We were honored to be chosen as one of only 3 Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) members to share our "Story" for their International Convention in Chicago last month.

Shown right before the final session lead by Former President Bill Clinton, we hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse of why we value our membership and partnership with AFP for over 20 years now!

BTW: Can you tell our fearless Founder and CEO, Karen was a bit nervous in front of the spotlights? :)
