AFP Ottawa has the tools that you need to help your community find the joy in giving, to advance your charity’s mission, and to propel your career. Educational and networking opportunities, our Fundraising Day Conference and the Philanthropy Awards are popular draws. The mentorship program for those new to the profession, CFRE study groups for those advancing to the next level and information updates meet the needs of fundraisers at all levels.
