invite you to attend the Brandywine Chapter of the Association of Fundraising
Professionals’ presentation of Philanthropy Day 2013 on November 20th
from 8:30-4:30 at the Chase Center in Wilmington.
opening dialogue session will bring together leaders from the Delaware
Grantmakers Association (DGA), Board Members, Executive Directors, and
Development professionals for a discussion on the future of philanthropy in
Delaware. It is critical that you
attend. This discussion will consist of an
overview of Delaware’s philanthropic environment provided by DGA Chair, Peter
Morrow, followed by a lively, facilitated discussion among a panel,
representing the diverse aspects of Delaware’s philanthropic community. These include large and small, upstate and
downstate funders, along with executives representing small, large, publicly
and privately funded organizations. The
economic recovery, while not as robust and quick as we’d like, has improved
conditions for some nonprofits, but others continue to struggle. In the spirit of collaboration, Delaware
Grantmakers Association, Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, and the Brandywine
Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, ask that you join us at
this important crossroads to be part of the larger discussions and issues
affecting the Delaware nonprofit sector.
How can we improve and enhance
philanthropy in the First State? Where are the fundraising gaps? How can we work together more effectively?
let your voice be left out of the discussion!
While our panel will touch on the issues above, the dialogue will be
open for all in attendance to add to the conversation. This is your chance to influence the thinking
of the top funders in the state, and everyone’s chance to listen.
encourage corporate and foundation funders, executive directors, and your board
members to join us for an energetic conversation – this is our chance for all
stakeholders to name and discuss today’s issues and challenges. The agenda for the remainder of the day is
packed, the speakers are nationally acclaimed, the awards recognize top leaders
in the philanthropic community, and anyone with a stake in Delaware’s
fundraising environment should be there. We hope to you and your board members will
