Our Story

AGN was founded in 2010 to help annual giving professionals share information and ideas. While we originally did this through an online networking group, we quickly grew with expanded offerings including a job board, special reports, articles, and a library of samples and tools.

Today, AGN serves the entire advancement community by helping academic institutions discover best practices and strengthen their base of philanthropic support. Leveraging our network of nearly 100 subject matter experts, we identify the industry’s most successful and innovative ideas. We empower thousands of staff and volunteers through our research publications, live webinars, interactive workshops, and personalized coaching, providing guidance and resources to improve strategies and optimize results.

AGN proudly serves more than 400 organizations through our institutional membership program, which provides unlimited access to all of our resources. Members also receive discounts on workshops, job advertisements, program assessments, and other services.
