President's Message

Hello AFP Saskatoon Members and Friends!

I am so pleased to serve as the AFP Saskatoon President in the upcoming year. Our board is made up of a passionate and skilled group of directors that are ready to provide leadership and solid direction to each of our key areas of focus. We are all looking forward to providing our chapter with interesting education events, an exceptional National Philanthropy Day and opportunities to work together to advance the AFP mission “to enable people and organizations to practices effective and ethical fundraising through professional education, networking, research and advocacy.” 

As members of AFP, we are part of a large community working together to enhance the communities where we live and work and the larger global community too! With more than 3,500 members in Canada and over 31,000 members internationally, AFP members raise over $100 billion annually. As a long-term member of AFP, I have been energized, mentored, inspired and educated by some of the leading fundraisers from Canada, the USA and internationally. Sam Laprade, CFRE, reminded us at the recent Western Canada Fundraising Conference, “We are part of a noble profession. There is dignity in the work we do, we impact lives. Be proud of that!”

I invite you to join me in my quest this year to deepen my relationship with AFP and to maximize on the benefits of being part of this powerful international fellowship of fundraising professionals. Here are just a few things I am planning to focus on this year:

·        Exploring AFPglobal.org

·        Checking out the AFP resource Centre

·        Starting to work towards my CFRE designation 

·        Getting involved with advocacy

·        Participating in professional development and networking sessions

·        Getting familiar with the latest industry research

Enjoy the rest of the summer. We look forward to September and the start of our 2019-20 programming year. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any ideas for our chapter or requests for programming. I would love to hear from you!

Best Regards,
Faith Rowland
President – AFP Saskatoon Chapter
