With the likelihood of a recession upon us, many organizations are reducing or cutting professional development budgets, including membership in professional organizations such as AFP.

According to AFP, “There is no instructional guide for fundraising during a global pandemic. Our chapter is learning and growing together to meet these new challenges. Should financial hardship determine your ability to join or renew your membership, we invite you to apply for a 2020 COVID-19 Membership Scholarship Application.”

The application is due by July 31st.  In addition, a cover letter and headshot are required. Email to
