Mike's Monday Message

The weekly blog about all things AFP and fundraising, led by AFP President and CEO Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA

Mike GeigerI’m Mike Geiger, president and CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Though I’m the one posting, it’s really your thoughts and views that we'll be posting, as much as mine —it's about the AFP community and the fundraising profession. In fact, we will occasionally feature a post from one of our esteemed colleagues, so keep an eye out for these special articles.

While I do want to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening at AFP, what I really want is to hear from you. So e-mail me your comments, questions, concerns, feedback, and items you think I should be covering.
