Member Benefits: Fundraising Discussion Lists
June 25, 2007
(June 25, 2007) Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to post a question about fundraising that would be answered by other knowledgeable professionals, a place to share a recent “light bulb moment” with others who work in philanthropy? Here’s your opportunity.
AFP offers email discussion lists that allow members to share information about fundraising topics such as “ethics,” “Internet fundraising” and “public policy,” and they are happening right now!
If you haven’t heard of these discussion lists, you may be missing out on an important benefit of your AFP membership: the opportunity to share knowledge and hear the thoughts of others on topics critical to your career.
Discussions are taking place right now for a wide variety of topic areas, including direct mail, fundraising programs, diversity and donor stewardship.
In order for these discussions to really take flight, though, AFP members are encouraged to sign up today for one or more of the various discussion topics. Enrich the conversation with your valuable experience and insight, and then sit back and hear what others have to say. It’s that easy!
Concerned about receiving too many emails throughout the day? No problem. Simply click the “Digest” option when you sign up and you will receive the discussion list updates in one email each morning. If you want to stay as current as possible, simply click the “As posted” option and you will receive discussion responses as they are submitted.

Think about everything you could gain with just a few clicks of the keyboard! Look into being a part of this great opportunity made possible by your membership to AFP.
