News & Upcoming Events

Soul food: Feeding your soul so you can nourish others
Friday, January 20, 2017 (11:30 - 1:00), Monthly Luncheon

2017 is finally here. Let's dive in together and start the year off on our best foot. 

Everybody, at one time or another, has felt it: “hangry.” You know the feeling - when you haven’t eaten in just a bit too long, and the memories of 2016 are too much to handle. 

There’s more to what we’re hungry for in life than just we’re putting into our bodies. In fact, the food we eat is just one small way that we can nourish ourselves, energize ourselves, and get the most out of life. 

Join AFP on January 20th and learn the principles of soul fed living - find out what really feeds you and transform the way you live and work in 2017. As Central Texas development professionals, we owe it to the community we serve to make 2017 our best year yet!

Thursday, January 26, 2017 (7:30am-9:00am), Williamson County Breakfast 

Every fundraising entity is dealing with donors, members, volunteers and gifts.  Technology can help you keep track of them and grow them to their fullest potential.  But not everyone can afford Raiser’s Edge.  This meeting will help you prioritize what your office needs, which products best suit you, and how best to implement free apps and software to achieve your goals.  Jennifer Graham will facilitate the session with best practices and new ideas, and participants will work in groups to discuss the products they use and the creative ways they stretch their resources.
