Welcome to the Central Virginia AFP Chapter! 

Why do we do what we do as fundraising professionals? Because our work matters. Because we believe in philanthropy. Because we want to change the world. Because we are inspired. 

I’m inspired – by each of you, by the 2019 chapter board, and most of all by the incredible good that we accomplish as a collective group in Central Virginia. As I think about what AFP means to me, inspiration is a huge part of it. 

However, friends, our work is not without challenge. But, with each of you as colleagues in our hard work, the challenges become surmountable, and I know that our Central Virginia region is a better place. The support network built within AFP Central Virginia is another huge part of why I got involved. 

So – thank you for visiting the AFP Central Virginia website – take a look around – engage in programming, all that the chapter has to offer (particularly to members), and the resources that are available because we are part of an international group. If you haven’t considered joining AFP, please do; we are a group of promise and we want you as a member of the team.

In dedication to our profession,

President, AFP Central Virginia
