The Association of Fundraising Professionals - Hampton Roads Chapter (AFP-HR) is the region’s professional organization specifically supporting fundraisers and their work in philanthropy. AFP-HR has over 150 members and hosts monthly educational luncheons for its members and an annual Fundraising Leadership Symposium for all of Hampton Roads. We are proud of the work our chapter is doing in our community to support philanthropy and the fundraising professionals who make it possible.

Our signature event, National Philanthropy Day, is our chapter's observance of AFP Global’s annual celebration of philanthropy–giving, volunteering and charitable engagement—that highlights the accomplishments of this region’s philanthropic community. The celebration is the signature event saluting the impact of philanthropy in Hampton Roads. Event attendees are the decision-makers and difference-makers who make our community a better place to live, volunteer, and donate.

Proceeds from National Philanthropy Day help AFP Hampton Roads provide quality programming for our members, scholarships for professional development opportunities for local fundraisers, and networking opportunities and resources to equip members for success in supporting philanthropy.
