Diverse Communities Scholarship:
As a community of inclusion, the Association of Fundraising Professionals seeks, embraces, and engages diverse individuals, groups, and organizations with a broad representation of experiences, perspectives, thoughts and cultures within the fundraising profession. Through this strategic initiative, AFP is committed to activities that increase awareness of diversity issues. As part of this commitment, AFP Global and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy have created a diversity scholarship program to provide financial assistance for the professional development of fundraisers who are themselves members of one or more diverse communities, or are employed by grassroots organizations that primarily serve diverse populations.
