Affinity Group Program

In fundraising there are many challenges we all share. How can I increase the number of first time donors? How can I increase the effectiveness of this appeal? What can I do to make our gala more successful? These challenges are going to differ from organization to organization.   

To help our members deal with these challenges AFP Charlotte created the affinity group program. The goal of this program is to connect development professionals that face similar challenges.  For more information, contact Jim Kelley.

Annual Giving

Annual giving is one of the most important areas in an organization's fundraising efforts. Development Officers with a focus on annual giving are encouraged to join this group to share best practices, dos and don'ts, how to grow your annual giving program and so much more...  All levels of experience are welcome.

Planned giving is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor's overall financial and/or estate planning.  Fundraisers can learn how to communicate knowledgably about planned giving options.
