Membership provides access to educational programs, networking opportunities and access to all of the benefits and services of AFP International. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming program!


Excitement is building for the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy’s BE the CAUSE Campaign! This brand new individual giving program supports essential tools and resources like the AFP Online Knowledge Center.

Take a moment now to view this short video from the AFP Foundation. You’ll see how your support helps advance the noble professional fundraising globally. A portion of your donation supports our chapter’s strategic initiatives.

Fundraising is the engine that drives your nonprofit organization. Your support of BE the CAUSE will insure the Foundation’s ability to provide resources and tools that help fundraisers and their organizations thrive.

Won’t you please BE the CAUSE?
