Sponsors receive a designated conference exhibitor table and a conference attendee list as part of their sponsorship benefits.

Meet the Funders Breakfast:  One of the most popular programs with over 200 attendees annually, the Meet the Funders Breakfast & Roundtables brings together local corporate and foundation funders and development professionals to have open dialogue on funding priorities, processes & trends.

Breakfast Meetings:  Breakfast Meetings are central to AFP programming and attract more than 400 AFP members and non-members annually to explore key strategic topics.  A staple of the AFP MA Chapter programming, Breakfast Meetings provide a highly visible platform for year-round sponsorship recognition.

Brown Bag Lunches:  AFP MA conducts a series of Brown Bag Lunches annually, with topics targeting specific challenges faced by development professionals and providing for audience interaction.

Fundraising Basics Course:  This two-day introduction to fundraising held every four months is for new development professionals and volunteers.  With more than 150 participants annually, acknowledgement of sponsors to this audience provides sponsors with a platform to reach those who are embarking on a fundraising career and allows sponsors to make an immediate impression on tomorrow’s executives and decision makers.

AFP MA Member Networking Event:  The chapter provides member networking events from time to time where members can share an evening of networking with peers and a formal presentation on a topic of interest.
