Registration & Pricing
I am trying to register, but my membership number is not working or it gives me an error message saying that my number does not match my last name.
The first step, is to try the following troubleshooting tip (ensuring your membership is up to date and the name you entered matches the name associated with the membership ID): If you received a member card with 12-digits, use the last 8-digits of the card. If you received a member card with 6 or 7 digits, add as many zeroes as needed in front of the Membership ID number to make it an 8-digit number.
2. How much does it cost to attend Fundraising Day?
Prices differ depending on the type of registration you choose and whether or not you are an AFP member. You can see a list of all of our registration options and prices here.
3. How do I register for individual sessions?
When completing the registration form you will be prompted to indicate which sessions you would like to attend. Please note that registration pricing is the same whether you select one session or all of them. To learn more about registration prices, click here.
4. How do I register as part of a group?
Groups of two or more, and five or more colleagues from the same organization are eligible for a 15% and 20% discount, respectively. To qualify for the group discount, all colleagues must be registered under the same transaction. You can register as a group by entering each group member’s individual information on the registration form and then by clicking ‘Save and Add Another Registrant’ – this will collect each member’s information and create a single event registration order. Group discounts will automatically be applied at checkout, where you can choose to pay online or request an invoice.
5. I was filling out the registration form and accidentally clicked on a session by mistake. How can I fix this? Will I be charged extra for this?
We ask you to indicate which sessions you’re interested in attending in order to ensure we have adequate space, chairs, refreshments etc. This helps us when it comes to planning event logistics and in facilitating interactive, engaging discussions on the day-of. You’re more than welcome to change your mind about which sessions you’d like to attend and won’t be charged extra for doing so. We ask that you please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make changes to sessions you have previously registered for. This allows us to ensure all of our attendance numbers are up to date and helps us to know when sessions have reached their capacity. We encourage you to review our cancellation policy should you no longer be able to attend once registered.
6. I am unfortunately no longer able to attend Fundraising Day – can I get a refund?
We ask that you please review our cancellation policy prior to registering. If you choose to cancel your registration on or before May 1, you will be eligible for a refund (less a $50.00 administration fee). However, all registrations made after May 1 are non-refundable. No refunds will be given to no-shows, however registration substitutes are welcome - please contact us at email@example.com to update your registration information.
7. How do I pay for registration?
You will be prompted to enter your billing information and then to select a payment method when registering. If you choose to pay online by credit card, you will be prompted to enter your credit card information. We accept Visa, MasterCard and AMEX. If you choose to be invoiced, you will receive an invoice via e-mail upon completing registration at the e-mail indicated on your registration form.
