Network Globally With ammado
(March 9, 2009) To help members connect with fundraisers in different countries, AFP has partnered with ammado, an online global networking community for the nonprofit sector.
Through ammado, members can meet and network with practitioners from around the world and learn about other organizations, companies, strategies and campaigns that are making a difference in the lives of millions of people.
There are nonprofits (charities, sports clubs, schools and universities) from all over the world using ammado to accomplish their core objectives, increase public awareness and engage supporters and volunteers. On ammado, nonprofits are able to upload information about their nonprofit and the work they do, publish news and articles, receive online donations, create media libraries sharing images, videos and documents, mobilize through polls and petitions and communicate instantly with their supporters, potential partners, and other nonprofits from around the world.
“Our goal at AFP is to provide the resources that members need to be successful and to ensure they will be ahead of the curve as new challenges and trends rise,” said Paulette Maehara, CFRE, CAE, president and CEO of AFP. “Fundraising is growing rapidly around the world, and what happens in one region can have a dramatic effect on organizations and people in another. We believe that partnering with ammado is a great way to ensure our members are connected with colleagues around the world to share ideas, stories and experiences for the benefit of all.”
Create Your Network, Support a Cause
To celebrate the partnership, ammado is offering AFP members who create a profile on ammado an e-voucher for $1.00 to spend on the cause of their choice on website.
What can one dollar support? Here are some examples of organizations already on ammado where your dollar can make an impact. For one dollar, you can get a child vaccinated against the measles (learn more about The Measles Initiative through its profile on ammado). Or provide clean water to a child for 50 days (Children’s Safe Drinking Water Initiative). Or help in the fight against extreme poverty or hunger (World for World Organization).
You can also support your own organization if it creates a profile on ammado or help fund strategic programming for the fundraising profession, such as “The Color of Money: A Professional Development Conference for Persons of Color,” through the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy.
To get started and receive your $1 e-voucher, use this link to sign up. Within a couple of days, you’ll receive a message that says your ammado e-voucher has arrived. You’ll then be able to support any cause on ammado, including your own organization, and enjoy a new way to network with AFP, ammado and colleagues around the world. Visit the AFP profile on ammado for more details.
