Pop-Up Events
Discuss hot topics in fundraising with fellow AFP Chicago professionals! 

Now open to Members (free) & Non-Members ($10)

During these "stay safer at home" times, we are bringing our Pop-Up Events to you via a virtual experience. We want to return to an in-person event as soon as it is safe to do so but in the meantime, you can look forward to engaging with our (virtual) network of fundraising professionals for shared experiences, best practices, and critical tools to help you and your organizations during the challenging times ahead. 

Please check back often, as we regularly add new dates and topics.

Peer Mentoring: Adding Muscle to Your Mid-Level Fundraising Career

12:00 - 1:00 pm

Having a mentor is not just for newbies – even mid-career professionals can benefit from reaching out to others. Perhaps you’re new to a leadership role and would like some objective guidance. Join AFP Peer Mentoring Committee Co-Chairs Christopher Chantson and Jennifer Dettloff as they lead a lively discussion on how to steer your career in the right direction by connecting with fundraising peers and expanding your network. Come with questions and be prepared to share your own career experiences and advice. You may also submit questions in advance when you register. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with your fellow fundraisers!
