    Staying involved: Jennifer Burland Adams, founder of the Bermuda Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals


Young Bermudians are being encouraged to consider a career in fundraising.

The Bermuda Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals., in a statement, said: “AFP Bermuda is committed to investing in and supporting the mentoring, training and development of professionals involved in raising funds in Bermuda — these individuals are often in specific roles such as director of advancement/fundraising, consultant, or blended roles such as executive director, CEO, managing director, trustee, board member or volunteer.

“We are fortunate to have some very experienced fundraising talent supporting well-run services in Bermuda, and we are encouraging young Bermudians to consider this as a career opportunity as they look for careers full of meaning and impact.”

The Chapter has announced its 2018 leadership team, which is tasked with supporting the growing membership, training and development and maintaining affiliation with AFP International.

The team is headed by chairman Gordon Johnson, with Tammalita Astwood and Ann Spencer-Arscott as deputy chairmen; Kelly Hunt (communications); Jane Vickers (member at large); and Jennifer Burland Adams (past chairwoman and treasurer).

In a statement, the team said it is pleased to build on the hard work and accomplishments of Mrs Burland Adams, the founding chairwoman and the first Bermudian to qualify as a Certified Fundraising Executive.

Mrs Burland Adams established the AFP Bermuda Chapter while managing the ‘Leading the Way’ capital campaign to establish an innovation centre and arts wing at the Bermuda High School for Girls.

She said: “It has been a pleasure, and something I’m very proud of, being involved with the establishment of AFP Bermuda, and working directly with so many individuals and organisations committed to developing ethical fundraising and deepening their knowledge of best practices in Bermuda.

“There are many people who worked with me to start AFP Bermuda, and it is appropriate to highlight and thank Theresa Hall, who has completed her board service and who helped with our incorporation, governance and secretarial functions.

“I am looking forward to staying involved and welcome Gordon Johnson to the role of chairman.”
