Our Programs

The AFP Greater Kansas City Chapter hosts a variety of programs and events for professional and volunteer fundraisers of all levels of expertise. We offer opportunities to network and learn  through our FRED Talks series and February Focus. Each fall, we host those new to the profession at our two-day Fundraising 101, and we offer regular networking opportunities with your fellow fundraisers. Check out the Upcoming Events section to register your spot for an upcoming AFP program.
