Sponsorship Opportunities

Our local AFP Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties Chapter was founded 32 years ago to promote philanthropy and support the practice of ethical and effective fundraising. We do this through education, networking, mentoring, advocacy, and recognition. Our chapter is run by a board of directors featuring the counties’ top fundraising professionals and hosts a variety of educational trainings throughout the year. 

Your partnership with AFPSBV enables us to celebrate philanthropy in our communities, continue innovative educational opportunities for fundraisers and nonprofit professionals, and provides scholarships for AFP membership, trainings, and educational conferences.
