  • 2020 Ten Star AFP Chapter

    The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Central New York chapter has been named a 2020 Ten Star Chapter!
    Every year, AFP, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world, honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters, so Central New York is one of a select group  to earn this honor!
