What’s in a name?

May 21, 2012

At the April 2012 Chapter Meeting, our members voted to change our Chapter’s name from Greater Milwaukee to Southeastern Wisconsin. Why, you might ask?

We have members and potential members within our jurisdiction who did not see themselves as being part of the Greater Milwaukee area. To be more inclusive of the geographic diversity of our chapter, we decided to change our name.

This change may make it easier to recruit new members and build collaborations with other not-for-profits, professional groups, and academic institutions. We may also be able to secure underwriting for the Chapter from additional corporations who are regionally based.

Welcome to the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter! We develop fundraising professionals and inspire a culture of philanthropy in Southeastern Wisconsin.
