Dear [___Employer___],

Apra Metro DC is the hallmark prospect development organization in the local area. As we look to stretch our professional development budget, I wanted to advocate that [___Org name___] make the investment in Apra Metro DC’s nominal membership fee of $25. Additionally, if I am able to join within calendar 2020, I will be granted membership for all of 2021 without having to renew again until 2022. This membership provides me with powerful, unique learning opportunities that positively impact [___Org name’s___] bottom line:

  • Industry-leading education, best practices, strategies, and other content within the pillars of prospect development, research, relationship management, data analytics, and campaigns, as well as access to vendor expertise and advanced usage

  • Direct connections to the best and brightest fundraising and nonprofit thought leaders and presenters from our own backyard as well as internationally

  • Exclusive rights to archives of key digital content, including the Apra Metro DC blog and webinar recordings

  • Volunteer opportunities to grow cutting-edge skills in new ways, networking with and learning directly from colleagues at peer organizations

  • Significantly reduced rate to the acclaimed Apra Metro DC annual conference, the touchstone of the Apra Metro DC experience

  • Insider invitations to membership-only events with Apra DC and our fellow Mid-Atlantic chapters: MD, VA, PA, and Carolinas.

  • Eligibility to apply for chapter scholarships valued at more than $1,000, which can be applied to one of several professional development offerings


 I’m excited to bring this level of expertise to [___Org name___].


Thank you for your consideration,
