About AFP Collier-Lee (formerly Everglades)
What We Do
Founded in 1994, The Collier-Lee Chapter (formerly Everglades Chapter) serves Collier and Lee Counties in Southwest Florida.
We collaborate with local organizations including the Greater Naples Area Planned Giving Council (GNAPGC), the Center for Nonprofit Excellence at Hodges University, and the Community Foundation of Collier County to offer professional development programs for fundraising professionals.
We offer approximately 8 programs each year, including a half-day symposium with the GNAPGC on planned giving each June. These programs are open to both AFP members, GNAPGC membes and non-members.
We sponsor a National Philanthropy Day celebration in November.
See our Event Calendar for details on our programs for the coming months. The calendar is updated regularly. To receive email notification of upcoming events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address.
