Join Us at AFP Congress Next Month!

October 9, 2017

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Toronto Chapter’s annual Congress is a three-day event from November 20-22, 2017, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Now in its 22nd year, Congress brings together over 1,000 fundraising professionals world-wide to share leading-edge practices and make long-lasting connections.  Featuring 88 in-depth sessions; keynotes from Dr. David Suzuki, Dr. Cindy Blackstock and Michael “Pinball” Clemons; and culminating with the Philanthropy Awards, Toronto is the place to be in November.

This year’s theme is Inclusion. Innovation. Inspiration. The AFP Greater Toronto Chapter is fortunate to be hosting Congress in one of the world’s most multicultural cities. Toronto also happens to be a major hub for the charitable sector, and there will be no shortage of organizations from which to gain inspiration. With our unique and diverse session line-up with speakers from shops, small and large, you are sure to leave brimming with innovative thoughts and inspiration to make a difference within your organization and beyond.

But our favourite part of Congress is welcoming friends and colleagues, both old and new, to a place where they can share ideas and build a better future. If you are new to Congress, get ready to be engaged and empowered over three immersive days.  If you are a seasoned Congress-goer, this is the year you won’t want to miss.

We understand that your organization may not have a professional development budget to send you to a conference—but that shouldn’t stop you from attending! Bursary opportunities are available for AFP members and non-members and bursary applicants do receive a special discounted rate. Apply today!

The success of this conference depends on committed AFP volunteers who design the curriculum to ensure that the speakers selected are seasoned presenters with outcomes that can be delivered. 

The AFP Greater Toronto Chapter would like to express our gratitude to all the volunteers who make Congress such an exceptional experience!
