for advice while her organization ups the ante for major donor memberships from $2,000 to $2,500—any strategies out there for successfully raising the level while making sure not to lose current members? Maybe you could learn from each other’s experiences!

The forum isn’t just a wall of questions and calls for help—there are also a ton of tips, takeaways from events, and openly shared experiences, such as:

Young, seasoned, newbie, experienced—there’s a question you can answer, a query you can pose, and a discussion to be had for everyone. Join the conversation and help your fellow fundraisers.

(NOTE: And to our Young Professional members, you can also join your very own LinkedIn discussion forum—AFP’s Young Professionals Group—by requesting an invitation here.)
