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!​

  • Message from the 2022 President


    I am honored to serve as the AFP, IA Greater

    Tri-State Chapter President for the 2022 year. As we begin our work together, I’d be remiss if I did not acknowledge the many non-profit leaders who have loyally served this chapter for the past 20 years.

    2022 marks a special milestone for the chapter- our 20th anniversary!  As a Board, we look forward to celebrating with you and working together to advance the fundraising profession in our region. 

    I encourage you to embrace the programming, networking opportunities, and professional resources available to you through your membership. Our local Board is working diligently on your behalf, and we invite you to join our efforts as a committee member, guest speaker, mentor/mentee, or another way that fits your interests. I hope you will take time to review our monthly newsletters and website resources to see the opportunities that await you.

    Thank you, again, for entrusting our Board of Directors to lead the AFP, IA Greater Tri-State Chapter this year. I truly appreciate your support and encourage you to share any feedback or ideas you may have as we work together.



    Courtney Leonard

    AFP, IA Greater Tri-State Chapter, President
