2021 Conference RFP

The St. Louis Chapter of AFP invites you to submit session proposals to be considered for the 2021 Virtual AFP St. Louis Conference on Thursday, August 12, 2021. The theme this year is Making Lemonade!

The last year has taught us to collaborate and reframe how we approach a lot of things in life, including fundraising. Through conference sessions, we seek to share lessons learned, including how to make lemonade with lemons, whether that includes adapting approaches to special events, planned giving, and team expectations, or creating an inclusive community.

The St. Louis Chapter of AFP is grateful for your interest in presenting on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at our virtual 2021 AFP St. Louis Gateway to Philanthropy Conference. We look forward to reviewing your proposal for your recipes for fundraising success.

Submit your session proposal below by May 14, 2021.

By submitting your speaking proposal, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
• Submission of a proposal does not guarantee participation in the 2021 AFP St. Louis Conference.
• Submission of a proposal confirms that you will be available for rehearsal on August 11, 2021 (times to be announced) and for the conference on August 12, 2021 (8:30 am - 2:30 pm).
• Individuals must complete the submission process in its entirety. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
• If the submission is selected, AFP St. Louis reserves the right to revise program titles and edit the program summary for promotional materials associated with conference.
• If the submission is selected, information regarding important deadlines and requirements will be provided and must be adhered to.

AFP St. Louis in partnership with AFP Global adhere to these core values:
• We need and respect new and creative ideas.
• We are teachers and learners responsible for our education and growth.
• We believe in the Platinum Rule. Treat others as they want to be treated.
• We choose to be an inclusive organization that upholds respect, creativity, education and equity.

We will choose presentations that demonstrate and exemplify these core values including having diverse presenters and panelists.


AFP St. Louis programs are learning experiences and are noncommercial. Under no circumstances should an educational session be used for direct promotion of a speaker's product, service, or other self-interest.


All proposal submitters should be aware of AFP’s Code of Ethics and apply and incorporate the principles as appropriate when developing content for presentations. If you plan to present the work or research of others in writing on your materials, you must attribute the sources in full and in writing on the materials.
