Be the Cause


The BE the CAUSE Campaign is the cooperative, annual fund campaign of the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy and our AFP Alabama Chapter.

Fundraisers, like you, play a major role in transforming society. The BE the CAUSE Campaign supports the profession and works in the interest of the public good. With your gift, you are supporting: 

  • professional education
  • leadership development
  • ethical and effective fundraising practice.

When you make a gift to the BE the CAUSE Campaign, you are investing in the profession’s future and advancing philanthropy. Your gift is a strategic investment in your chapter and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy, supporting key initiatives such as:

    To attract fundraisers and donors who reflect the diverse communities of our society.

    To help fundraising professionals succeed at all stages of their careers.

    To increase knowledge of philanthropy for effective fundraising practices.

    To provide fundraisers with educational and networking opportunities

The AFP Alabama Chapter has the opportunity to receive back between 25 to 35% of the funds raised each year based fundraising totals related to our goals set by AFP Global.

Thank you to all of the Be The Cause Donors who helped us reach our large goal for 2023!
