Monkey Challenges had the opportunity to attend the Association of Fundraising Professionals Luncheon yesterday at the Grove in Anaheim.

AFP Orange County hosts several various events throughout the year and strives to provide you the tools and connections you need to excel:

- A sound mentoring program
- SNAP programs
- Networking events, seasonal receptions and happy hours to stay connected with members
There were two speakers who presented the 2016 Giving Report followed the 2016 U.S. Trust® Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy. The information and takeaways we learned were invaluable. The philanthropic community donated $390.05 billion dollars last year alone and of those contributions only approximately 7% of those are donated via online. Imagine the impact that we could make if more individuals had access to other online platforms like Monkey Challenges as resource to donate.
