The San Diego Chapter of the worldwide Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) upholds the mission of the international association and advances philanthropy in the San Diego region by empowering members, prospective members and representatives of other organizations to practice effective and ethical fundraising.

AFP San Diego is dedicated to stimulating a world of generosity and positive social change through best practices in fundraising. The largest network of professionals devoted to fundraising worldwide—with 33,000 members—we raise more than $115 billion annually. This is equivalent to one-quarter of all charitable giving in North America. In San Diego, our focus is on strengthening the region by educating development professionals and nonprofit leaders in best practices in fundraising, applying the high standards of the AFP Code of Ethics.

What People Are Saying About the 46th Annual National Philanthropy Day®


         “Congratulations on an outstanding and extraordinarily successful National Philanthropy Day luncheon yesterday! It was an honor to be included among such wonderful community leaders and philanthropists. Great program–especially being able to finish a few minutes early this year. And the videos were great!”

o   Bill Littlejohn, Sharp HealthCare Foundation CEO and NPD 2018 Outstanding Development Professional


         “This was the best NPD I’ve ever been to—and I’ve gone to many of them across the country!”

o   Laura Deitrick, PhD, Associate Director of The Nonprofit Institute at USD


        “I must share one story that made my day: Chiho Sullivan (Outstanding Organizational Volunteer) was being served her lunch at the event and looked up to thank the server and recognized him as one who had been in the second graduating class at Kitchens for Good. He is now a proud and skilled employee of Town & Country. This warmed my heart and to think of the odds of having him be assigned to the Kitchens For Good table – that is what NPD is all about. Again thank you for all of the support, the beautiful gift and all that you do to enhance philanthropic opportunities in our region.”

o   Christy Wilson, Rancho Santa Fe Foundation President & CEO and NPD 2018 Planning Committee Chair


         “Thanks for modeling every day as NPD in San Diego!”

o   Neville Billamoria, Mission Federal Credit Union Senior Vice President of Membership & Chief Advocacy Officer
