Our board is made up of a passionate and skilled group of directors that are ready to provide leadership and solid direction to each of our key areas of focus. We are all looking forward to providing our chapter with interesting education events, an exceptional National Philanthropy Day and opportunities to work together to advance the AFP mission “to enable people and organizations to practices effective and ethical fundraising through professional education, networking, research and advocacy.”
As members of AFP, we are part of a large community working together to enhance the communities where we live and work and the larger global community too! With more than 3,500 members in Canada and over 31,000 members internationally, AFP members raise over $100 billion annually.
