    Welcome, NC Regional Representative, Amy Jackson!

    Amy is the Assistant Vice President of Foundation Relations and Development at Wingate University.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has affected so many financially, professionally, and personally. The Apra Carolinas board understands that these limitations may place restrictions on professional development, especially on those from newer and smaller nonprofit organizations. To combat these hardships, we offer our members a Professional Development Scholarship every year, which awards up to $1,500 to cover professional development costs incurred through our chapter or Apra International. 

    And, new this year, the board has approved the creation of a limited number of Apra Carolinas Membership Scholarships, which would cover the $35 membership fee for 2021 for those based in North & South Carolina.

    It is our Chapter’s hope that these resources provide some support to not only those financially burdened by the current climate, but also those underrepresented in the prospect development field.

    DEADLINE TO APPLY: February 28th, 2021

    Applications and more information can be found on our Scholarships & Grants page.
