Networking Events
Connecting with your colleagues in fundraising has never been easier!

Networking is the best way to build a group of great personal relationships with like-minded people -- especially professionals inspired to help Chicago’s non-profit organizations advance their missions.  As a member of AFP Chicago, building your network of fundraising friends and colleagues couldn't be easier.

These monthly casual events are a great opportunity for members and non-members in the Chicagoland community to meet, network, and have fun.  Due to the growing popularity of these monthly meet-ups, be sure to RSVP and reserve your spot. Space is limited! 

Networking After Hours

AFP Chicago is changing our traditional in-person networking events to opportunities that are virtual and appropriate for these times. We will soon announce more specifics, but you can look forward to engaging with our (virtual) network of fundraising professionals for shared experiences, best practices, and critical tools to help you and your organizations during the challenging times ahead.

Join us for the July Third Thursday Virtual Networking event! On July 16 at 5:00 PM, we’ll reconnect with colleagues and friends while talking a little bit of fundraising shop. And then we’ll transition to a trivia game, testing your knowledge on yet-to-be announced topics.

Register today! You’ll make some new connections and participate in some friendly competition. See you then!

Instructions for trivia participation will be sent to you in a separate email.
