AFP Global Requests for Proposals for Professional Development Programming
< See also: Get Involved: AFP Volunteer Opportunities
Through a series of Requests for Proposals (RFP), AFP Global invites the contribution of its network of subject matter experts with the goals of expanding our professional development offerings; broadening and diversifying our network of contributors, speakers, and subject matter experts (“contributors”); and positioning AFP as a thought leader and the go-to source for cutting edge education, training, information, and insights.
We seek content that helps AFP members become better fundraisers and nonprofit leaders, through programs that help build their understanding of best practices, skills, and techniques based on the core fundraising knowledge domains:
- Current and Prospective Donor Research
- Securing the Gift
- Relationship Building
- Volunteer Involvement
- Leadership and Management
- Ethics, Accountability and Professionalism
We’re also looking for fresh perspectives about big ideas such as leadership development and inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA) and issues that transcend the technical aspects of fundraising. What are the important strategic issues, innovations, disruptive influences, and societal trends (e.g., changing demographics) that impact fundraising, philanthropy, and the nonprofit sector? With your help, AFP can build understanding of these issues and their significance.
Opportunities to contribute include (but are not limited to):
- Micro-learning videos
- Virtual Deep Dives Workshops
- Articles and regular column/contributors in Advancing Philanthropy (AFP's quarterly magazine)
- AFP ICON Education Sessions and Pre-Conference Workshops
- AFP LEAD Education Sessions and Pre-Conference Workshops
All this goes toward better serving AFP’s membership and the fundraising profession as a whole.
