The Meyers Scholarship for the 2024 AFPGV Regional Conference

Deadline for applications: April 30, 2024

*We will offer up to FIVE Meyers Scholarships*


The Meyers Fund was established to honor Daniel M. Meyers and his contributions to the fundraising profession. Recognizing that many local organizations cannot afford the cost of professional development, Mr. Meyers, in conjunction with the AFP Genesee Valley Chapter, has committed to helping non-profit professionals increase their knowledge and skills through this scholarship program.  Each applicant selected will receive a scholarship that will cover the entire conference registration fee.
