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.
