Welcome to the association of fundraising professionals!
The Inland Empire Chapter of the worldwide Association of Fundraising Professionals
advances philanthropy by enabling people and organizations to practice ethical and
effective fundraising. The core activities through which AFP fulfills this mission include education, training, mentoring, research, credentialing and advocacy.
What Does it Mean to Be an AFP Member?
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) serves the public trust by promoting ethical and effective fundraising. AFP members are guided in their ethical decision making by the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards, which is grounded in a set of values that fundraisers aspire to honor in their lives and work. When these values are evident in our fundraising practice, we believe that our work leads to integrity in our personal, professional, organizational and public lives.
An ethical fundraiser aspires to: observe and adhere to the AFP Code and all relevant laws and regulations; build personal confidence and public support by being trustworthy in all circumstances; practice honesty in relationships; be accountable for professional, organizational and public behavior; be transparent and forthcoming in all dealings; and be courageous in serving the public trust.
We strive to live out these values, which are at the heart of our public character as
philanthropic fundraisers, and to grow in our ethical understanding and practice.
