Hi all! Does anyone know of professional organizations geared towards fundraising professionals in behavioral health and/or substance abuse (something akin to NORDP for Research Development folks)?
Hi! I'm checking in with some of my fundraising connections to see if they are aware of any professional organizations that focus specifically in these areas. Another avenue to pursue is to see if the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has special interest groups that network with other fundraising professionals who focus in that area. https://afpglobal.org/
I just checked with a few people and learned that AFP members have affinity groups and they have one for health. They were not aware of an org specific to mental health or substance abuse though. Hope this helps!
Thank you so much, Tammy! I will look into AFP's affinity groups. Cheers! Daniela
Oh - and look what I just found! Association of Healthcare Philanthropy. This might be an even better resource. If you find it helpful - let us know! https://www.ahp.org/about-AHP
