Message from Board President, Erin Layden

Welcome to the Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of AFP.
If you are a fundraiser looking for the resources to advance your career while engaging with the top professionals in the field you are in the right place. As the only professional association that represents the entire fundraising profession, AFP offers the guidance, experience, community, and leadership that we all need.
I have personally found such value in being an active member of AFP and our chapter, and am truly fortunate to be given the opportunity to serve as President of the chapter alongside some outstanding fundraising professionals.
Together, we continue to be the best resource for the fundraisers of Northwestern PA. With a membership made up of over 63 fundraisers representing 57 nonprofit organizations in greater Northwestern, PA, the wealth of knowledge this chapter provides and the comradery experienced among its members is truly invaluable for those in the field of fundraising.
I personally invite you to join us for one of our in-person or virtual gatherings to experience our chapter and get connected to professional fundraisers in NWPA.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you as a member of our chapter!
