AFP Ottawa’s Professional Development Series

Upcoming events:


Tales from the Shadows – How conversations on ethical fundraising practices can prevent future hauntings.

Do stories keep you up at night?
Are you haunted by something you read?
Do you dread hearing whispered stories in the hallway?
October is Ethics Awareness Month and AFP Ottawa is proud to host this interactive session that will explore ethical practices, case studies, and the questions that need to be asked at all levels of charitable operations.
Come hear about real and potential situations which you could face, and the best practices that can help you make it out of bone chilling ethical dilemmas. To learn more visit
