Meet AFP Maryland Chapter Member: Nate Garland 

GarlandNate Garland is Chief Development Officer for Special Olympics Maryland, and he's been an AFP Maryland Chapter member since Spring 2016.

We asked Nate…

Why are you a member of AFP?   The resources and the community of fundraisers.   While I could do a better job of networking with fellow AFP members I’m probably on the AFP site once a day.

 What do you think is unique to professional fundraising in Maryland?  Maryland is most unique by its small size but very diverse geographies, populations and not to mention wealth.  To have the opportunity to raise funds in diverse towns like Ocean City, Easton, Annapolis, Columbia, Baltimore, Potomac, Frederick and Deep Creek and do that in a state you can navigate pretty easily makes Maryland pretty special.
