We know this has been a challenging year for many charities and the funds to attend good conferences are not always available. For this reason, AFP works with sponsors to help provide free opportunities to attend Congress on Nov 30, December 1,2 in Toronto. (www.afptoronto.org/congress)

Pareto Fundraising is passionate about helping charities grow. One of the best ways to do that is through training and professional development to help enable you to be a better fundraiser so you can raise more funds and make the world a better place faster.

We are excited that Pareto Fundraising is offering 4 full
AFP Congress passes to fundraisers who would otherwise not be able to attend. Each pass covers the registration fee (excluding travel and hotel) for the full three days of Congress.

We invite you to go to their website to learn more about how to apply.

We’d love to see you there so you can learn and be inspired by some of the best speakers in the world on the topics related to fundraising.

Have a great week.
