The Arkansas Chapter is recognized as a Ten Star Gold Chapter for 2021. Fewer than 20
percent of AFP's 200 professional chapters earn this recognition, making AFP Arkansas one of the association's leading chapters around the world. AFP Arkansas has earned this classification for the past several years and is proud to deliver a high standard to our members.

The Arkansas Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals offers members the opportunity to connect with colleagues, engage in creative thinking, network with new friends and achieve great results in their work. Please check out our programs, volunteer opportunities and get to know your Chapter leaders. 

Congratulations to the Arkansas Chapter, one of the 98 chapters that earned the 2021 IDEA Champion Designation. IDEA stands for inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. The IDEA Champion Designation recognizes those chapters that have accomplished many of the key objectives in our goal of advancing diversity.
