Welcome to the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Hampton Roads Chapter. We serve communities from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg, the Eastern Shore to the Outer Banks and all points in between. As a member, you are connected directly to 175+ development professionals in our chapter, and to thousands more around the US and the globe.
For 50 years, AFP has been the standard-bearer for professionalism in fundraising, and our chapter is one of more than 240 AFP chapters throughout the world. As a member of AFP-HR you have the opportunity to network and connect with fellow members who bring the enthusiasm of those new to the profession, and the wisdom of those with decades of years of fundraising experience.
AFP provides a breadth of online educational resources for development professionals. We offer a variety of professional education and networking opportunities in the region including virtual educational programs and member meetings, a Fundraising Leadership Symposium, and professional development opportunities. Each November we also host National Philanthropy Day – the regions’ largest gathering to celebrate the extraordinary change made possible by philanthropy in our community.
We have been recognized by AFP Global as an AFP IDEA Champion Designee for our chapter’s successful efforts to perform specific activities designed to increase IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access) within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy in all cultures. AFP-HR has also received the Ten Star Award for outstanding achievements and dedication to increasing professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of philanthropy.
We have amazing educational programs, socials and events planned throughout 2024 – there is something for everyone, including in-person and virtual events, scattered throughout the Hampton Roads region. We welcome all chapter members to get involved by joining a committee. If you are not a member yet, please watch our Facebook page and our LinkedIn page for information and planned activities.
