Our Story

AGN began with a goal: to help school advancement programs access great ideas. While this was initially done through our newsletter and online networks, we expanded our offerings over the years to include webinars, workshops, a job board, a library of information, and a suite of services such as program assessments, recruiting, and coaching.

Today, AGN serves the entire advancement community by helping educational institutions strengthen their base of philanthropic support. Through our research and training programs, we share the industry’s best practices with school advancement professionals. By identifying the most innovative and effective ideas, and translating them into accessible tactics, we empower teams to be more strategic, collaborative, and productive.

AGN proudly supports more than 400 organizations through our institutional membership program, which provides unlimited access to our online resources including instructional webinars, articles, samples, templates and reports. Members also receive discounts on workshops, job board ads, program assessments, recruiting and other services.
