Welcome and thank you for visiting the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Greater San Fernando Valley Chapter website. You’ve come to a place where you can develop your knowledge, skills, and resources in the fundraising profession.

We are a chapter that consists of fundraising professionals from a wide range of nonprofit organizations and consulting firms throughout the Greater San Fernando Valley area, as well as Glendale, Pasadena, and Santa Clarita. We are a friendly, diverse group with a broad range of nonprofit expertise who value and respect one another.  Our membership represents institutions and organizations spanning the nonprofit sector.

As we enter 2023, we will be using a hybrid of virtual and in person seminars and events as the latest Coronavirus protocols allow. These educational seminars are a great way to explore trends, learn new techniques, and imagine innovations to enhance your development program. Our monthly seminars are also a great way to network and learn from colleagues. Please check the events calendar and sign up for one of our seminars today.

We strive to engage our members (and guests) to become more involved with our chapter. Not only are we a place to learn, but we are also a chapter in service to one another through leadership and mentoring opportunities.

On behalf of the board of the Greater San Fernando Valley Chapter, welcome to AFP!
