Honoring a Member for Greatest Achievement in the Past Year

Members of the DMFA community are unique. They are dedicated professionals who help non-profit fundraising organizations grow their member base, donor contributions and revenue to provide the essential resources for organizations to fulfill their missions. Too often the scale of these efforts is under-appreciated. That’s why in 2002, the DMFA created the Marketer of the Year Award as a way to honor a member with the greatest marketing achievement in the past year.

The Marketer of the Year Award is typically presented at one of our signature events. The winner is presented with a special plaque, acknowledged in the DMFA newsletter Forum, and is spotlighted on the DMFA website throughout the year.

The nomination deadline for the 2022 Marketer of the Year is October 29, 2022.

Please note that only nominations by members will be considered for this honor. If you are not a member, you can join today.
