Coffee Chat

We have returned to in-person at Fluid Coffee! We are continuing to offer Coffee Chat to you via a virtual experience as well. We hope to see you in person and here are some helpful tips to get the most out the Virtual Coffee Chat experience.

Coffee Chat is a gathering for non-profit development professionals. Anyone with fundraising duties in their job description-- or an interest in breaking into the field of nonprofit fundraising-- is welcome!

Join us for an organic conversation about fundraising best practices.  Development professionals can share what is on their mind and get input from the group on current roadblocks or struggles.

Coffee Chat is FREE to attend. You don’t have to register or be a member of AFP.  Plenty of free 2-hour parking is available near Fluid Coffee Bar. Just bring a notebook and a willingness to chat about fundraising and join the discussion!
