Our chapter represents fundraising professionals across Vancouver Island and we are your one-stop shop for information, education, certification, job-postings and networking events for professional and volunteer fundraisers. It is our mission to support you in your professional fundraising journey and help you feel supported, connected and educated about the philanthropic process so that you can create a culture of philanthropy in your organization!
We are a completely volunteer led chapter. If you are interested in getting more involved with AFP VI please attend our events and reach out to our board members and learn more about our committees and areas of activity. We are always welcoming new committee members to support us with our strategic objectives. We can be reached at email@example.com.

National Philanthropy Day
Each year, National Philanthropy Day (NPD) on Vancouver Island provides an opportunity to gather to celebrate the generosity of our community and learn new skills to apply to the philanthropic sector. In the past, we have shared in our celebration and professional development through three events: the National Philanthropy Day Awards Ceremony, Masterclass, and Youth Session.
We have adapted National Philanthropy Day 2021 to provide the Vancouver Island community with an opportunity to highlight outstanding acts of philanthropy, learn from one another, and celebrate together during these uncertain times, while protecting the health and safety of everyone.
