AFP President to visit Montana
The President and CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals to present in Montana
Billings, MT—AFP-MT, MNA, Leadership MT and First Security Bank Present: Beyond The Economy: Social Impact and the Quiet Revolution. AFP-MT is thrilled to partner with the Montana Nonprofit Association, Leadership Montana and First Security Bank to provide an incredible opportunity for non-profit, business and community leaders to attend a special presentation by Andrew Watt, president and CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
Since 2008, the economy and the global recession have dominated the outlook, philosophy and thinking of our charitable communities. This focus has masked significant and far-reaching changes that have transformed the way non profit work is funded - and the attitudes of those who invest in charities. According to the Montana Department of Labor and Industry’s 2011 Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, over 34% of Montana’s 501(c)(3) nonprofits pay wages, employing over 10.6% of Montana’s workforce, providing a total wage contribution to Montana’s GDP in the amount of $1.54 Billion dollars, which is incredible.
Andrew Watt, FInstF (Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Fundraising), the President and CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals will explore the quiet revolution that has transformed the way in which the obstacles and opportunities of our new philanthropic environment are approached. Andrew will provide an overview of the current state of philanthropy and offer a glimpse into what the future may hold.
