An Intimate Conversation With Charity Navigator CEO Michael Thatcher

This year’s first Members Only program started off with a bang.

Twenty-five AFP members had the exclusive opportunity to connect with and meet Charity Navigator CEO Michael Thatcher and Program Analyst Kevin Doyle.

Thatcher presented an up-to-the-minute overview of current trends at Charity Navigator and then opened up the meeting to questions from our members.

Whether the questions addressed issues specific to their organizations or were more general in nature, all in attendance found the meeting to be keenly insightful.

The message from Charity Navigator was clear:  They want to hear from AFP members.  If you have a question, you can send your email to

Look for Charity Navigator at Fundraising Day in New York.  They will be at a booth in the Solution Center.

STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT MEMBERS ONLY PROGRAM.  It will take place in Brooklyn, in the spring, and will be our first, ever, Members Only program in one of the boroughs.

REMEMBER:  Members Only programs are a FREE BENEFIT, open only to AFP members in good standing.   

I want to hear from you, too!

If you have ideas for future programs, telephone  me at 212.486.7382 or  email

See you there!
