2022 Membership Scholarships

AFP Hampton Roads Chapter Membership Scholarships


The Association of Fundraising Professionals Hampton Roads (AFP-HR) Chapter was founded in 2001 to provide professional education, career development, and growth of fundraising professionals in the region while promoting high ethical standards and collegiality for those in the fundraising profession.


This year we are pleased to offer three membership scholarships available to new members and former members whose membership has been inactive for more than 18 months. These scholarships cover one year of AFP Global membership and AFP-HR Chapter membership.


The General Membership Scholarships are open to anyone seeking membership in AFP-HR. Guidelines for the Diversity Membership Scholarship are outlined below:

  • A fundraising professional who self identifies as coming from an eligible diverse community as defined by AFP (African-American, Asian, Faith-based, LGBTQ, Hispanic, Jewish or Rural), or
  • A fundraising professional or nonprofit sector executive director employed by an eligible AFP diverse community where at least 50% or more staff members are from that diverse community, or
  • An employee for a nonprofit organization that serves a 50% or more eligible AFP diverse community client base.


AFP-HR chapter meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday and vary in topic. Scholarship recipients are expected to make every effort to attend all chapter meetings and other scheduled events for the duration of the scholarship membership.
