PAFN is a member-driven organization, and our monthly meetings are a great opportunity for members to connect, network and learn together. Professional development is central to our meetings, and we invite a variety of speakers to address relevant topics during our sessions. 

Our monthly professional development and networking sessions are hosted from September to May. Join us at the Alzheimer Society (18-360 George St. N, Peterborough) or via Zoom.

Not a PAFN member? Join PAFN now, or register on Eventbrite for ad hoc meeting attendance.

Our workshops are a great opportunity for members to deep-dive into a specific topic relating to fundraising. These sessions are typically longer than our monthly meetings, so set aside some time and join us! 


Join us for our next in-person social and networking event. Our socials are a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow fundraisers and build your network right here in Peterborough!
