I am very thankful to AFP for giving me the opportunity to learn from one of the icons in the fundraising industry – Jerold Panas.

I was honored to receive a scholarship to attend an Institute for Charitable Giving conference titled: “The Art of Successful Fundraising.” This conference was facilitated by Jerold Panas, a 40-year veteran of fundraising who now provides workshops and conferences to share his knowledge, create dialogue on the current trends happening in our profession and to help attendees reflect on the impact they are having on their organizations and communities.

Being fairly new to fundraising, I am constantly searching for ways to learn from the successes of others and to build my network of fellow fundraising professionals. This conference allowed me to accomplish both of these missions to the fullest extent.

I feel like I am constantly receiving great benefits from AFP and the Suncoast Chapter Scholarship Program is no different. Thanks for making the scholarship program a quick and easy process with immediate feedback and results. I encourage every AFP member to get involved in a committee, give to the “Every Member Campaign” and take advantage of this great professional development opportunity.
