a network of likeminded nonprofit professionals

Peterborough and Area Fundraisers’ Network (PAFN) was formally created in 1997 to strengthen professionalism within our local charitable sector including our members, interested individuals and organizations.

Over the years, PAFN has grown into a robust network of individuals and organizations who work collaboratively to share ideas and strengthen our local community. Our members are all from non-profit organizations across Peterborough and the Kawarthas. PAFN offers numerous networking opportunities as well as an exceptional speaker series for our members (as well as their boards), to continue their professional development.

The PAFN members' space has been really helpful in my work learning how to understand and manage fundraising in a small NFP organization!  A quick thank you for the work you do to bring this service to our community!

Never underestimate PAFN power! Not only does this group provide support and wisdom, but its members have helped me to generate new partnerships that have paid off generously. Thank you to everyone who shares their positive energy within the group and with the organizations they build.

I am a long time member of PAFN and I have had the opportunity to sit on the Executive and have been called upon to consult. I remain committed to professional development in fundraising and volunteer management in our changing world
