Networking Events
Connecting with your colleagues in fundraising has never been easier!

Networking is the best way to build a group of great personal relationships with like-minded people -- especially professionals inspired to help Chicago’s non-profit organizations advance their missions.  As a member of AFP Chicago, building your network of fundraising friends and colleagues couldn't be easier.

These monthly in-person events are a great opportunity for members and non-members in the Chicagoland community to engage with our network of fundraising professionals for shared experiences, best practices, and critical tools to help you and your organizations during the challenging times ahead.
