Bloomerang joins AFP’s Strategic Partners program as an Impact Partner and was a Gold Sponsor of AFP ICON 2022, the largest gathering of fundraising professionals in the world, May 2 - 4, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Through the partnership, Bloomerang will support the work of the AFP community in advancing the profession around the world and providing the most comprehensive, cutting-edge knowledge and skills that fundraisers need in today’s constantly changing philanthropic environment. The company provided educational and thought leadership at AFP ICON 2022 and had a presence in the conference exhibit hall, the AFP Exchange.
“We are so excited to partner with Bloomerang because they have demonstrated time and time again their support for ethical, effective and inclusive fundraising,” said Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA, president and CEO of AFP. “They have been an important partner already with AFP in collaborations such as the Fundraising Effectiveness Project, and this new strategic agreement expands the impact we can have together on the profession. Many thanks to Bloomerang’s leadership and their dedication to advancing philanthropy and the change that fundraisers make possible every day.”
"We're thrilled about the role this partnership plays in Bloomerang's mission to help nonprofits thrive," says Bloomerang CEO Ross Hendrickson. "For us, it's more than just creating innovative software to help nonprofits do more good. We also want to advance the fundraising profession and the field of philanthropy by investing in content, thought leadership, and resources that improve nonprofits' effectiveness. We believe that this partnership allows us to further our commitment to the broader nonprofit community; it’s an important piece in our mission to help nonprofits thrive."
