Thanksgiving is this week, so I am reflecting on what I am grateful for this year. You and the team at AmFund are on that list. I am so blessed by all the kindness and excellence and generosity you poured into our event. Praying you have a wonderful thanksgiving with your loved ones! Grateful for you!
I am thankful and humble for your wisdom and time during the online auction as it was so last-minute. But, by the grace of God through you, we gained and did not lose! Amen! Thank you for your kindness and servitude to our wounded vets and shelter dogs of now 1,400 nationwide we’ve been able to bless.
Your Constant Friend,
Founder and CEO
“My first perfect session! Lovely speakers, the energy was peaceful supportive, kind, compassionate—exactly what it should be for non-profits. Tons of good ideas, makes me want to find a way to work with them, without them ever advertising a program or service. Attracting rather than promoting. I even applied for their grant during the session. They should do a master class for other presenters on effective presenting.”
–Nonprofit Changemakers Session Attendee
Thank you for all your help with the Tennessee Innocence Project’s Annual Fundraiser this year. It is so nice to work with you all again in my new role. I look forward to working with you again for our event next year.
Thank you so very much for your donation made to Breast Cancer Support Services from the trips sold at the 2021 Pink Passion for Fashion Event. Your donation will help make our mission to serve women diagnosed with breast cancer possible.

Joelle and Mary represented AmFund very well and made our life much easier with their presence, knowledge, interactions, and professionalism. Monica’s guidance was beneficial in the months leading up to the event while answering questions and proving information to KETCH Development Director Paula Hanna. Her years of experience plus familiarity with KETCH from previous events proved to be helpful. We had a great turnout and guests have been very complimentary of the event.
You were a joy to work with at the Dragonfly Grand Gala. You are so pleasant and work so well with our guests! You sold so many trips for us and we appreciate all that you did to help raise money for Dragonfly at our Gala while accommodating our guests. You did an amazing job and I hope we get to work together again in February!
All the best,

Thank you again!

I just wanted to say "thank you" again for the personal delivery of wonderful news. This time of incredible need makes the process of finding funders that much harder but that much sweeter when we have success. I put my soul into writing proposals and am ever so humbled when the facts and stories about the affliction of breast cancer reach the heart of a generous donor. Please know how much this grant means to the Ellie Fund team and to me personally.
Director of Development
We cannot thank you enough for your assistance with our first virtual event. Kalley was on top of every need and made this part of the event simple for us to accomplish.

Play for P.I.N.K.
Thanks to your dedication, and despite the challenges we faced, Play for P.I.N.K. was able to donate $3 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for 2020, bringing our cumulative contribution to over $65 million. Our organization would not be able to help advance the world’s most promising research without the generosity and support of AmFund, and we are indebted to you for making this possible. Please know your involvement is having a tremendous impact.
Thanks From KETCH!
AmFund is a great addition to our fundraising event. They provide detailed outlines of the trips at the event, a representative to explain the trips to event attendees, and as an organization we aren't at risk of losing any money. If a trip for some reason doesn't sell, there is no further action required by us. They take care of all the details, which is a HUGE relief! Our event is elegant, and AmFund is a perfect enhancement to help raise more funds in support of KETCH.
Amfund is amazing! It was such an honor working with them and partnering to help EmpowHERment. Barbara and Kalley were truly great and we can't wait to partner with them in the future!
Tri 4 Schools
We have worked with AmFund for the past four years, and they have gone above and beyond every time to support our events and mission. Not only have they answered every question within 24 hours, but they provide marketing materials, supported our events in person, and worked with our donors directly to help offload our limited staff. We would wholeheartedly endorse anyone working with them to support the important non-profit work they are doing.

We are grateful of your selection of our cause and look forward to working with you in the future. Your team was great!" Saunders & Sally Dixon (Directors)
"After doing much research on AmFund and finding only positive reviews, I committed to working with your team, though I was still a bit skeptical about the promises she made-it wouldn't cost me anything and she didn't need anything the night of the event other than a table, a linen, and a wall socket. Your DD blew me away with her professionalism and happy attitude, and I would recommend your team to anyone holding a fundraising event."
-Kelly (Executive Director)
"On behalf of the Tropical Nights' Planning Committee and the entire CARD family, we would like to thank you for celebrating our 13th Annual Tropical Nights with us.

But it is and AmFund did what they said they would do - they helped me raise additional funds at my events for Hope Hospice/Hope Healthcare.
