“The Maurice Gurin Scholarship gave me a fantastic opportunity to learn from leaders in fundraising and philanthropy. I appreciated the diversity of fundraisers and organizations presenting at Fundraising Day (now PhilanthroCon!), from small social justice organizations with expertise in engaging donors representative of the community they serve, to larger nonprofits engaging channels I had never really even considered, such as text messaging. Every person I heard from left me with great pearls of wisdom, and because of the virtual format, I was able to revisit impactful sessions at my leisure. Thanks to the scholarship, I was inspired to become an official member of AFP-NYC so that I could continue learning from the best and brightest fundraisers around.”
