Strategic Plan

The Association of Fundraising Professionals – West Michigan Chapter is flourishing. During the 2013-2015 strategic planning period the chapter dramatically increased membership, in large part due to outstanding and thoughtful programming, careful attention to meeting the needs of chapter members, and focusing aggressively on building professionalism in the chapter to increase respect of the profession and help fundraisers in the region become the most highly skilled and effective professionals that they can be.

We strongly believe in the strategic planning process and monitoring our progress on a regular basis to continue forward momentum and not get bogged down in matters of unimportance. We launched into the 2017-2019 strategic planning process with enthusiasm, knowing we face a bright future ahead.
