About Our Chapter


The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) East Texas Chapter was founded in January 2008. At the time, it was the largest new chapter in AFP International history, with over 40 founding members.  

Since its inception, the chapter has grown considerably with nearly 80 active professionals. The AFP East Texas Chapter advances philanthropy and fosters ethical and effective fundraising. The chapter usually meets the first Tuesday of every month from 11:30 am - 1 pm in Tyler, for lunch, networking and an educational program. Guests are welcome, but reservations are required.
