The AFP Foundation’s mission and purpose is to generate additional resources for strategic initiatives critical to advance ethical and effective fundraising. The Every Member Campaign (EMC) is the AFP Foundation’s largest annual campaign.
Our Suncoast Chapter EMC gives our members an opportunity to do what we ask others to do every day in our professional roles as fundraisers – to make a charitable gift to support a very important cause. A gift to the EMC benefits our professional fundraising community by funding chapter development and scholarships that provide for the professional growth of our membership.
We need your help. If you can make five phone calls to your fellow chapter members, or you would like to join this committee, email Every Member Campaign Committee Chair, JL Wagner (JL@tampatheatre.org) or call 813-310-3021.
