President's Message
Lyn Downing, CFRE




With Valentine's Day memories still fresh, it's a good time to share a little love and appreciation for our wonderful chapter.


I want to begin by saying thank you for being a member of the Fort Worth Metro AFP Chapter. Your time is very valuable and we appreciate that you support the profession through your membership and involvement in monthly activities.


Whether you work for a small non-profit or are part of larger team, your work as a professional fundraiser always includes a dynamic mix of the art and science of creating and nurturing philanthropic relationships.


While we often have so much on our plates, at times it can be overwhelming. I've often heard it said that ... while I love my work, I wish sometimes there were a little less to love on some days....

Welcome To Our New Members


So glad you have joined us!  Let us know what we can do for you.  That's why we're here.
