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 30,000 members throughout 240 chapters—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.
