Below are major benefits you’ll receive when you join the Northern Plains Association of Fundraising Professionals.

2) Audio conference lending library: Approximately 50 different training sessions with national philanthropic leaders. Member cost free.

3) Mentoring program: Access to CFRE professionals and others with 20+ years of fundraising experience. Member cost free.

4) National Philanthropy Day is our signature event which awards philanthropists. This is an opportunity for members to bring their donors to an inspiring event which promotes philanthropy. Members are asked to nominate their donors for recognition. Significant media attention is gained by this event. November 17, 2016 is the date for this event and it will be held at the Fargo Holiday Inn.

5) Northern Plains Chapter is governed by a volunteer board of directors who donate time and expertise to support our region's fundraising professionals. Each director makes him or herself accessible to all members, and potential members who need one-on-one assistance.

6) Our chapter provides a part-time Executive Director who provides personal service, information about upcoming learning opportunities and assistance with locating resources for specific needs.
