Announcement: AFP Membership Dues Increase

13 May 2019

As you may have heard, AFP Global will be increasing its dues for Professional and Associate members by $30 annually effective July 1, 2019. This is the first time in 10 years that an increase has occurred to these categories, which accounts for about 60% of all memberships. This change is being made now to continue to develop and enhance benefits and services, as well as ensure adequate resources to meet future member needs.

AFP Utah is committed to our mission of enabling people and organizations to practice ethical and effective fundraising through exceptional programming, professsional development, and networking opportunities. Like AFP Global, our chapter has continually taken strides to meet and exceed the needs of our members. We recently started a scholarship program for young development professional to underwrite their membership dues, recently hosted our first Membership Appreciation Event, recognize the philanthropy leaders in our community through Utah Philanthropy Day, and listened to member feedback to enhance our educational opportunities like our Fundraising Day Conference and Fundamentals of Fundraising Conference.

Thanks to the support of our local members and generous sponsors, we will not be increasing our chapter dues at this time. AFP Utah is committed to serving our members and community fundraisers as Utah's only organization dedicated to the professional development of fundraisers in the state.

For more information on the AFP Global membership increase or if you have questions or comments, please email AFP Global or read more here. If you have a question or a comment about what AFP Utah provides, please send us an email at .

Thank you,

AFP - Utah Chapter Board of Directors

Kim Correa, Executive Director of The INN Between, was awarded the 2018 Outstanding Development Officer award at AFP Utah Chapter's Fundraising Day conference on April 11.

She was nominated by her colleague Matilda Lindgren, who lists the following as only a few of Kim's accomplishments:

      1. Locating an existing building that doubled the organization's bed count at a fraction of the cost of a proposed new building.

      2. Securing two loans to acquire the building. 

      3. Prior to and during the 2018 Legislative Session, (with the help of former Representative Kory Holdaway), meeting with many legislators to share the good work The INN Between is doing.

We are sure that, by now, Kim has even more impressive work under her belt.  AFP Utah Chapter can't imagine a member of our community more deserving of the Outstanding Development Officer award.  Congrats, Kim!
