                      AFP MEMPHIS CHAPTER DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP

AFP Memphis Board is awarding a scholarship each year to a diverse organization that is
not a member of AFP. Our hope is that we can “seek and achieve a broad representation of
experiences, perspectives, opinions and cultures” within our local AFP Chapter. The AFP
membership will be awarded to one person from an organization that otherwise might not
join AFP because they either do not have the funds to join or because they have not been
exposed to all that AFP has to offer. Deadline for applying is January 21, 2011. Attached is
an application form (also available online at www.afpmemphis.org) which you are encour-
aged to share with a worthy organization. If you have any questions concerning the Diver-
sity Scholarship please contact Connie Gonitzke at cgonitzke@transplants.org.

national Conference on Fundraising. The AFP Memphis Board Scholarship for $1,000 can
