Community Announcements

  • AFP Community Statement

    While we have made progress as a country, we still have far to go to achieve racial equality.

    As fundraisers for nonprofit organizations, no matter our cause, we are part of the solution to making the world a better place—by listening, empathizing, inspiring, raising funds, and taking action.

    Our chapter is a designated "IDEA Champion” and follows the principles of IDEA: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access. But, we know we can do more. We are committed to supporting organizations working on issues of equality, racism, and racial justice through monetary donations. Our members raise funds for thousands of different causes, but stamping out institutional racism must be a priority for all. Most importantly, regardless of our race, gender, socioeconomic circumstances, sexual preferences, geography, or any other applied labels, we must ALL act, and we must all act TOGETHER.
