New Info Resource for AFP Members

I’ve written two pieces for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Information Exchange series.  The Information Exchange is designed to leverage the knowledge and experience of thousands of AFP members around the world.  Writers submit short papers on a variety of subjects.  The Information Exchange pieces focus on practical, “how-to” topics that can help fundraising professionals in their daily work.  The Information Exchange papers are available to AFP members at no charge as a member benefit.

The two papers recently posted are Talking About Your Own Gift and Those of Others – Including a Handy List of 12 “Ask Phrases” and Engaging Your Colleagues to Become Part of the Fundraising Team

While these papers are normally only available to AFP members, if you contact me directly at Capital Development Strategies, I can send you a copy.  However, if you are a fundraising professional, I highly encourage you to join AFP.  It’s worth the investment!

    I wholeheartedly concur with regards to joining AFP. I’m looking forward to reading your papers, particularly Talking About Your Own Gift and Those of Others – Including a Handy List of 12 “Ask Phrases”.

  2. We have developed a fundraising website,, which allows fundraisers to have a video web-a-thon to fundraise for their nonprofit. Donations are made through pledges per video of their video and business sponsorship. We are recently launched and would love feedback on our site from the nonprofit community. If anyone has time please visit our site and email us with feedback. We would like to know if you feel this is a good tool for nonprofits, how you feel about the price, etc.

    I would be happy to give anyone interested free use of our site to get some case studies going. It is a great way to fundraise for your nonprofit free of charge. Email me at if your interested.

    I appreciate your time,

    Kim Shircliffe-Kerfoot
    CEO / Co-Founder
