Welcome to the AFP-Hampton Roads Chapter! Founded in 2001, we currently serve over 200 development professionals from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg, the Eastern Shore to the Outer Banks and all points in between. Our Chapter offers a variety of professional education and networking opportunities including monthly luncheons, a Fundraising Leadership Symposium and member socials. Each November, AFP-HR sponsors a National Philanthropy Day Celebration where over 600 development professionals, philanthropists, board members and guests celebrate philanthropy in Hampton Roads by honoring our region’s philanthropic leaders.
We have been recognized by AFP International and have received the Ten Star Gold Award for outstanding achievements and dedication to increasing professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of philanthropy. And we received the Friends of Diversity Designation for our efforts to increase inclusion by embracing and engaging diverse individuals and organizations within the fundraising profession.
This will be a year of intentional and engaging conversations for members of our profession. Be on the lookout for new pop-up workshops, socials and additional scholarships for our members to attend conferences. I look forward to seeing you at our next event!
