Welcome to the Central Virginia AFP Chapter!

Together we can better our communities, inspire good, and change the world.

Fundraising professionals and nonprofit leaders help donors fuel the work that is important to them. In a sea of information and nonprofit missions, we can provide the context needed by millions of individuals, corporations, foundations, and other entities that look for places in which their resources can do the most good. In many ways we are the conduits for connecting donor interests to our organizations’ visions…and together we are stronger.

As an industry, fundraisers help support entire communities, facilitate the sharing of innovative ideas, and build positive social movements.

When you join AFP, you are welcomed into an international group of the world’s most experienced fundraisers. We share our collective knowledge, mentor each other both professionally and, at times, emotionally, and create a supportive network that helps to guide our careers and personal development. Together, we are better.

As President of AFP Central Virginia, thank you for joining. If you have not had a chance to yet, I cannot encourage you enough to become part of this amazing organization for all of the reasons listed above and so much more.

While you are on the website, check out all of the things that both our local chapter and an organization with an international network can offer.
