AFP Great Smoky Mountain Chapter


The Ten Star Great Smoky Mountain Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) provides networking and education opportunities for fundraisers and others who work in or support nonprofits in the Greater Knoxville area and its surrounding counties.

Nonprofits of all sizes are represented in our membership, which also includes consultants and other business professionals serving the nonprofit sector.

Our Chapter’s long tradition of collegiality is witnessed by our more than 25 years of collaborative success in hosting November’s National Philanthropy Day activities. Our local awards luncheon offers every area nonprofit an opportunity to celebrate and recognize its donors and volunteers.
