About Our Chapter and Event Schedule

Welcome to the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Central Texas Chapter!  

The Central Texas chapter has served nonprofit fundraising professionals in our community for over 35 years.  Our chapter currently serves nearly 50 members in the greater Waco, Temple and Killeen areas.  

Presently, our chapter holds monthly membership education meetings which are open to AFP members and guests.  Due to COVID, meetings this year may be held virtually and are free for all attendees, both members and non-members. When possible, we will meet in-person, and these education meetings will include lunch and are priced at $10 for AFP members, $15 for nonmembers.  (First time guests are complimentary - please contact Paige Corley at for assistance registering.)
