IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access)

Our Mission:
The mission of the IDEA committee is to center and amplify marginalized voices and experiences for the betterment of the entire fundraising profession, and to be active agents in disrupting and dismantling systems of inequity and oppression that plague the philanthropic sector.

We provide IDEA-based programming to the public year-round, foster an inclusive environment of empowerment for BIPOC fundraisers and our allies, and work with the AFP board and committees to create a more welcoming environment that will retain and foster diversity amongst its membership, board, donors, and sponsors.

Support Us:
The IDEA committee strongly believes that finances should never be a barrier to access. Therefore, 100% of our programming is offered free of charge. If you would like to help us keep our programming free, please consider supporting us through a one-time donation.

Join Us:
The IDEA committee seeks philanthropic professionals to join its volunteer committee which meets online during the first Thursday of each month. For more information, please email Chapter Manager Katie Gomez.
