The Northwest Arkansas Chapter has been named a 2020 Ten Star GOLD Chapter. Every year, AFP, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world, honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star GOLD Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. 

Less than 20 percent of AFP’s 243 chapters earn the Ten Star Gold Chapter recognition, making AFP of NWA one of the association’s leading chapters around the world. 

AND Congratulations to The Northwest Arkansas Chapter! We had the highest participation rate in our chapter grouping last year for the BE the CAUSE Campaign! Thank you to Allison McElroy for always providing great leadership for our chapter in this campaign!!
