Sponsor “Best of the State Connecticut Philanthropy Awards Breakfast”

AFP Connecticut and AFP Fairfield County chapters have a long history of collaborating annually to recognize individuals, corporations and foundations, who have given exemplary service to their communities.  Last year, we attracted many sponsors and large audiences from the philanthropic and corporate world, with 2016’s event attracting a sold-out audience of nearly 250 individuals. We believe that there is great value for sponsors who wish to reach such a select audience.  If your products and services will help our members be more effective fundraisers and professionals in the field, consider sponsoring.
