How the AFP Foundation helps YOU:

  • Training opportunities through scholarship funds like the Ralph E. Chamberlain Scholarships (for AFP’s annual International Conference on Fundraising and other scholarships for education programs
  • Chapter Awardsfunded by the Foundation, celebrate and acknowledge outstanding support of the annual fund and grants for chapter activities that advance ethical and effective fundraising.  The purpose of the EMC Chapter Partnership Grant is to increase awareness, participation in educational activities and diversity in the profession and in AFP.  The grants are also used to promote career planning and the Code of Ethics
  • Growth in Knowledge and Wisdom - Grants are made for AFP strategic initiatives that advance ethical and effective fundraising like diversity programs, ethics education, and the Essentials of Fundraising series of classes developed to meet the real-world needs and challenges nonprofit leaders face every day.  The Foundation also seeks to inspire the next generation of philanthropists through support of Youth in Philanthropy programs.
  • Learn more about best practices – we make grants to increase our knowledge and understanding of philanthropy and to enhance the practice of fundraising through studies and reports developed by the AFP Research Council and through the acquisition of reference materials purchased through the Pierpoint-Welde Research Library Fund available in the AFP Resource Center.
  • Better Educational programs – Grants and seed funding for AFP education programs like the Faculty Training Academy and education products like AFP’s Ready Reference Series help you grow professionally.  The Foundation also supports lectures and awards at AFP’s International Conference on Fundraising.
