Reagan Lynch - Chair


Dear GPF Supporters,

Thank you for all of your support over the years.

In 2023, with your generous support we were able to award over 50 scholarships to support the professional development of grant professionals. To help with scholarships we were able to raise over $15,000 at our annual silent auction held in conjunction with the GrantSummit powered by GPA.

We want to thank the GPA chapters for their support. We received donations from 24 chapters in 2023. In 2024, we are asking each chapter to commit $200. If a chapter can give more, we greatly appreciate that, but a $200 donation from each chapter will raise over $10,000 toward our Be A Star chapter campaign.

The GPF, along with the Grant Professionals Association, continues to see dramatic growth in the profession, particularly among young professionals. In 2024, the GPF board welcomes seven new board members, giving us a full 15-member board.

As you plan your giving in 2024, please do not forget the GPF and make a donation to support the profession. We look forward to seeing everyone at the end of October in Denver.
