    VAFRE members who would like to prepay for all of their meetings may purchase a Season Pass. A Season Pass covers all regular meetings from September 2019 through June 2020, including the monthly luncheons and the Awards luncheon.*

    The Season Pass allows members the convenience of one annual payment for VAFRE events at a discounted rate of $190.00 - that's $30 less than paying as you register for each event, or like getting to attend the Awards luncheon for free! Members may also send another staff person in their place if they are unable to attend a meeting (simply contact our offices to register your substitute).

    ADDED BONUS: Season Pass holders may register one guest to attend any one regular monthly meeting (excludes Awards luncheon) at no additional charge. That's an additional savings of $30!

    *VAFRE reserves the right to charge Season Pass holders for any additional events that may be scheduled.

    Please note: the Season Pass is available to members only. You must be logged in to register for this option.

    Join us on October 1st as Alex Smith shares some observations on fundraising from a life-long fundraiser.

    PRESENTER

    Alex Smith, Director of Major Gifts, Collegiate School (retired)

    A Lifetime Member of VAFRE who worked for 47-years at Collegiate, Alex served in roles that gave him opportunities to guide and advise students, recruit and welcome new students and families, and shape the scope and impact of Collegiate’s fundraising endeavors beyond measure. He helped establish and strengthen Collegiate’s development office, and in that role, raised funds that reshaped the landscape and grew the breadth of the campus: the fact that the Collegiate of today has grown by 20-plus buildings and facilities under his stewardship, along with the School’s endowment, is a testament to his commitment and loyalty. Overall, he raised more than $130 million for Collegiate yet, as he acknowledges, “It’s not so much about these buildings, it’s really the relationships. Buildings will come and go. At the end of the day, Collegiate’s DNA is relationships.”
