Their continued presence at this event is a value-add for our members who benefit from the education they provide, and the opportunity to explore how Bloomerang’s solutions can help them effectively manage donor relationships for increased impact. All of us at AFP are so pleased to continue to work with Bloomerang and look forward to our partnership in the year ahead.”
“Bloomerang’s mission is to build a world inspired by giving,” says Dennis Fois, chief executive officer of Bloomerang. “Our product offerings are only one part of the equation. This partnership expands our ability to share trends, best practices, and actionable tips from our research studies and customer insights with the global fundraising community. Working together with AFP Global strengthens our shared ability to empower nonprofits with the tools and resources they need to maximize impact in their communities.
