Based on federal and state guidelines regarding COVID-19, AFP San Diego is canceling all in-person events and moving events to a new virtual format. This change will take place beginning in March and will continue until further notice. AFP San Diego will offer two virtual event formats:
Dear AFP San Diego Members, Partners and Friends,
Virtual Chapter Meetings:
Much like the in-person events our members are accustomed to, Virtual Chapter Meetings will provide you with the in-depth tools and strategies to help you navigate your role as a fundraising professional. Each month, we'll bring in new speakers and experts in the field to focus on specific areas of fundraising.
Virtual Conversation Series:
As COVID-19 has changed the way we work, these monthly "Virtual Conversations" will prioritize dialogue among your peers in the industry. To equip you with new tools to help your organization, each conversation will have a short presentation by an industry expert, followed by Q&A that will highlight real experiences regarding what's working and what's not in our new virtual fundraising environment.
In addition, in the coming weeks we will be sharing strategies and tools that help you as you communicate with your donors and work virtually with your staff. This is a new and difficult situation we are all in but our goal is to provide you with the best resources possible over the coming weeks and months.
In the meantime, chapter members are encouraged to check out the following resources:
- AFP International’s content library
- Responding to the Coronavirus Outbreak: Resources to Help Nonprofits
We also invite you to read An Appeal to Congress to Include Nonprofits in Packages for Relief and Stimulus reposted by Nonprofit Quarterly.
We understand that in-person engagement is a critical component of our programming but the health and safety of our community is our priority. We appreciate your understanding at this time and we want to let you know that we’re committed to still providing you with important resources and support.
AFP San Diego
