All NAPFA members are invited to participate on a NCEF committee. No formal experience is required, just an interest in advancing the work of the Foundation. Committee members participate in monthly or bi-monthly committee calls and work on specific projects within their committee. Contact Rob Harkey, Foundation Program Coordinator, at or (847) 483-5400 ext. 106 to express your interest in volunteering.

NCEF committees include:

  • Programs
  • Fundraising/Development
  • Communications
  • Governance

The Programs Committee ensures the Foundation’s programs are focused on our mission and are meeting the needs of NAPFA members. The committee always looks to add partnerships with organizations where NAPFA members can share their time and skills.

The Fundraising/Development Committee works on projects related to raising money for the Foundation including the annual appeal. This committee also recognizes donors for their contributions and works on outreach efforts.

The Communications Committee creates the content for various NAFPA communication vehicles. The committee works to highlight the work of pro bono advisors in our NCEF programs and to showcase our donors.

The Governance Committee provides the framework for the Foundation. Activities include recruiting and training new board members, reviewing formal documents of the Foundation and overseeing board effectiveness.
