About West Suburban Philanthropic Network [WSPN]
In 1986, a group of fund development professionals began meeting in the western suburbs of Chicago. Seven years later, this group was invited by the Chicago Chapter of the National Society of Fund Raising Executives (better known today as the Association of Fundraising Professionals) to participate in a special interest group. By the fall of 2002, the group had grown so large it was no longer simply a special interest group, its new name was the West Suburban Philanthropic Network. Today, WSPN serves over 200 members and is an independent 501(c)(3) organization. For more information, visit http://wspnonline.org.
