Support a Research Project on Fundraising Communication

AFP Chicago is supporting a research project on fundraising communication.  As an association, we are dedicated to enhancing the skills of our membership, including supporting practice that is based on good research.  Ruth Hansen, CFRE, of Indiana University and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, is conducting a study on how fundraisers communicate with potential donors.  As a result of this study, we will learn more about the choices made by others in our profession and how fundraisers decide how best to communicate with potential donors.  Ruth is a current member and past board member of AFP Chicago.

The study is an online survey and writing exercise that takes about 45-60 minutes to complete.  Participants can enter a drawing to win one of five $100 gift cards.  If you would like to participate, please follow this link.
