Pop-Up Talks
Discuss hot topics in fundraising with fellow AFP Chicago professionals! 

During these "stay safer at home" times, we are bringing our Pop-Up Talks to you via a virtual experience. We want to return to an in-person event as soon as it is safe to do so but in the meantime, 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. 

Take full advantage of this FREE member only opportunity and come join in on the conversation!

TOPIC: Abusive Donors: How to Support Each Other When Donors Bully

This Pop-Up takes a deeper dive into a recent topic discussed on the AFP listserv. How should we respond to overly pushy donors and more importantly how can we support one another when we are coping with contributors who are abusive? Do some fundraisers experience more bullying based upon their characteristics – race, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or origin?
