Each and every day, the important work you do demonstrates that you are a leader in effecting change in our community, making it a much better place for all of us. These three words—EmpowerStrengthenTransform—describe WHAT you do as a fundraiser and WHY you do it.

When you give to the BE the CAUSE Campaign, benefiting both our chapter and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy, you are investing in the future of our profession and advancing philanthropy for the greater good. Your investment in the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy will help support local, national, and international program.

  • Diversity & Inclusion – Is a pillar of the AFP Strategic Plan, scholarships for people from diverse communities is a priority for the Foundation.
  • Professional Development - Professional development grants (formerly scholarships) provide fundraisers and nonprofit leaders with education, training, and leadership development opportunities.
  • Research – provides an increased knowledge of fundraising, philanthropy, and social innovation, and includes the Growth in Giving Initiative.

We hope you are inspired by Joanne's experience and will make your gift today! Be sure to use the Drop downs for BE THE CAUSE and our Chapter Designation.

Wondering if this is something you can support? Here's what one of our own board members had to say:

AFP has always been a great resource and I took advantage of local educational forums and trainings. Several years ago, I felt it would be a benefit to attend the International Conference. At the time, I was working for a nonprofit that could not afford the conference fees or expenses. I applied for the Chamberlain Scholarship, which is available to first time attendees to the International Conference, regardless of how long you have been an AFP member. I was awarded the scholarship! It was such valuable experience, hearing national and international fundraising educators and top professionals as well as networking with fundraisers from around the globe!
