The AFP Maryland Chapter has almost 400 members, representing more than 200 nonprofits across the state. Members have access to many benefits, including educational programs, roundtables, networking events, a mentoring program and scholarships.

Did you know that scholarships are available for AFP membership? Yes, full scholarships for membership in AFP Maryland are available for new, renewing, or past members. Apply online and you can benefit from AFP International resources, and local chapter opportunities for learning, networking, and professional advancement. Scholarships are also available each year for Fundraising Day in Maryland and the Fundamentals of Fundraising Course.

There’s an exciting educational opportunity coming up, so mark your calendars! On Thursday, October 12th, Jennifer Pelton, CFRE, Director of Development at the Public Justice Center, will host a seminar on increasing board engagement.  At the event, Jennifer will share powerful strategies for helping reluctant board members raise funds for your organization.
