National Philanthropy Day Luncheon

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 Gold Star and 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 2021-2024 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!​

  • Be the Cause Campaign

    If you have not already had the opportunity to make your gift to the Be the Cause gift yet this year, these next three days present a great chance to do so. During the AFP LEAD Conference, October 20-22, Blackbaud makes a matching contribution of $10 on every gift of $20 or more to Be the Cause.

    This year, we need another $352 in gifts (the extra $10 counts!) to reach our high goal, which maximizes (35% of total raised) dollars our chapter receives back to help fund local programming and scholarships.

    To make your gift, visit AFP Be the Cause. Thank you!
