Development Director, Degage Ministries
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Why is AFP membership valuable to you?
I cannot imagine working in development as staff or board member and not being an active member of AFP! My membership not only keeps my skills sharp, it benefits the organization as well!
How has AFP helped you as a fundraiser?
Being a one person development office, I rely on AFP Resource Center for current and accurate changes in laws regarding tax issues, white papers for programs to consider, research programs as well as professional advancement opportunities.
What advice do you have for members who are looking to get more out of their AFP experience?
Explore the options that are available to members, both national and local. Take advantage of the partnership opportunities, networking options, professional advancement, publications and employee assistance. These are all benefits of membership!
