We were able to catch-up with Tiffani Kimball, our 2017 recipient of the Chamberlain Scholarship. Here's what she had to say:


1. What was your favorite session and why?

  • Stewardship At It's Best with Dr. Adrian Sargeant: It was a nice reminder that as fundraisers, stewardship should always be at the core of what we do. It's so vital, not only to the donor, but also to the longevity of their giving to your organization. There is no more important concept than stewardship to the overall success of a nonprofit - start and end each day by delivering it to a donor!


2. Was there something you learned that you were able to implement into your development/fundraising role? 

  • I learned so many things that it's hard to choose. One thing is to be intentional as a fundraiser. Donors are counting on you to be engaging, to deliver on your promises, to be enthusiastic about your organization's mission and to facilitate a deep, long-lasting friendship/partnership.


3. What was the best thing you did in New Orleans? And best thing you ate?

  • I'm from Louisiana, so getting to enjoy authentic Cajun food - ALL OF IT - was a treat! Gumbo was probably the favorite! Oh and of course the beignets :) The best thing I did was have dinner with friends from the Houston chapter. Even though we all live in Houston, it's hard to find the time to get together. An event like this helped us to easily coordinate and it was great!


4. Would you encourage other AFP chapter members to apply for this scholarship? Why?

  • Absolutely! Often times people are shy about submitting because they feel like they won't have a chance with 600+ members. But, that's just not the case. Apply! This conference is a memorable experience that brings fun, networking, and an opportunity to elevate your fundraising career.
