About Our Chapter

Providing individuals engaged in fundraising the confidence and tools to be successful.

General Information
The chapter was organized in 1995 to serve the area west of the Washington DC suburbs to West Virginia and north into Maryland.

Monthly Membership Meetings
The chapter holds 10 monthly membership meetings each year.  We meet at breakfast on the second Tuesday of each month.  Due to special events in July (VFRI) and November (NPD), we do not hold a membership meeting.  Monthly meetings include breakfast and a speaker.  The breakfast cost is $20 for members and $23 for non-members.  Members can pre-pay for the 10 monthly meetings and NPD.  Learn more about the pre-pay option.
Monthly Membership Meeting Locations 
The majority of our meetings will be held at The George Washington Hotel, Winchester, Virginia unless otherwise stated in the e-mail invitation. Two meetings a year are held at the Purple Iris, 1956 Winchester Ave, Martinsburg, WV.  Please check the location of our events carefully, as we serve a broad geographical area and are working to ensure that events are held in a variety of locations. 
AFP VA Tri-State Discovery Group Meetings
An AFP VA Tri-State Chapter Discovery Group Meeting is an opportunity to share challenges, ask questions, and enjoy the camaraderie of your peers. These meetings take place every other month at member organizations around the tri-state region, allowing all of our members to participate.  There is no cost to participate as an AFP member or as a member's guest.

Conferences and Symposiums
AFP VA Tri-State periodically offers special conferences and symposiums on specific topics of interest to our membership.  AFP members may attend these events at a reduced rate.

2018 Planned Giving Seminar
Ten Star Chapter
The AFP Tri-State chapter has been named a 2019 Ten Star Chapter.  Every year, AFP honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters, so the AFP Tri-State Chapter is one of a select group of chapters to earn this honor.
