The New Daily


The theme of AFP’s work over the past 12 months has been improvement—improving the programming, services, look and spirit of our association. Why? To help you make have impact and create change—in your organization, in your community and in the world.

We are changing because you need different things from AFP now—different kinds of resources, delivered in different ways—to create impact. We’re using more video now, offering new kinds of webinars and other education, making it easier for you to connect with colleagues around the world, and transforming ICON, our International Conference on Fundraising and Leadership Academy. If you haven’t signed up for ICON ’19 yet, get on it!

Here’s the latest change: the debut of AFP Daily. It’s our new, short, daily newsletter featuring FIVE blogs, articles, resources, and videos about the fundraising profession and the AFP community. NO FLUFF HERE, just tips on fundraising, links to important conversations on AFP Connect, statistics about our profession, and important news about the sector, as well as educational opportunities and AFP announcements. Quick, easy, concise, and delivered bright and early each morning.

We envision the new AFP Daily as something you’ll read while you get your latte (or tea, water, cola, energy drink, or protein shake—no judging here!), on the bus or subway, or reading from your mobile device as your work computer loads up. And of course, you can forward articles or the whole newsletter on to your colleagues when you see something of interest.

The Daily will be sent Monday through Thursday, and on Friday you’ll get AFP Weekly, a week-in-review edition that features a roundup of the top articles, along with our job listings.

I hope you find the Daily a useful and informative part of your AFP experience. Maybe there are days you skim it and hit Delete, and maybe there are days you read every article. We want to make the Daily as helpful as possible, so email and let us know how we’re doing.

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