Spring is on the way. We had a late start with snow, ice, and power outages. Now we are ready for the flowers to start to bloom. Look at this new season as an opportunity to look at everything with a new eye. Give a new sprucing up to your stewardship touches. Give a new scent to virtual events. Pull the weeds out of your direct mail appeals. Fertilize your donor database or prospect pool.
VAFRE will be here as your gardener. Use the resources we have to offer. Check out our affinity groups. Use our resources tab on our website. Join a committee.
And of course, join us on Tuesday, April 6th for our virtual lunch-in Introduction to Community-Centric Fundraising. This important program about a movement grounded in equity and social justice is cosponsored by the Central Virginia Chapter of AFP and registration is available to everyone at no cost.
