The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Tri-State Chapter (AFP - GTS) is currently comprised of approximately 49 members representing a wide variety of non-profit organizations and fundraising expertise throughout the Tri-States area of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. The AFP Greater Tri-State Chapter is a Ten Star Chapter and strives to bring value to our members. There are many more fundraising professionals in our community who are not yet members of our association and many more opportunities to collaborate with the other AFP chapter in the Tri-States to maximize resources and to promote the profession statewide.  

Through education, training and advocacy AFP will continue to advance philanthropy to support the many important needs of the community. The 2018-2020 Strategic Plan provides an important roadmap that will serve as a guide for this organization through the next exciting years.  This Strategic Plan will help the chapter’s leadership stay the course and achieve the important goals that were identified with valuable input from the Board and committee members.

Please check out our programs, volunteer opportunities and get to know your Chapter leaders. If you're not a member, join today and be connected!​

  • ASSOCIATION OF FUNDRAISING PROFESSIONALS GREATER TRI-STATE CHAPTER HONORED AS TEN STAR CHAPTER

    The Association of Fundraising Professionals  Greater Tri-State Chapter (AFP-GTS) has been named a 2019 Ten Star Chapter.

    Every year, AFP, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world, honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters, so the AFP Greater Tri-State Chapter is one of a select group of chapters to earn this honor.

    Amy Schauer, AFP Greater Tri-State Chapter President and Executive Director of Development at Stonehill Franciscan Services, states, “It is a great honor for our AFP chapter to receive the Ten Star designation. Our local AFP Board and members strive to elevate the knowledge and experience of professional fundraisers in our area so we are equipped with best practices of ethical fundraising. Our members serve many noble causes that impact the community and are humbled to work with many generous philanthropists who change lives every day.”

    Ten Star Chapters are recognized at the AFP International Conference on Fundraising (ICON). Chapters also earn the privilege of displaying the Ten Star logo on their website, newsletters and stationary.

    Criteria for the award are determined by AFP International Headquarters. A list of several goals is published annually, and chapters must accomplish 10 of these goals during the year and submit a nomination form for verification to be honored.

    Since 1960, AFP has inspired global change and supported efforts that generated over $1 trillion.
