You are invited to propose a program for VAFRE’s monthly luncheon sessions. Luncheons are held in person in Richmond, VA, with a hybrid option. Submissions are open to the public, regardless of membership status, and will be accepted on a rolling basis.

VAFRE’s mission is to equip fundraising professionals with the expertise, strategies, and networks to deliver lasting impact for an inclusive philanthropic community. Our goal for monthly programming is to provide innovative and relevant programming that appeals to members across experience levels and fundraising disciplines. VAFRE is committed to becoming a more equitable organization by supporting diversity, equity, inclusion, and access initiatives.
