AFP Thanks CCS for Sponsoring Kaleidoscope
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is pleased to recognize and thank Community Counselling Service (CCS) for its generous sponsorship of Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope was the name of a printed publication developed in the early 1990s and produced by the Diversity Committee for AFP members and others interested in the topics of diversity and inclusiveness. AFP is launching the publication as an electronic newsletter to further the dialogue which was started in those early publications.
“AFP recognizes the need for a publication focused on expanding diversity in the fundraising profession as well as promoting the concept of philanthropy and giving among underrepresented groups,” says Paulette V. Maehara, CFRE, CAE, AFP president and CEO. “With the generous support of CCS, an organization that also recognizes and champions the need for more diversity in our sector, we are able to provide Kaleidoscope once again to our members and others interested in promoting and understanding diversity.”
