Welcome to the Association of Donor Relations Professionals!
Welcome to the Association of Donor Relations Professionals, the internationally recognized professional development organization for donor relations and stewardship practitioners. ADRP also welcomes among its members fundraisers interested in building stronger relationships with donors and companies who provide goods and services to further the work of organizations seeking philanthropic support. While ADRP is relatively new, having been founded in 2004, its growth and reach reflect the increasing importance of fundraising to the nonprofit sector. In fact, organizations are recognizing that the basic tools of donor relations – gift acceptance, gift acknowledgment, donor recognition, and impact reporting –need additional strategic thinking and programming to help keep donors deeply engaged and giving. As the bar of donor expectations continues to rise, organizations can look to ADRP to provide timely, fresh, actionable, and effective best practices for those whose job is to interact with and respond to donors in cost-effective ways.
