Welcome to AFPSEWI
AFP - Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter develops fundraising professionals, advances the professional, and inspires a culture of philanthropy in our communities.
What Our Members Are Saying
"In a profession where academic credentialing is minimal, AFP provides career definition and validation for fundraisers. As a hub of networking, continuing education, and ethical standards, AFP benefits everyone who chooses the field – it not only legitimizes their profession but gives them a place to belong."
Will Janisch, Philanthropic Adviser, Greater Milwaukee Foundation
Support During the Journey
"The marketing and education committees have both provided me with a strong network of people that I can call on to problem-solve with, share the joy of my success and commiserate when we’re struggling together. Fundraising can be a very isolating journey, AFP has brought me out of the isolation and into the joy."
Julie Cordero, Executive Director, Milwaukee Tennis Education Foundation
Take Advantage of Your Investment!
"Attend monthly educational sessions. Go to the socials. Make the investment in you! Get to know other fundraisers - you never know when you will need to partner on a project or need advice from others outside your organization."
Dawn Groshek, Owner, Groshek Associates, LLC
