BE the CAUSE Campaign Reaches 81% of Goal


In cooperation with U.S. chapters, the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy has raised $377,255 in gifts and pledges from 4,271 donors as of October 31, 2014. This represents 81 percent of our $465,750 goal for the BE the CAUSE Campaign. Of the total raised, $133,247 (35%) is a result of the calling program managed pro bono by RuffaloCODY.

With just a few weeks left to go in 2014, remember to utilize the campaign materials available at afpfoundation.org/toolkit.

Here you will find a variety of resources such as a short animated video, a PowerPoint presentation, a brochure, solicitation letter templates, an insert, postcard, table tent cards, sample email solicitation copy, and a BE the CAUSE website: afpfoundation.org/bethecause. For more information download the Guidebook from the toolkit page.
